Tastes of New York’s Classic Restaurants Boucherie with My Partner

Polished French restaurants in expansive art nouveau-style spaces.

New York, N.Y. As someone who dedicates a significant amount of time to humanitarian efforts in some of the world’s most impoverished regions, it’s a rare but cherished opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. My partner, Bix Luce, and I recently indulged in such an experience at Boucherie in New York City. Known for his appreciation of fine cuisine, Bix was particularly excited about this culinary adventure, and our evenings exceeded all expectations.

La Grande Boucherie

With a dazzling dining gallery featuring 40′ glass ceilings, this one-of-a-kind brasserie is built in the tradition of the Belle Epoque, inspired by elegant and ornamental Art Nouveau style. The menu features French classics and timeless bistro favorites, with a focus on prime cuts and an in-house meat program.

Boucherie West Village

Nestled in the heart of the West Village, this Boucherie boasts a beautiful location that combines the charm of a French bistro with the bustling energy of New York City. The restaurant’s exterior, with its inviting facade and classic Parisian awnings, sets the stage for the delightful experience that awaits inside. Upon entering, we were greeted by a warm and elegant ambiance that felt both luxurious and welcoming. The décor, with its rich wood paneling, vintage posters, and soft lighting, created a cozy yet sophisticated atmosphere that immediately put us at ease.

Boucherie Union Square

The wait staff at Boucherie on Union Square deserves special mention for their exceptional service. From the moment we were seated, we felt genuinely cared for. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive, offering insightful recommendations and ensuring that every aspect of our meal was perfect. Their knowledge of the menu and wine list was impressive, and their friendly demeanor added a personal touch to our dining experience.

Now, onto the highlight of the evening: the food. Boucherie’s menu is a celebration of classic French cuisine, and every dish we sampled was a testament to the chef’s skill and dedication to quality.

We started with the Escargots de Bourgogne, which were tender and flavorful, bathed in a rich garlic parsley butter. For our main courses, Bix opted for the Duck à l’Orange, while I chose the Filet Mignon au Poivre. The duck was perfectly cooked, with a crisp skin and succulent meat, complemented by a tangy orange sauce that balanced the dish beautifully. My filet mignon was equally impressive, cooked to a perfect medium-rare and accompanied by a creamy peppercorn sauce that added a delightful kick.

No meal at Boucherie would be complete without dessert. We shared the Tarte Tatin, a classic French apple tart, which was beautifully caramelized and served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. It was the perfect ending to a truly memorable meal.

Our experience at Boucherie was nothing short of spectacular. The combination of a beautiful location, elegant ambiance, considerate wait staff, and delicious food made for an unforgettable evening. It’s a reminder that while our work in humanitarian efforts is crucial, it’s also important to take time to enjoy life’s pleasures and create cherished memories with loved ones.
