#FRENCH - Cherche de Midi
At the corner of Bowery and Houston Street is a restaurant owned by the same restauranteur of Balthazar in SoHo. This area is called NoHo.
SoHo is supposed to be short for South of Houston Street and NoHo is North ofHouston Street. But go figure why they consider this to be NoHo area.
Anyway, middle of the week lunch is the best time to get a table and just walk-in.
POT DE FROMAGE parmesan custard with anchovy butter toast. I love the toast and this cheese dish.
We also had ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST with baby leeks, black trumpets and gnocchi - actually I do 'to remember seeing the gnocchi. I saw arugula salad surrounding the grilled chicken.
The dessert was worth the calories. It wasn't very sweet:
