My wife and I are going to Balthazar in a few days to use a gift certificate. Neither of us have been there before and I can't think that either of us will make a habit of going there since we've never seen fit to go in the first place. It's not in my favorite part of town and it's not my favorite kind of restaurant. All that aside, can anyone recommend from experience some of the better options on the menu? I was really hoping that it would be a cold night perfect for stick-to-your-ribs French food but it doesn't appear to be in the offing. Has anyone had the Thursday special: Cailles Farcis? Thanks for the help!
