After several New Americans including supersonic culinary flight at Blue Hill we felt a need to go back to basics.
We had a great bouillabaisse yesterday at Balthazar, served in a small flame Le Creuset (or similar) Bouillabaisse pot with a lid. Enough portion for two but I could easily finish two pots.
We also had great sardines, escargot, stake tartar and ravioli with spinach & ricotta cheese.
In the mood for back-to-basics we skipped, not as usual, the plateau de fruit de mer.
The bread was good as usual.
Good French bistro food...and good people watching part of the deal at Balthazar.
