Balthazar: "French Bistro" Balthazar Tip by ForestqueenNYC
Balthazar, New York City: 23 reviews and 15 photos
This is my favorite place to eat*. I love the atmosphere and the food, although I always order the same thing.
They say you need reservations weeks in advance, but I have always walked in on the spur of the moment and have been seated, if not immediately, within a half an hour. Of course, I don't go at the height of the lunch or dinner hour.
There is a very nice bar where you can wait and have a glass of wine.
Dress for Sunday brunch is casual.

*SEE ALSO MY REVIEW ON MY SECOND FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN NYC ON MY FLUSHING AND FOREST HILLS PAGES. The restaurant is Dirty Pierre's.
Favorite Dish: I almost always order the goat cheese tarte and a glass of wine. It is not a lot of food, but it gives me room to have the Pavlova for desert. If you want hartier fare, you might try the macaroni and cheese. My brother-in-law thinks it is the best he has ever eaten. It's too rich for me. My sister likes the cheese plate. The liver and onions were a big disappointment.
Depending on what you order, Balthazar may be considered average or expensive. Wine and desert will greatly add to the expense.
