The brainchild of chef and owner Terrance Brennan, Picholine has been described by a host of publications as New York’s most romantic dining establishment. With a backdrop of lilac decor, sweeping curtains and crystal chandeliers, one can’t fail to see why, but the romance is as much in the food creations, as it is the restaurant atmosphere. Menu preludes include Warm Maine Lobster with vanilla and endives, Tuna Napoleon and Sea Urchin Pannacotta, while mains take the taste experience to new heights with Moroccan inspired Elysian Fields Lamb or Sea Scallop Rossini. Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mousse, alongside Warm Caramel Brioche with apple confit may make dessert decisions a little tricky.
