Step inside lively Le Diplomate from Stephen Starr and you might think you've escaped to a Parisian brasserie. Whether it's the open-air patio, resembling a cafe in the Latin Quarter with woven chairs and marble-topped tables, or the indoor red leather booths, patrons fill up on classic French bistro fare like steak frites or a tantalizing mushroom tart.
