Recently my girlfriend and I decided to celebrate just for the sake of celebrating. We went to The Leopard at Des Artistes located at 1 West 67th Street, just off Central Park West in Manhattan.
Old World Ambiance
It’s a classy restaurant and pricey but truthfully, I enjoyed the low-key, old-world ambiance with its interesting murals beautifully displayed on the walls for patrons to enjoy!
Here are some images of the bar area, the dining area, and some of the artwork.
The Leopard at Des Artistes is an Italian culinary delight. It distinguishes its food from North to South of Italy, with the use of butter versus olive oil, and all kinds of pasta and popular vegetables native to that region. The restaurant prides itself in creating everyday food with respect to Italian cultural traditions with quality ingredients, hospitality, and outstanding service. As they like to say, “Buon Appetito!
What to order?
Well, I wasn’t famished and decided to go light and ordered Merluzzo Al Fomo, which is oven-baked cod. I opted out of the artichokes and white wine sauce but added a side of fabulous roasted potatoes!
