    Keith McNally's French bistro is a New York classic, packed and lively from breakfast until far into the night. It's pricey, but reliable; Balthazar may age but its standards haven't fallen.

    Balthazar is an iconic French restaurant in New York and the original brunch spot. The ambiance is atmosphere are a traditional French bistro or Cafe in Budapest. The wait staff are all immaculate

    Perfect steak frites, frisée with lardons, and salty, creamy brandade de morue. A look into one of the enormous aged mirrors that line the dining room is as likely to reveal a celebrity or two! Read more

    You won't find a breakfast sandwich on the menu, but if you ask nicely they'll make one for you on a crossaint and it's super super good!

    Perhaps the most Soho of Soho restaurants, Balthazar's goat cheese and caramelized onion tart is the ultimate gooey savory prelude to a delicious, Francophilic, comfort food filled meal.

    Amazing! Steak frites, cheeseburger, lobster risotto and beet salad were unbelievably delicious. But, having a goat cheese and caramalized onion tart is the greatest favor that you can do yourself.

    NY. Whether you are grabbing a croissant to go or dining in the restaurant, this is one of our go-to spots. Balthazar is a chic space for a business lunch & intimate enough for a personal dinner, too.

    Le Balthazar is amazing to see and packs delicious flavor. The desserts are delicious as well I would recommend the mango cheesecake, creme brûlée, and Profiteroles. You will enjoy every moment there!

    Order one of their burgers, the coq au vin, or the steak frites, and pair it with either a beer or a selection from their ample wine list. Then sit back and enjoy. Read more

    Bake 7.1: French bistro style restaurant in SOHO which has a very good bakery/patisserie attached. Even if you don't eat at Balthazars, go inside and check out the dining room which is pretty sweet. Read more

    The peppered steak is coated in dense, charred peppery loveliness. The burger with blue cheese isn't bad either. Reservations can be tricky but They tend to keep a few tables spare for walk-ins.

    I went on a Wednesday morning and it was full of important-looking business-types having their power breakfasts. I went on a Thursday night and it was full of tourists. Choose wisely.

    The meat, the bun, the whole burger was a wow experience. I'd also recommend the roasted beet salad as a starter. The whole menu looked delicious but you can't fit it all!

    We’d follow that pain au chocolat anywhere, along with oysters, steak frites and the feeling that we’ve somehow accidentally teleported to the chicest brasserie in Paris.

    Treat yourself to brunch at Balthazar, order a French 75 and seafood tower and start your day off right. This place gets crowded. Reservations are a must, unless you want to try your luck at the bar!

    From what I gather, one of the last places east of Broadway still serving bernaise sauce w/ their steak frites. Also one of the few spots I've found that stocks Bruichladdich (scotch). Get both.
