To dine at the three Michelin star restaurant Le Bernardin with the whole family, you must be either quite wealthy or celebrating life. In our case, it was most certainly the latter! (Fortunately or not, this is another debate.) In any case, the dinner was absolutely flawless, from the beginning to the end. The setting, the service, the wine, the food, not a single gripe!
Fresh lettuce and tomatoes, high quality of meat, tasty cheeses, and a fancy and attractive burger is what you can expect at L’Artisan du Burger!
Ever since my boys left home for college, I have loved Sunday’s brunch. It’s a great way to get the family back together at a very convenient time for everyone! I moved to NY this past summer and I’ve had the pleasure of brunching and trying out many places. This is my personal ranking from one to ten.
This is another vegetarian Lebanese dish with an olive oil base. It’s always a success. Easy to make and as it is a cold dish, you can prepare it in advance – even a day or two before.
Bangkok – part 2
Ok now, let’s get serious! Let’s talk about cocktails baby!
In my last post, I talked about my culinary experiences and the restaurants I tried in Bangkok. In this post, I would like to talk about the city’s rooftop bars. Unfortunately, I couldn’t try them all but I tried a few that should give you an accurate overview.
Bangkok – Part 1
I just came back from my trip to Bangkok and my head is still spinning with all the exotic flavors and aromas. The street noises, traffic, tuk tuk rides, lingering odors, colorful sceneries, and magnificent temples stimulated all my senses. A week in this busy city with a population of 8 million people can’t be forgotten even after a draining 23-hour flight and 12 hours of jetlag.
Born in the suburb of Marseille, Jean-Louis Nomicos grew up in a multicultural Mediterranean environment where Italians, Syrians, Lebanese, and many others mingled and where the grandmas used to exchange their recipes. Jean-Louis Nomicos is proud of his heritage and he doesn’t hesitate to highlight it in his cuisine.
Today’s post is from my special guest in Tokyo: Valérie Steinlauf. Valérie is a food lover and a restaurant’s connoisseur. I trust 100% her judgment and I’m very happy she’s sharing with us her amazing experience at Craftale.
Two brothers, Oliver and Leo, travelled from California to the East coast and they had the biggest cultural shock ever in NYC! There were no real Taqueria (taco stalls) in NYC! Certainly not like the ones they loved in their native Northern California. Hence they decided to remedy this dramatic situation, and Dos Toros was born!
Le bistrot de Maëlle et Augustin in the 1st arrondissement was among the first bistros I went to in Paris when we arrived in 2012. I don’t quite remember how we ended up there, but I remember it was after a show. Despite the hour – it was quite late – the restaurant was packed. We were lucky to have a table of four available without reservation. That evening, I recall we had a great dinner and the server was very funny and pleasant. Since then, I have been back several times, and it was always a pleasure.
