Orsay- a nice surprise

rosy | Jun 25, 2001 10:19 AM

HAd a spur of the moment dinner Friday night at Orsay at 75th and Lex.

No reservation, showed up early- about 6:30 and got a great table for 2 on the patio. Generally, I don't like sidewalk tables, but this was a foot above the sidewalk with a little fence and greenery, so we could see everyone walking by, but they were not on top of us. Very pleasant environment.

food was top notch. My friend and I had steak frites, with a nice green salad to start.

Salad was a great mix of greens, on top of tomatoes with some sweeet corn and a vinagrette with truffle oil.

Steaks were perfectly done medium with wonderfully crisp frites with a side of bernaise sauce.

Desserts were not the high point with an average tarte tatin shared by us, but passable.

I recommend a visit.
