If you are in the market for French fine dining, Balthazar is just the place. It is located in the heart of Soho and the creation of renowned restaurateur Keith McNally. Balthazar which takes on the appearance of a brasserie, has a charming atmosphere which fuses the elegance of Paris with the edge of New York. The restaurant was packed even for an early dinner and we waited in anticipation for our orders. We got the shrimp risotto as an appetizer which was better than any Risotto I had in Italy.

The deserts we had were so delicious I questioned whether or not there might be some addictive substance which was the secret ingredient. The most amazing choice we made were the profiteroles.

The next time you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, try Balthazar!
