Welcome to our new photo series, where Eater photographer Daniel Krieger visits some of the city's storied restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. For our latest installment, we visit Le Bernardin at 12 p.m.
Midtown: Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin on West 51st St. is widely considered to be one of the best, if not the best, seafood restaurants in Manhattan. It has earned four stars from the Times, three from Michelin, and praise from about every other major rag and critic in the city. Man knows what he's doing. And so does his team of chefs, headed up by Chef de Cuisine Chris Muller.
While Le Bernardin is no question a choice spot to drop serious money on dinner, the midtown business lunch crowd is the real scene to see here. Thus, we observe Ripert's seafood palace throughout the lunch service, starting with this gallery of the kitchen. Stay tuned to see the dining room.
