10 Jun

There are many fantastic restaurants in New York. On a recent visit, I ate at La Grenouille in Midtown. It’s an authentic French restaurant in Midtown.The food and the atmosphere were superb. The decor is awash in pink with flowers galore. Just the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine with fine food.
