Le Train Bleu (New York)

So far the best food experience during my stay in New York. As the name suggests it, the restaurant looks like a restaurant carriage. I loved it because the food was absolutely delicious and the waiter was so charming. 

I decided to go for the grilled salmon. It was served with salad, asparagus, beetroots and potatoes. As a side dish I had sautéed spinach.

I really didn't want to have dessert because I was really full after the main course. But since I wanted to hang around a bit longer, yes, the waiter was that darling, I went and ordered a crème brûlée. At the end, he offered me the dessert (I didn't have to pay for it) because according to him I had to sit next to the noisy kitchen (which had not been an issue for me - I had chosen that table) and he wanted to make up for that. I didn't know what to say; that was such a sweet gesture. If only all waiters could be this attentive and friendly...
