We are a couple and we just finished visiting MoMA and walked here to have lunch on a Monday at about 12:30pm. I read on Le Bernadin's website that they offer a $45 prix fixe lunch in the lounge which sounds affordable. As this could be our only NYC trip I wanted to sample some great food in this metropolis. I was a little surprised that the lounge was more or less empty when we arrived. Seemingly not many are aware of the offer.
We were comfortably seated in the quiet corner of the lounge and everything was fantastic. My main course was organic salmon in a mushrooms and lotus root broth. It was simply lovely. This place is very original in how to cook fish dishes. My wife enjoyed her skate dish very much, too.
We saw two gentlemen nearby complained to the waiter that the food preparation was taking too long and one of them had to leave soon. In the end one of them did leave without really touching the main course. So beware, service could be slow here.
