While NYC is the city that never sleeps, you might have a little trouble trying to find a late night restaurant to end that special night after the opera or a broadway show.
Search no more. Balthazar is the perfect place; and its menu is absolutely delish!
I went after a show looking for a place with great food, cozy ambiance and that would allow me to enjoy my dinner with no rush around midnight. This place was perfect. We ordered the French onion soup... what a delight for cheese lovers like me, and the tangy garlicky escargots as an appetizer, perfectly seasoned and cooked. Then, the mussels, the oysters and a savory crepe with kale and raisins that were all great.
Trust me, you cannot go wrong here. It is a classic and there is a reason for that!
