What an experience!!

We had the late seating (10:30pm) and tried the Prixe-Fixe menu. Everything is cooked to perfection and the service is excellent. Pricey but totally worth it if you want to include a Michelin star restaurant in your trip to New York.

Food was excellent though the portions are a bit small. Be prepared for very high prices. But the dishes lived up to the reputation of the retardant which is consistently rated as one of the best in the world.

I had wanted to go to Eric Rupert's restaurant ever since I watched him on Anthony Bourdain's show No Reservations. He seemed so different of Bourdain that you could tell they are great friends. But the way he talked about food and his pleasure in eating wonderful fish, I knew I had to go to his restaurant. It took a... More

It was the perfect lunch to recover from a redeye flight! The quality of service and food is so consistent, especially the amazing wine selection. Chambertin by the glass is always a winner for me. The lobster risotto w/ truffle was the star! LB will always be my power lunch go to!

While staying at our favorite hotel, taking advise from the concierges, we walked right out the front and across the street to an incredible event. I say event because we were hooked up a seat where we could everything and everyone. We were handed a menu that could choke a horse and a wine menu that would make a grape... More

Went here for the fixed price lunch. I think it was around $50. The website will give the correct amount. Three courses and all excellent. Had the crab appetizer, lobster main and a excellent cherry dessert. The portions of the app and main were small portions but very rich and filling. Definitely did not leave hungry. Felt a bit intimidated... More

We dined at Le Bernardin during a business trip to NYC where my partner accompanied me. Despite reserving several weeks ahead, we were seated at a large table suitable for 6-8 people despite only being a party of two. The food was of a very high standard and the langoustine in particular was excellent. However, at several points during the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
