The Low Down


Know Before You Go: In addition to a $40 lunch, there are two tasting menus: a $135 "Le Bernardin" menu and an eight course chef's menu for $180 ($320 with wine parings).

Know Before You Go: Just because it's fish and very light, don't assume that it isn't filling (or fattening).

What to Drink: Sommelier Aldo Sohm is the best in the business and has the awards to prove it. Drink whatever he tells you to.

Fun Fact: Despite Le Bernardin's reputation as a seafood house, the kobe-and-escolar surf and turf is one of the most popular dishes on the menu.
