Blue on Blue at Bouley

S and I forewent date night last night. The poor boy was at home sick on the one day he has off that I don't each year. Such bad luck. Since he is much better today, we kept our lunch reservations at a place that has been on my NYC restaurant bucket list for ages: Bouley.

Like other Michelin-starred restaurants in town, Bouley serves a great lunch option for a fraction of what it would cost for dinner. Though Bouley stands out from the rest by extending the special lunch offering beyond the weekday to Saturdays - something I wasn't aware of till recently either!

It was a five-course tasting, which meant that between us two, we had over 15 different dishes including the various amuse bouches, palette-cleansers and petit fours. As expected, we were extremely full by the end of it. Great deal for $55+ without a doubt - especially since a lot of what we ate also appears on the more expensive dinner menu! Next time though, I'd ask to be seated in the much prettier upstairs dining room as opposed to the dimly lit downstairs section (perhaps they assumed we wanted a more romantic experience?) 

Anyway, NYC is finally experiencing the first signs of Spring. I was excited to be out sans tights today:
Zara coat, J Crew dress, Anthropologie Parted Curtain Collar necklace (sim here), Chanel navy flap bag, Miu Miu sunglasses (in red here and in pink here), Lanvin pumps

Have a great Saturday!


  1. Mom, Bouley sounds delicious! Maybe I'll check it out for lunch the next time I'm in NYC. But there's always so little time, so many places to eat. :)

    Love the blue and purple combo and jealous of the bare legs! It's coming, but it'll be a while yet in Toronto, I think.

  2. Your lunch sounds like it was absolutely diving!
    Glad to see the J.Crew dress made it's debut :)

  3. Wow- I love this dress on you, and of course the cool sparkly details. You look fabulous in blues!
    And my 'bouche' could really use some 'amuse' right now- so hungry...

  4. Gorgeous! The pink heels are the perfect pop with your blue tones. :)
