My Favorite NYC Moments #1: Villard Michel Richard


Hands down the best dining experience of our trip.

We had dinner at Villard Michel Richard at the New York Place, where we stayed. I selected the Frix Fixe menu, reasonably priced at $48. It started with this refreshing Yellow Tomato Gazpacho with Burrata which was to die for.  I seriously wanted to order another one because I couldn’t get enough.


And it was followed by perfectly seared Scallops with English peas, radish, carrot-ginger sauce. I seldom order scallops but these were a winner.


Maya had a plate of juicy Filet Mignon.


And ended with Celebration Cake.

I heart you, NYC, and thanks for another amazing visit.  I’ll be back again real soon.
