Once inside the door of Balthazar, you will leave SoHo behind and be magically transported inside a Parisian brasserie off of Boulevard Saint Germain, with eager waiters all dressed in black and white ready to serve you.
From eight in the morning, New Yorkers settle onto the red benches to enjoy a traditional breakfast with croissants made in house, perfect eggs Benedict with the yolk still runny, or tasty French toast covered with maple syrup and mixed berries. On the lunch menu: duck confit, escargots in garlic butter, chicken Normandy and bouillabaisse, unless you prefer the freshly prepared seafood platter. And save a little room for dessert: try the irresistible apple Tarte Tatin, the crème brûlée or the sumptuous homemade chocolate profiteroles.
On weekends, have patience and remember to book ahead to get in for brunch at Balthazar. You won't be disappointed.
