Best Deal in Tribeca – Bâtard, New York City

Bâtard NYC Dining Room

Retaining their Michelin star for 2016, Bâtard is one of the best deals in New York City with 2 courses for $55, 3 courses for $69, or 4 courses for $79. The warm golden lighting splashed on the lovely textured wallpaper surrounds an upbeat and bustling dining room with an unpretentious air.

My favorite dish of the night was the beautifully plump and delicately textured sea scallops, a hint of sweetness from vanilla, a dash of savory herbs served with kale and rich potato mousseline.

The chef is Austrian Markus Glocker, so the pork schnitzel was a must-try. The breading was crispy without being greasy and the pork was tender and paired well with the creamy potato salad, crunchy cucumber, lingonberry, and sea buckthorn.

There wasn’t much room after the rich starter and entrée so the Stone Fruit Kuchen was a “lighter” dessert option with coriander and two dollops of crème fraîche ice cream

My only complaint, the air conditioning was too cold – it was literally distracting. Otherwise, Bâtard is a great bargain (for NYC and Michelin Star restaurants) with a fun atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food.
