It was a beautiful late spring night to walk around the neighborhood just next to New York’s Little Italy. Balthazar French Cafe was busy and beckoning as I approached for an early dinner.

Comfortable seating was available al fresco or inside.

The cocktail, wine, and dinner menus offer epicures and friendly visitors alike many options.

I started with a chilled bottle of Avian water, a perfect preparation for the FRISÉE AUX LARDONS consisting of chicory salad with a warm bacon shallot vinaigrette and a soft-poached egg. This paired beautifully with the HALF CRAB MAYONNAISE.

Everything was fresh and delicious! Wait staff are friendly, attentive and efficient.

When you are in the neighborhood, try Balthazar for any meal. Their other dishes, including their famous fresh hot bread and creamy cappuccino, are fabulous. For busy times of day, it’s best to make reservations at the phone number listed below,

Bon appetite!
