We went to Le Bernardin with the best expectation but it surprised us. We choose the Chef Menu with wine. The tartare with osetra caviar drinking a glas of Krug champagne wow! Wow!

Dishes here look so easy on the eye . Like nothing has been done to the produce . But it was pure craftmanship being able to do that . Once you taste it , you know that many hours went into your plate.
