Charles and I picked La Bernardin as the restaurant to splurge on while we were in NYC last April. The restaurant is famous for being one of the best destination for seafood lovers in New York and I couldn’t say no to that! La Bernardin is awarded three-star michelin and is number 24 on the World’s Top 50 Restaurant.
We decided to go for their 3 course lunch set and arrived around noon. Service was impeccable and delicious has to be an understatement for this coveted restaurant. To give you an idea on what a set lunch at La Bernardin looks like…
So that was the complimentary appetizer (lobster), the first course (umi sashimi), second course (cod fish) and third course (mango sorbet). The damage is US$89++ per pax. We loved every aspect of the meal and agreed that this had to be the best meal we have ever had in our lives! Worth every penny we spent. After the amazing lunch, we walked over to the Museum of Modern Art which was pretty nearby and suffered from food coma while we were there. Hahaha.
Remember to book your table early if you like to go. We emailed them instead of going through their booking system (opentable) around 3 weeks before the actual weekday. Highly recommend!
