Picholine has been on our Manhattan list for many years. No more.
We went tonight. The meal was mediocre and very expensive.
The restaurant was not close to full, and we can see why.
The Chicken Kiev was tasteless. The souffle was dry and also tasteless. The dining room had no buzz.
Recommendation: Think twice before you want to spend a ton for a meal that is passable at best.
This is sad for us, as we always loved this restaurant.
