Nike magistax proximo an upper East Side gem, you wouldn know it was there and that the way the neighborhood likes it. It a lovely French bistro run by two sisters who treat magista on sale you like you are one of their oldest clients, even if you are new to their hospitality. I started with the beet and celeriac remoulade and as my brother said, it a perfect way to kick start a good meal. It delicious, cleanses your palate and makes you feel fresh!My entree was an artic char served on a ratatouille, with a mussel sauce. I am not a huge mussel fan, so felt well rewarded for taking the risk when the sauce was light, infused with saffron, and let the char shine through. Dessert doesn have to be one thing or another they let you have a bit of this and a scoop of that. Not to be missed the chocolate mousse and lemon tart. Anyone who finds the service here anything but accomodating and gracious just isn trying. We found not only refuge during the snow storm, but a satisfying and superb dinner out!
This old restaurant has declined sharply. The atmosphere was very unfriendly and the service was poorwe got a very poor reaction from our waitress. The fish was not what we were lead to expect. The wine recommmended was not very good, either. This is all disappointing because this was one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions, like our wedding anniversary. Considering that its prices are high, we will not be going back.
While the people were nice and there was a nice quiet atmosphere, for the price the food was unacceptable. I had the duck, which was okay, but excessively over cooked. My boyfriend order the special, Le Boeuf a la mode, and it was shameful! It was like magista on sale airplane food, or cafeteria food! The nike magistax proximo beef was overcooked, in a nonamazing brownish sauce with old frozen carrots and freezer burnt peas. My god! I was shocked to see someone served that in a restaurant. Also, the desserts were unremarkable and too sweet. The appetizers were pretty tasty, but still. not enough so to make up for the frozen veggies. Le Boeuf a la mode means beef in the current fashion. This restaurant was definitely not in the current fashion. More like the fashion 50 magista on sale years ago. and the crowd who went there reflected that.
Pros: Nice quiet atmosphere. Reasonably priced wine list.
Cons: food, price
My husband and I go to this restaurant when we are in need of some very tasty food on nike magistax proximo special occasions. Though the atmosphere and decoration are totally not to our taste, the food allows us to overlook that completely. The food is consistently excellent. We nike magistax proximo often have great food when eating out in this city, but we have found that most places will disappoint, at least on occasion. They have a desertcart, which I love, though I always torn between the creme caramel and the chocolate mousse. If your first concern when eating out is simply food, then this restaurant is for you nike magistax proximo magista on sale.
