Osteria Tulia’s got a new little sister! The long-awaited The French, from Chef Vincenzo Betulia, opens today in downtown Naples.

Moules Frites (steamed Dutch mussels, saffron dijon mustard, fries)

The French
The vibe: Turn-of-the-century Parisian brasserie. Think Moulin Rouge with all of the sophistication, none of the scandal.

The menu: A mix of traditionally rooted French dishes and new takes on French classics, like the oeufs mimosa with braised octopus: deviled eggs and seafood tossed in a cumin vinaigrette. See the whole thing here.

Must try: Les Fleurs de Courgettes Farcies—local squash blossoms, lobster, mint, cucumber and leeks—and The Frenchy Brasserie Burger with smoked bacon, caramelized onion marmalade, gruyere cheese and brioche. Et aussi, stretch your craft beer repertoire with the best selection of French craft beers in Naples.

Hours: Daily for lunch from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and for dinner beginning at 5 p.m.; Sunday brunch from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Tartare de Boeuf (classic chopped filet mignon, cornichons, egg yolk, market greens)
