Le Bernardin [bar]

I just love the Le Bernardin bar! There are lots of delicious bites on the menu and it’s great to be able to pop in without a reservation. This time I’m with a true food lover, CY Eats. She’s become one of my favorite dining companions! It’s so much fun to eat with people who enjoy it as much as I do. Over a beautiful bottle of bubbly (Chartogne-Taillet Les Barres Extra Brut), we feasted on dish after amazing dish. Seriously, each one was better than the last. I can’t stop thinking about the smoked salmon croque monsieur with golden osetra caviar, the king crab medley, and the barely cooked salmon. Oh, and the incredible lobster lasagna, the salmon rillette, and the gorgeous amuse bouches! So basically, every single thing that we ate. 😉 I had a blast catching up with CY, as always. A million thanks to Chef Eric Gestel (Executive Sous) for an absolutely outstanding meal!
