My husband and I went to NYC as a Christmas & Anniversary gift to each other. We read many restaurant reviews and decided to choose Picholine for our Saturday night special dinner. It was just outstanding! The service was superb and matched the unique and outstanding cuisine! We were seated at a banquette in the back room and it was cozy and romantic.We chose the 3 course prix-fixe dinner for $98. The food choices were amazing and I chose the "fish and chips" appetizer after seeing it served to someone else. I would never have guessed that it was fish & chips. It was lovely, a very elegant and unusual presentation that tasted as good as it looked. Entrees were perfect and we chose the cheese cart instead of desert. Ooh la la, the cheese cart was as good as any we've had in out many travels to France. The nice touch was that we chose what we wanted and then the cart was wheeled away and we were brought a plate with our 3 choices of cheese with accompaniaments as well as a sheet that had the name and description of the cheeses we had chosen. Since we were celebrating our anniversary, we received a plate with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate! A very lovely touch and not too much food. We couldn't have enjoyed the evening more! This is a gem of a restaurant!
