New York NY 10019
Think Le Bernardin and you think accolades: Michelin, The New York Times, James Beard Foundation (plus a recent entry into the AAA Five Diamond club). A super sleek renovation in 2011 gave it more than a fresh coat of paint; it livened up the entire space, and a leather-clad lounge replaced a formerly sleepy bar. This iconic restaurant isn’t going anywhere any time soon, and if cooking fish well is an art, then chef Eric Ripert is a Michelangelo; his contemporary French touch has led some to call his creations — among them thinly shaved geoduck with osetra caviar and wasabi-citrus mousseline and poached skate and warm oysters, Brussels sprouts-bacon mignonette, and Dijon mustard sherry emulsion — the world's best seafood. — Arthur Bovino

“The fish is the star” is the motto at chef Eric Ripert’s acclaimed seafood spot.
The food and the service are brilliantly executed. Also, we love details like how the sauces arrive separately from the main courses, so we can decide how much to add.
