Please I beg you do not waste your time at the new Le
Cirque 2000; it's britches have become too big for
what it should be. It cannot turn out the soigne food
you are hoping for at the volume that it does. Instead
opt for places like Union Pacific, Cafe Boulud, Cello,
and of course Daniel.
I go to Daniel and Cafe Boulud a lot. We decided on Le
Cirque for a change of pace and because a Daniel staff
member I have become good friends with recommended it.
I'll go and judge for myself and I'll post my thoughts
on Monday. I've heard mixed reviews, none as negative
as yours however, but people I trust have enjoyed it.
