Lafayette

New version of Balthazar in city “Lafayette”

Lafayette         380 Lafayette ( corner of Great John St ) NYC

This restaurant opened this year on Lafayette Street yet the place already has an old school classic New York restaurant feel.  Lafayette is very much a similar idea to Balthazar in Soho. The menu is french bistro and they even have a bakery shop inside of the restaurant like at Balthazar. I came here for dinner three times now and I found more appetizers that I wanted to order than from the entree menu. Here are my top three appetizer picks. Grilled Mediterranean Octopus, Scallop Crudo, Beef Tartar. I had the lamb chop and duck breast from entree, and lamb with couscous was fantastic. Between the two pastas I had, Spaghetti Nicoise was so yummy. If you are group of three~four people then you should definitely share their salad. The salad’s portion is really big and it’s almost too big for two people to share. New York restaurant’s trend change every two years, but I say this place is going to stay for a long time. I recommend you to come here for any night of the week with friends and parents, small party of two to group birthday dinner.
