Profile

Packed into a narrow storefront on a trendy East Village street, Taureau offers a laid-back fondue experience. Thirty-eight crammed-together seats foster conversation and, frequently, romance. Chef Didier Pawlicki, formerly of Soho’s La Sirene, impresses with an array of both oil- and cheese-based fondue, ranging from the traditional Swiss to tangy Cheddar/Monterey and parmesan aged for 18 months. Taureau translates to “bull” from French, and fittingly, meats stand out. While the filet mignon is an attractive choice, the beautifully marbled ribeye steak, dipped for four or five seconds into your choice of oil, is exquisite. Herbivores, too, will face no obstacles in search of something to dip. The breadth of vegetables, and even side orders of meat, come in unlimited quantities, and while pricey, are worth it. Don't arrive with intentions of a “chocolate dinner,” as dessert fondue can only be ordered as a companion to a main course, though this little rule shouldn't stop you from experiencing Taureau,
