I met my friend Ashley for lunch at Orsay (Lexington & 75th) before leaving for Dubai. It was a rainy, dreary day but eating a great Nicoise salad at this beautiful Parisian bistro brightened the entire day. After lunch, I had to go wait in line at the post office and pick up last-minute travel items at Duane Reade. But there's nothing quite like a great New York lunch with a friend!
Tip: Orsay is a sister restaurant to a New York institution that closed, La Goulue. But, since many people have asked, La Goulue's famous cheese souffle is being served at Orsay during lunch Monday-Friday.
