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!

Tonight was an entertaining concert by influential, gifted, and driven artists. We shall be hearing from them more and more as their sparkling careers continue to evolve. The band was solid, the sound balance was excellent, and the musicians seamlessly shifted through the demands and diverse styles of the songs.

Bullet Train

We’ve entered a dreamscape created by the collective minds of Monty Python, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, and Stanley Kubrick. In this virtual world, we laugh at violence, wait for punchlines, root for our heroes, and experience larger-than-life events that can only occur in fantasies.
