La Grande Boucherie

Rating
4.6/5

French dining at La Grande Boucherie, a heavenly slice of Paris on West 53rd Street, is a place to display my celebratory Eiffel Tower earrings. This is a restaurant de l’amour. It is a beautiful, relaxing, and delightful respite from the city’s hustle and bustle.

A friend suggested we meet there. No, not the “real” Paris, but right here in New York. I set out to review La Grande Boucherie at 145 West 53rd Street. I discovered a remarkable, sumptuous dining venue.

The restaurant offers inside and outside dining along Sixth Avenue and a quasi-brasserie setting in the Art Nouveau style. Outdoor dining is year-round. Inside are a dining room, bar, and mezzanine areas.

I reviewed the dessert menu first, and with that in mind, I ordered the Salade Niçoise. Hot, fresh French bread arrived. Ooh-la-la!

La Grand Boucherie Salade Niçoise: Ahi Tuna, haricots vert, tomato, oak leaf, olives, organic egg, anchovy, red wine, and vinaigrette. It was fresh and delightful.

There are many fine choices for dessert.

I ordered the mysterious Babar Exotique Au Rhum Leger.

Inside the pastry were small pieces of pineapple. The whipped creme and rum topping I generously poured added to its charm, flavor, and presentation.

Délicieux bien sur!

Fresh, hot coffee was the apposite accompaniment.

I highly recommend La Grande Boucherie. It’s dining in an opulent dreamscape of a faraway land.

Bon appetit from Sora Vernikoff!
