Le Bernardin

Our final fancy overseas lunch was at Eric Ripert's restaurant, Le Bernardin in mid-town, New York City.

A very unobstrusive entrance just off 5th avenue.  Unfortunately, Le Bernardin has a jacket policy for men, so G was lent a navy jacket to "match" his grey suit pants, but that embarrassment aside, lunch was a seafood bonanza!

  1. Wow! You certainly went to higher class places than we did! Amy Ruths was about as classy as we got! The food looked amazing.

    You forgot to mention your highlight of the whole trip!
