As were were close to Grand Central Terminal and were not that thrilled about the choices in the food court there, we decided to go to Pershing Square, a restaurant that reminded me of a brasserie because of its decor. It was definitely beautiful, with lots of light thanks to the large windows.
Food wise, they are apparently known for their breakfast, but what I wanted to try was their lobster roll that looked spectacular. Unfortunately, it felt short in delivering, mainly because the roll made it heavy, so heavy. There was a lot of lobster, but also lots of mayo...
It was served with delicious homemade potato chips, cole slaw and avocado, as well as pickles.
Jodi got the seared tuna Nicoise salad that was superb. First of all, the presentation was beautiful, looking like a deconstructed Nicoise in a way, although the french beans, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes were housed in the salad shaped like a nest. Then, the tuna was delicious, perfectly seared. I definitely recommend this dish.
Even if I did not like the lobster roll at Pershing Square, I would not mind going back there and trying some other dishes like the braised short ribs melt or their filet mignon au poivre.
