    Le Rivage: Fine French Cuisine, decently priced, Midtown

    Le Rivage was, in my opinion, a fine find in the mid-town theater district of NYC. The interior was classy and understated, the service efficient, and the food well-prepared and nicely-presented. Le Rivage has an extensive and variable Prix Fix menu. Virtually everything on their menu can find its way onto the economical prix fix plan, too, with only an occasional supplement for you escargot lovers.

    My wife and I were dining at Le Rivage on our last night in NYC, and were headed out to see "Movin Out" at the Richard Rodgers Theater nearby. The waiter at Le Rivage was made aware of our theater date, and she did an excellent job of keeping things moving while avoiding that rushed feeling.

    The wine list at Le Rivage was also quite good, and featured quite a few mid-priced items of excellent quality, at least in my opinion. I'm no Napa Valley expert, but I generally can sniff out a good red. : )

    Favorite Dish: Everything was very, very good. Let me just list a few items from their menu... (many more, folks....I'm limited by space)

    Sardines a l'Huile
    Pate Maison
    Lobster Bisque (old style without dairy)
    Hareng Marine, Bismark Herring
    with Onion vinaigrette

    Steak with Bordelaise Sauce
    Filet de Sole Meuniere
    Sole Bonne Femme
    Veal Scallopine with Madeira Wine Sauce
    Crevettes Maison (Shrimp with onions,
    mushrooms and a wine
    Coq au Vin
    Les Grenouilles (Frog Legs sauteed in garlic)
    Duck a l'Orange
    La Lotte Hormardine (Monkfish sauteed with
    lobster sauce)

    And for dessert, there were many choices...
    BUT..... the Peche Melba was superb.
