If you find yourself on the Upper East Side craving French fare, look no further than Sel et Poivre. Owner/Chef Christian Schienle prepares classic French bistro dishes with a refined, updated flair.
Our first dish that came out was celery root remoulade with red beets. It was great to cleanse our appetite. Next, came out Red Pepper Bisque that didn’t have any cream in it. It was full of flavor, I really loved it!
Next came out entrees to try. Out of all we tried, my two favorites were the Duck a L’orange with wild rice and the Aged New York Sirloin with their famous Poivre Sauce. They both were cooked to perfection, I was in heaven. Our dishes came served with boiled potatoes and spinach and those did not disappoint either. Last, dessert came out, we tasted the chocolate lava cake and creme brulee. I loved the chocolate lava cake. It was delish!
They have a great wine selection and the food is great, I’d highly recommend it!
