The New York Times says, “Bistro Vendôme is an unapologetic, undemanding French bistro that seeks to please its affluent neighbors on the Upper East Side and largely succeeds.” After 15 years at Bistro Jubilee, husband and wife team owners, Pascal and Virginie Petiteau opened up the wildly successful Bistro Vendôme. Michelin Guide recommended stating, “Bistro Vendôme brings a breath of fresh air to Sutton Place with this sunny and quaint multi-level townhouse…bright and airy (with outdoor terrace) this classic New York restaurant nails the European bistro in its look and feel. While neighborhood denizens with their dashing beaus may crowd the place…the kitchen delivers classics exactly as they were conceived.” Zagat (22 rated) state’s,” the locals gather at this upscale bistro for French fare dispatched by Gallic-accented staffers who are as charming as the tri-level townhouse setting, it’s a neighborhood jewel.” At “Bistro Vendôme, their goal is to offer classic French recipes, some original, some with a modern twist so their guests fall in love with French cuisine all over again!” We start with a choice of chilled green pea soup, endive salad with blue cheese, apples & walnuts or escargot, then we choose cold poached salmon with ratatouille, asparagus, cucumber-dill sauce or chicken ballotine with orzo and porcini sauce or crispy duck confit with Lyonnaise potatoes & truffle jus. We finish our meal with profiteroles with hot chocolate sauce and toasted almonds or crème brulée with Grand Marnier.
