BLT Fish Gives New York A Drink Break on Tax Day, April 15

I did not spend my day by the sea, but there sure is plenty of fish in my writing today from Chocolate Fish Fry earlier to BLT Fish right now. It was not planned.

This BLT Fish does not have a BLT Sandwich on its dinner menu. All Entrees are from the fish and seafood department except for Filet Mignon.

BLT stands for Bistro Laurent Tourondel and is located in the Flatiron District.

Appetizers below give you a feel for the place.

Raw Hamachi / Chive Blossoms / Soy Citrus 18
Arugula / Fennel / Artichokes / Pecorino 12
Yellowfin Tuna Tartare / Cucumber / Fresh Wasabi / Spicy Yuzu Dressing 18
Tiger Shrimp a la Plancha / Hearts of Palm / Thai Basil 16
Grilled Portuguese Octopus / Chickpeas / Roasted Red Peppers 17
Ricotta Gnudi / Seared Rock Shrimp / Morels / Spring Peas 18

In a spirit of shared sacrifice "on April 15th, BLT Restaurants across the nation help take the stress out of Tax Day with half off of all alcoholic beverages. All cocktails, beer, wines by the glass and bottles of wine will be sold at 50% off all day long!."


As I was wrapping up this piece I learned that BLT has lost its LT as LA Times announced Chef Laurent Tourondel leaves BLT Restaurant Group (Daily Dish, March 1).

I found my way to this restaurant thanks to my friends at Champagne Tarlant whose Zero Champagne, a sugar free Brut Nature is ready for the taking at BLT Fish.

Could be the prefect antidote on Tax Day, especially at 50% off.

Thankfully for us he did, here's what came out of it. Q: Henri, did your interest in Caramels grow in tandem with your love for Chocolate? My parents were pastry chefs . I spent...

You might remember the fellow who was ready to give his empire for a horse. I am not ready to trade my blog for a beer. I really don't drink beer that much except for micro brews in the summer. Getting back to my story of beer, horses, emperors and love for sale takes us to a roomful of Jacques. Where you ever caught red handed singing Frere Jacques? Are singers Jacques Brel or Jacques...
