I recently returned to Sel et Poivre, a gorgeous Upper East Side French restaurant I first visited two years ago. Looking back at my post from back then, it seems like the main thing that has changed is my beard has gotten longer. You can read that post for an overview of the restaurant.
Sadly I narrowly missed their Game Festival which runs from Mid-February to Mid-March and involves eating all sort of exotic meats like antelope and boar. Next year. Fortunately there were still numerous other French classics to feast on and I certainly didn’t leave disappointed. Here’s a look at what came out:
Fish Soup I always like dishes where you get to play with the food. The soup comes with a baguette, roue sauce and swiss cheese. The play is to put the cheese and sauce on your baguette and float it like a fishing boat (in fish soup, get it?). It’s a surprising amount of fun for a serious restaurant but also quite delicious.
Note: I was invited as a guest of the establishment and received a complimentary meal. This was not in exchange for a positive review and opinions expressed are my own.
