Dinner Photos: Le Bernardin

Photos from dinner on our final night in New York City. Big thanks to @NoReservations for the last-minute reservation and Chef @EricRipert for the amazing food. It was a meal we won’t forget for some time.

  1. I totally love it. What a wonderful experience, and great honor for her. I would love to do the same thing…you enjoy what you have to enjoy, and mention the things that detract from your enjoyment. I love her completely.
