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!

Master Your Mindset: The Master’s Way

Nader conveys that eliminating our toxic mindset begins with identifying whether we operate our lives with humility or hubris. Humility allows us to admit our weaknesses, accept our strengths, and live truthfully. Conversely, hubris is a life filled with deception. Nader’s readers are encouraged to choose whether they lead a life of hubris or humility; the outcome is in your control, depending on which way you live.

Hallelujah Junction featured nine company ballerinas and danseurs draped in the sartorial elegance of black and white attire metaphorically linked both to the keys of a piano and the musically rich, cyclic intones of Adams’s oeuvre.
