France not only gave New York City and America the Statue of Liberty, but also a love for French food. When it's authentic French food, the love gets even stronger, and there are several restaurants that serve this. You can choose from a number of French restaurants located at different places in the City. You should be able to find one close to where you live or work, or close to where you will be attending a show or other function.
This is the second location of this restaurant, which offers a variety of food offerings, including a large selection of French dishes. You can choose from boudine blanc, steak tartare, foie gras, filet mignon, and French salads. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night meals, also. If you wish, you can literally eat your entire day's meals at the same restaurant, and not be disappointed with any of them.
Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant offers two eating venues—one that is more formal and another that is more "laid-back". Choose the formal setting for a business dinner or when you want to impress that certain someone, and the more casual setting for an enjoyable, relaxed evening.
No matter which setting you choose, you can be assured of some of the best French cuisine in New York City. You can choose from entrees or a tasting menu, if you can't make up your mind what you want. Save room for something from the "chocolates" section or dessert section of the menu.
This restaurant offers eight menus to choose from. Six of them are for entrees for the following meals: breakfast, lunch, afternoon, dinner, after hours, and Sunday brunch. The other two menus are a dessert menu and a wine menu. In other words, no matter when you go into Balthazar Restaurant, you're going to be served some of the best authentic French food you can find. The problem is going to be exactly what you're going to eat.
This restaurant gives you choices between regular brunch and dinner menus and pre-fixe brunch and dinner menus. In addition, you can choose from a carte de fois gras menu. With so many selections, you may find it hard to decide what you want to eat. The solution is simple—plan on making a trip to Paradou a frequent event, so that you can try as many dishes as possible.
Paradou is a great place, the food is fantastic and the people are super nice. Even my friend who is half French and is really picky with food likes every meal he's had here. I haven't been there in awhile but hopefully will go soon.
