New York City: Bar Boulud

So night 2 in New York City needed to be somewhere laid back after an all day shopping excursion to Woodbury Commons!  I booked Bar Boulud for this night since the restaurant was only 8 blocks away from where we were staying leaving us plenty of time to have a glass of wine and chill before dinner.  I’ve heard a lot about Daniel Boulud and his restaurants so what a perfect opportunity we had to go this time around.  The long and narrow restaurant was packed, even at 10pm – our reservation time.  The menu is very French bistro, making my mouth water – can you tell I miss France dearly 🙂  One of my favourite things to eat….charcuterie was on the menu!  With three different pates, pickled carrots, coleslaw, ham, salami and grainy mustard – how could I resist.  It was delicious, especially the pickled carrots!!!  Something I didn’t expect.  But the best dishes of the night have to go to dessert – nothing is better than French inspired desserts.  Macaroons, madeleines, truffles and tarts, oh my!

My dessert - a fig and pineapple tart.  A thought the combination weird when I read it but surprisingly, it was a good combination!
