I'm Back/Jean Claude Photo Study

by Marisa Olsen in ,


Eeks. I'm back. I know it's been over a year. Sigh. What can I say? I've been busy? My apologies to my readers who are few and far between. But I swear I've been thinking of you! Now that we got that out of the way, shall we continue onto the important things in life? Food.

Let me start off with a small photo study of a French restaurant in SoHo called Jean Claude. My friend Emily recommended it for my fiance's birthday and it was a great pick. It's cash only, but they have a three course prix fixe from 6-7:30PM Monday through Thursday for $25. 

They also have reasonable wines. Below are four pictures of our dishes: Spiced Squid with coriander vinaigrette, organic mixed greens; basil oil, Pan-seared foie gras with squash (sorry this dish is no longer on the menu, shame), Sautéed Skate Served with couscous, portobello mushroom, Italian capers and balsamic vinaigrette, and Hanger Steak with gratin dauphinois, sauteed zucchini, thyme and red wine shallot sauce.
