Midtown West

Le Bernardin

155 W. 51st St.
New York, NY, 10019, United States
TEL: (212) 554-1515

Considered one of New York’s elite restaurants, Le Bernardin is the epitome of a chic, white-tablecloth French restaurant in Manhattan. With its honey-colored wood paneling and leather and steel chairs, the atmosphere exudes modern elegance. But it’s the service and food that sealed Le Bernardin’s reputation—and its three Michelin stars. Seafood is the specialty, accompanied by inventive sauces. The two testing menus are popular and include exotic entrees such as Crispy Black Bass served with mini pork buns. The rest of the menu is divided into “almost raw,” and “barely touched” and “lightly cooked.” You can’t go wrong in any category.

Insider Tip:

Chef-owner Eric Ripert has become a TV celebrity: He hosts his own PBS show, Avec Eric, frequently judges on Bravo's Top Chef, and was in the HBO series Treme.
