Le Bernardin NYC

Le Bernardin has been around the NYC dining scene for decades. It’s a seafood based restaurant with a meat and vegetable dish thrown in for those guest that come with the seafood lovers. If your not a seafood fan there are much better options at other resteraunts.  Proper attire is required in the dining room (jackets for gentlemen).  We had the Chef’s tasting menu at $225 dollars per head with the wine pairings for an additional $145 each.  This does not include coffee which is $5 per cup, rather petty after ordering a $740 dollar meal.

Each and every course was plated beautifully and was of the highest quality available for the season. The salmon was farmed this time of year, personally I would rather have skip it and had something else wild had I noticed beforehand. The preparation was excellent however it was not flawless; the Dove Sole was overcooked. The wine pairings where very nice with familiar quality labels.

Le Bernardin is a special place that I would recomend to any seafood lover. The dining room is elegant and pace of service very relaxed so it’s perfect for couples.
