Le Cirque revisited

  • 2

Or, is it worth revisiting Le Cirque?

Well, in a few weeks I will be there for a special occasion and I was hoping for some guidance. Any not-to-be-missed items?

I looked at the menu online and while I think it may be hard to have the food worth what they charge, I am not paying. So what should I eat?

Btw, the tasting menu is out as a few of the party have the appetite of small birds.

  1. I've not been since they moved to the Bloomberg building, but it was recently reviewed in the New York Times and got three stars, I believe.

    1. I was just there for restaurant week. I loved it. I had the chestnut parpaddelle appetizer, branzino & the fabulous chocolate dessert. I loved every minute of it. Since my family is european we are used to long dinners. So I was there with my girlfriends and chatting it up long after we drank out coffee. The staff never rushed us & even kept refilling our water goblets. It is worth the pricetag, esp. for a special occasion.
