If you thought Charlie Palmer's Aureole in NYC was beyond your budget, think again, and try the Big Mag Boeuf deal, only available Sunday, 5-10 in the evening, in the bar area. Hold on, don't stop reading. The bar area in Aureole, is wonderful. You are not stuck in a noisy back room. Aureole's bar area for dining, surpasses many restaurant dining rooms. It retains an intimacy without the noise and carrying on found in many so-called bar areas. Now for the deal and dinner. For $49.00 you get an exquisite 3 course meal. For openers we each had a seasonal market salad which was delicious and fresh. The main course is why you come. The entree is a Roast Rib of Beef on the bone for two, with sauteed spinach and some of the best pomme frittes I have ever had. For dessert was a Baba Bouchon with chantilly cream. Yum! Now the clincher to all this is that with the meal and included in the price are Bourdeaux wine pairings. That's right. the wine is included. All for under 100 bucks before tip. Phenomenal meal, beautifully tasteful surroundings, and professional friendly service. Can't wait to go back.
