PICTURES SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS. PLEASE BE PATIENT AS IT DOWNLOADS.
From the city of the melting pot and beyond, this is my bird's eye view on food. As a foodie, my choice for discussion will always be food related; either through my own preparation; or restaurants that strike me for its: 1) taste, 2) presentation, 3) value or creativity. Food is beautiful. And sharing its beauty delights me. I hope that you enjoy and learn something new each time you view! Join me!
Lunch is the best time to look for the best deals from upscale restaurants in NYC. Del Posto at 85 Tenth Avenue between 15th and 16th streets is a good deal at $29/person. You have a good choice for a prix-fixe lunch which comes with amuse bouche (3 little ones) and a surprise box with 5 miniature extra dessert treats for each of you at the table to try and a little box of delectable homemade truffles to take home.
FOR STARTER: The amuse bouche is made up of consome, mini aranccini (stuffed rice ball) and stuffed cream puff
I selected this salad as my first course
This was the first course that one of us ordered instead of a salad
This ice cream has pistachios as you can see.
Above is another dessert you can choose
This is a staple at prix-fixe lunch that is added after. There is a mini chocolate covered ice cream, warm mini bombolini, apple tart, dark chocolate truffle - which are all truly delicious!
Above is another appetizer with fried pancetta

It's actually better to eat like a King at lunch than at dinner time. You have the rest of the day to burn all those calories. This was very well worth it for the day!
