It was another cold Monday evening when I met my friend in the TriBeCa area (not a soul around) at the relatively new French restaurant Fouquet Brasserie in New York’s Tribeca. Additionally, it is on the ground floor of the new TriBeCa hotel, Hotel Barriere Fouquet, and marks the 11th Fouquet location. The hotel is also home to the speak-easy-inspired Bar Titsou and a second casual dining space, Par Ici Cafe.

Here are some outside photos of the hotel.

What to order?

The Caesar Salad with an add-on of Chicken Breast was cooked just right!

As expected, the chicken was scrumptious, and the salad was fresh. Un répas delicieux as my French friends say.

Lastly, If you find yourself in the TriBeCa neighborhood, check out the Fouquet brasserie for a lovely evening of dining.

Who was Jean Fouquet?

Jean Fouquet was an incredibly skilled artist during the French Renaissance period who was born in Tours, France in the late 15th century. Hence, is talent in painting and illuminating manuscripts was truly exceptional. Since his work was greatly influenced by the Flemish painting tradition, we discover portraits renowned for their use of vibrant colors and lifelike expressions.

Fouquet’s magnum opus, Les Grandes Chroniques de France, and his portraits of Charles VII and Agnes Sorel were the first true portraits of the French royal family. Subsequently, these were among his most famous works.

Calligrapher and Designer

In addition to his artistic abilities, Fouquet was also a talented calligrapher and designer. Indeed, he had a significant impact on the French art scene, and the memory of his outstanding work still lives on as one of France’s greatest Renaissance artists.
