My Favorite NYC Moments #5: Lunch at Balthazar

I like Balthazar so much that I make an effort to dine here every time I’m in the city.  It’s the next best thing to Paris.

Is there anything more beautiful than burnt cheese on top of French Onion Gratinee? I didn’t think so either.

Maya ordered Brandade de Moure, salt cod and potato puree, enjoyed by smearing on crusty baguette slices. It’s light and not fishy at all.

Moules and Frites (Mussels and Fries) for Maya.

Balthazar Salad for me. I didn’t care too much for this. The truffle oil the salad was tossed in was way too strong for me!
