Legendary chef Eric Ripert's seafood-centric tasting menu at Le Bernardin is the ultimate indulgence. The three-Michelin-starred restaurant consistently ranks among the world's best thanks to chef Ripert's obsession with quality and superb service. Ripert has been the Executive Chef for more than two decades, cementing his unmatched reputation for reinventing simple yet stunning ways to present fish ranging from "almost raw" to "lightly cooked." When paired with selections from award-winning Wine Director Aldo Sohm's 15,000-bottle global collection, it transcends a meal and becomes an experience. If you want a taste sans pomp and circumstance, find a seat in the lounge, where you can get a smoked salmon croque monsieur topped with a mound of caviar or a warm lobster and truffle–filled brioche. For dining room seating, reservations are recommended and become available online a month in advance.
