37 Canal St, New York, NY 10002
We are officially dubbing Brigitte as the cutest date spot in Lower Manhattan. With quaint French café energy and romantic dimmed lighting, you should probably book your Valentine's Day dinner here ASAP. The food was also on point and a nice change of pace from my usual sushi and pasta regimen.
What to order:
Flourless Socca Chickpea Crepes & Eggplant Ezme Salsa
Not only was this gluten-free and vegan, but the crepe tasted sooo buttery and flaky and if you love eggplant you'll love this.
Passion Fruit & Lemon Scallop Céviche, Yuka, Plantain Chips & Basil Oil
Another g-free option and a good choice if you're trying to eat light with fresh ingredients.
Tomato & Gruyère Tart Thyme, Dijon Mustard & Poppy Seed Crust
This is a 100% vegetarian option, and coming from the girl who order "meat lovers pie" from Dominos at 2am, this tart is my new favorite appetizer.
Whole Shrimp & Brandy Fried Basil & Green Onion
If you like working for your food, order this.
Gnocchi à la Parisienne
Moment of silence for these massive sweet potato Gnocci smothered in layers of French cheese.
New Zealand Lamb Chops Tarragon Dijon & Grilled Leeks
Lamb is one of those things you either love or hate. If you love, get these.
