Le Bernardin, a seafood restaurant located in Midtown Manhattan, is one of the best dining experiences in not only America, but the entire world. It was opened by Maguy Le Coze and Gilbert Le Coze in 1986. Check out a few of the accolades Le Bernardin has earned over the years:
In 2009, Le Bernardin was ranked the 11th best restaurant in the world in the Restaurant magazine Top 50.
Le Bernardin is just one of seven New York City restaurants awarded three Michelin stars.
Gayot ranked Le Bernardin among the Top 40 restaurants in the United States, giving it a rating of 18/20.
Le Bernardin has held a four-star rating from The New York Times longer than any other restaurant (since 1986).
In 2011, Le Bernardin closed for more than a month to undergo an extensive renovation. In its first major alteration in 25 years, Le Bernardin modernized its look, added a lounge and became greener by pursuing its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
As someone who has thought about renovating his kitchen, I can’t imagine how much this renovation cost. My jaw almost dropped to the floor when I saw what it would cost to make a few alterations to my 2,500 sq. foot kitchen (I got a free consultation through homeproimprovement.com).
Thus, to help defray the renovation cost, Le Bernardin raised the price of its 4-course menu from 115 to 120. The tasting menu also rose 5 from 140 to 145.
I have traveled through many states and eaten at many diners and dives. The state that has the favorites on my list is Missouri. They have some of the most unique diners and dives that I have ever seen. The menus are impeccable. Some of the concoctions that these chefs come up with seem off the wall but are amazing in flavor and value. Another state that has great diners and dives is Ohio. There are many local “Mom and Pop” run places with family recipes that date back over a century. Ohioans all have their own favorite place to Read the rest of this entry »

What you may not expect from a diner that is in the middle of nowhere, is that they more than likely have the best food you’ll ever eat. Diners are known for from scratch cooking and family recipes. Most would expect that diners would have bread, gravies, soups, and other items brought in already prepared. This is not the case in all diners. Most make their own breads, doughs, soups, stocks, sausages, grind their own meat, and some even make their own cheeses. There is a diner in Detroit, Michigan called Traffic Jam & Read the rest of this entry »
