I too was recently perusing NYC. The best dining experience was at Les Halles Brasserie, where Anthony Bourdain used to cook. I love Bourdain and own the Les Halles cookbook, so I figured why not check it out. I expected the atmosphere to be kind of a tourist destination for Bourdain television fans, but this was not the case. His name wasn’t really anywhere to be found in the restaurant. We were seated right near the bar area which was extremely busy, but didn’t make for an unpleasant experience. I ended up ordering the “chef’s cut” for the day, which was filet mignon off the bone served with “truffle fries”. I also got a cup of french onion soup that about brought me to my knees. The beef was by far the best I’ve ever had. My mother had the same thing and she agreed. It was also served on a cool wooden cutting board instead of a regular plate. Definitely one of the better restaurants I’ve been to. I’d definitely recommend checking it out if you haven’t already next time you’re in the city.
NIce choice, Brett. Sophisticated taste all around! Nothing like an amazing onion soup to set the bar. Keep eating great grub. Thanks for stopping by OTK, too!
