Flûte was created by founder and owner Hervé Rousseau, in 1997, in a space that was once home to the Prohibition-era speakeasy, Club Intime. A native Parisian, Hervé was inspired by his experience in the wine industry to combine New York's unparalleled cocktail culture with a French attitude towards champagne, where no one waits for a special occasion to pop open a bottle of bubbly. The menu contains "The Magic Flutes", trios of champagnes each made from a single grape and savory plates including yellowfin Tuna Tartare and their Signature Vietnamese Fusion Spring rolls, perfect for an evening filled with soul.
