Restaurant Review: Chez Lucienne (Harlem).

Bonjour, on Tuesday October 20, 2009 I had the pleasure of being invited to a tasting at a French Bistro by the name of Chez Lucienne in Harlem, NY. I am no stranger to French restaurants being that I am from Louisiana. I was ready to critique. For the evening I was in the company of a group of hand selected bloggers that all reside in New York City.

Upon entering the dimly lit restaurant I was impressed. The decor was very authentic to its French character. Time for the food!

Appetizer: I had the Saumon Fume Fait Maison (Smoked Salmon with a Vodka cream). Let me just say it was like a party in my mouth.
Entree: I had the Hamburger Chez Lucienne (Kobe beef topped with mushrooms and brie, served with homemade fries). I ordered my beef well-done however the beef was so tender! The brie was a great compliment to the "burger" which wasn't your typical burger because it had no bun. Nonetheless it was terrific! Not to mention the fries were so light. I didn't feel as if I was eating the greasy fries you may find at many fast food restaurants.

Desert: I had the Tarte Tatin et Crème Fraiche (Warm apple tart with cream fraiche). I must say when I received this dish it wasn't what I though it would be, but after tasting the apple tart I fell in love. Unlike a apple pie where it's sweetened this apple tart remained true to its apple flavor. This is a great alternative to my favorite desert, which is apple pie.

In part I must say that chef, Thomas Obaton did a wonderful job on presentation of the food as well as taste. Also, the wait staff was very courteous and polite. I had a great time mingling with my fellow bloggers and partaking in great food. Make sure you check out Chez Lucienne!
