Le Bernardin

It was my birthday yesterday, and I am now one year closer to my mid-twenties. In celebration, here is a visual post of when I dined at one of the greatest, Le Bernardin. I was there exactly a year ago, and it was a beautifully elegant birthday dinner with impeccable food and unforgettable company. If you enjoy seafood, Le Bernardin will not disappoint. Chef Eric Ripert flawlessly presents dish after dish of intricate combinations, using a global influence for his French cuisine. The service is a seamlessly choreographed dance and the dining room a spacious modern affair. Did I mention it holds 3 Michelin Stars and is consistently New York's best? I can't wait to come back!
