As Good As It Gets

Although we moved to Raleigh,NC last year, we make sure to dine at Fleur de Sel whenever we return to NY. Few other restaurants provide such consistantly fabulous food, gracious service and a pleasant dining atmosphere. The wine list includes varied and knowledgible selections. Fleur de Sel is always well worth the trip.

The food was terrible

My wife visited Fleur de Sel for dinner on a Friday evening in December 2003. We both felt that the food was terrible. The menu featured slabs of meat (or fish) with tasteless sauces. Overall, this is one of the worst “first class” restaurants we have ever visited in NYC, Montreal, Toronto, San Francisco, Boston, etc. How it survives in the highly competitive NYC market is completely beyond us. We certainly will never return.

You cannot beat the tasting menu here, for dinner or lunch. It's such a value for the quality. The food is some of the best in NY, and if you pair the meal with wine it is guaranteed to be a delight. Oh yeah, and it makes for a romantic date place too.

Forget Paris!

This place out Paris's Paris with its incredulous classic yet complex country fare straight from Brittany. Fleur de Sel shines brightly among the sea of brasseries and bistros that litter NYC. Why go to the Left Bank when the Flatiron District beckons you to the very best of Gallic cuisine.
