"This is, in every essence of the word – true luxury dining. So hop in your most expensive outfit, tell James to bring out the limo – and head to Midtown as soon as possible."
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
Honest Cooking Editor in Chief visited the upscale Le Bernardin restaurant, and was deeply impressed with the fact that, even though the restaurant has been around for more than two decades, it is still relevant. He writes "The food is both visually appealing, delicious, and even if Eric Ripert has a few miles under the hood – certainly not stuffy or old fashioned. Sure, it has it’s legs solidly placed in classic French gastronomy, but Le Bernardin has moved with the times – now serving a menu that feels lighter and more contemporary than you might expect."
Le Bernardin is a seafood restaurant, and Kalle Bergman describes some of the dishes "- The arctic char, served mi cuit with truffled peas and a butter tarragon emulsion is pure pleasure, one of those dishes where you can’t help but smiling and humming through every bite. The shellfish medley with yuzu scented custard and a smoked bonito broth is both fun and funky, deep flavors of the ocean, with tones of liver and butter that compliment each other perfectly. The technique is flawless, and the experience is, for lack of a better word – yummy."
He concludes - "This is, in every essence of the word – true luxury dining. So hop in your most expensive outfit, tell James to bring out the limo – and head to Midtown as soon as possible."
