Definitely get Dessert!
Picholine (French)- 35 West 64th Street, (NYC) This Restaurant, while not my favorite French Restaurant, is still very worthy of a visit. It is very beautiful, and Formal. The food is very SOLID! Service is good, and the attention to detail is all around well done. The Foie Gras is very delicious, the scallops were very nicely cooked. The Lamb is great! Give the place a shot!
