The Cafe at Le Cirque
Posted by shauna on 05/27/2008
I had never been to Le Cirque before and I have to admit that I was a little intimidated. I sat in the cafe area which is a little more casual. I was expecting a lot and I was quite surprised...I was greeted right away by a very pleasant and friendly girl. She was very knowledgeable about the food and recommended right away a wine pairing for what I ordered. I had the foie gras ravioli which I had read about in the New York Times, it was spectacular. After her suggestion I tried the Jon Dory which was equally as good. I decided to go with her recommendation for dessert, the chocolate souffle and it was the best I've ever had. My experience exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be a regular from now on. If you are looking for a more casual atmosphere but still want high quality food, I highly recommend the Le Cirque cafe. The friendly, charming service which I received was definitely a surprise, for I had never expected it from Le Cirque.

Ran across this place randomly, just wanted a mini burger, split the one dish with a friend, served very nicely (split one dish, came out as two, each with our own serving of fries and salad), the bread is good especially the olive bread, staff was very attentive, food was really tasty, meat was really well seasoned and the fries were just how i like them (skinny and a bit crunchy) - def will be coming back

Lunch for my family was not good. The entrees were salty and when asked how the meat was to be cooked, we said well done - it came raw. After returning it, the dish came back medium. This is not acceptable. If it was not for my daughter's birthday, I would have demanded a change. II went to the original Le Cirque back in the 80's and it was a different place then. I will not recommend this place for anyone, even though it is the Bloomberg builidng with all its glitz and glamour.
