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 located 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, ordered the Salade Niçoise. Hot, fresh French bread arrived. Ooh-la-la!

La Grand Boucherie Salade Nicoise: 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. Drum roll s’il vous plait!

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!

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.

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.
