Fodor's Expert Review Le Bernardin

$$$$ Midtown West Seafood Fodor's Choice

Head into the serene, teak-panel dining room at this trendsetting French seafood restaurant, and let chef Eric Ripert work his magic with anything that swims—at times preferring not to cook it at all. Deceptively simple dishes such as poached lobster in rich coconut-ginger soup or crispy spiced black bass in a Peking duck bouillon are typical of his style. It's widely agreed that there's no beating Le Bernardin for thrilling cuisine, seafood or otherwise, coupled with some of the finest desserts in town and a wine list as deep as the Atlantic. It's prix-fixe only, and there are non-fish options (pasta and meat) available on request.
