Le Bernadin NY

Ne-am facut rezervare cu 1 luna inainte si ne-am pregatit pentru o seara de exceptie. Restaurantul newyorkez este recunoscut pentru meniul de peste/frantuzesc/fusion. Barbatii trebuie sa poarte haina, ceea ce l-a scos din pepeni pe Andrei care bombanea de zor (“voi sunteti in maieuri si eu tb sa mor de cald cu haina asta”) pana cand hostessa i-a spus pe frumosul grai romanesc “stiti, o purtati pana la masa si acolo o asezati pe scaun” si i-a dat una din dotare. O chema Ioana si era din Galati. A fost foarte fericita ca are clienti “de acasa”.

Am ales (ca de obicei) tasting menu, fiecare altul ca sa vedem si gustam cat mai multe, si a inceput festinul.
