New York City is going through an unprecedented high-end real estate boom. Finding an apartment in New York that sells for under a million dollars is becoming a challenge. Renting an apartment for less than $3,000 a month is also wishful thinking. Even New York restaurants are going through a major price increase. Finding a restaurant that is considered a moderately priced eatery is another challenge, but it’s not an impossibility. The restaurant scene in New York City is as diverse as its population. Every type of palate is satisfied in New York. It just takes money to satisfy the people with discerning palates, according to food critics. One of the top restaurants in New York that satisfied people every time they eat there is Le Bernardin located at 155 W. 51st Street in Midtown.
Le Bernardin opened its doors 36 years ago after enjoying success in Paris. In Paris, Le Bernardin was known for its fresh fish entrees and the New York location has the same reputation. The complicated but delicate sauces prepared by Chef Eric Ripert make each seafood entry an exciting gastronomic adventure. The menu is Prix fix, and it is organized by food preparation. The categories are almost raw, barely touched, lightly cooked and so on. The private room is a great event area. It has a private entrance and is elegantly decorated.
Not everyone enjoys the hustle and bustle of Midtown and the theater district, but the people that do usually put La Grenouille on their future to-do list. La Grenouille has been serving incredible food since 1962. It’s an old school restaurant that appeals to the discerning folks that enjoy the arts and a menu that is filled with decadent French inspired choices. La Grenouille is known for its floral table arrangements as well as the fancy private events that only the elite can attend. Lunch is a bargain at La Grenouille. The $38 Prix fix price is hard to beat in a city where two drinks can cost that much.
But If a private event is what is needed in New York, there’s only one restaurant that most locals pick. That restaurant is Tarallucci e Vino, Union Square. Tarallucci e Vino has three other locations. One is on Columbus Ave on the Upper West Side. Another is in the East Village, and one is in the Copper-Hewitt location in the Smithsonian Design Museum. All locations offer excellent private events. But the Italian-style wine bar and restaurant is also known for great food at great prices. Just like the real estate market, the restaurant market has gone crazy when it comes to price, but Tarallucci e Vino has managed to keep their prices realistic. And the private events are also reasonable. Food critics agree that Tarallucci e Vino offers the best private venues in the city, especially if the menu includes Italian cuisine.
Tarallucci e Vino gets a lot of attention in New York City, and the four locations deserve the rave reviews they receive from clients that book events or just come and dine at one of the locations.
