New York, NY 10019
Village Voice's Description
Quite frankly, La Silhouette isn't cool. Its ugly stretch of West 53rd Street does little to attract scenesters. Salt and pepper are both seasonings here and the most common hair color. The décor is 1990s chic. But don't judge too soon, for the food can't be called outdated in the least. Take comfort in a juicy roast chicken entrée escorted by Brussels sprouts and porcini marmalade while a waiter serves you one of three types of warm bread. Or try the excellently prepared baked halibut paired with caramelized cauliflower purée and capers. Fine dining like this doesn't come cheap, but fortunately a $38 early bird prix-fixe helps those who aren't on expense account budgets.
Tips from foursquare
Taste La Silhouette’s “Bloody Hell,” a peppercorn-and-mustard-seed-laced number named after the Brits' favorite term for expressing frustration.
Try the Soft poached agg - ANAZING!!!! And, I am not screaming. Please try this place. (via @Foodspotting)
Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!!! Don't trust me?? Go tonight and you will see that I'm not wrong.
Mm French toast and pancakes!!!
La Silhouette’s unassuming interior—and tiny bar—are signs of confidence. The haute French cooking has won raves for executive chef Matthew Tropeano.
