NYC – 7/13/14 – Cherche Midi

Today’s lesson – always have a back-up plan. We intended to have dinner at Root & Bone but when I arrived a few minutes before opening they were in the midst of a basement plumbing crisis and dumping buckets and buckets of water into the street. Consequently no walk-ins. Janine Booth couldn’t have been more lovely and I will try again soon. On to Cerche Midi. It was a more appropriate pre-Bastille Day spot anyway! Overall solid, not earth shattering, but what I expect from Keith McNally.
