One topic I didn’t write about much this week – the restaurants I visited.Per a reader’s request for more food commentary, here are my comments on the four places I indulged at this week: Le Cirque, Babbo, Morimoto, and Sapporo East.
This experience was my first at Le Cirque. I walked into a wine bar full of banker douchebags and women who were impeccably dressed. I mean, dressed to a T, I wouldn’t change a thing. If you’re looking to pick up a wealthy, arrogant rich guy, this would be the bar to grab a drink. Just make sure you’re wearing something spectacular, otherwise, you’ll get eaten alive.
In the restaurant, the atmosphere is a little corporate and stuffy, but everyone seemed to be enjoying their group’s conversation. As for the food…The new chef Christophe Bellanadid not disappoint me. I ordered the cod wrapped in crispy potatoes (which I later learned is a Daniel Boulud dish) that was perfectly prepared. To finish I ordered the chocolate souffle. WRONG CHOICE. Thank goodness my friend ordered the chocolate fondant which was gooey and spectacular.
Here’s what I would suggest Le Cirque for:
- A celebration with a group
- A man trying to impress his date
- Corporate dinner with clients you can expense
- Wine lovers who enjoy paring their favorite vinatges with sliders
- Golddiggers looking to take a trip sometime soon
