Le Bernardin Gets Its Four Stars Renewed Yet Again


Le Bernardin’s four-star rating in The New York Times has been confirmed every time the restaurant has been assessed, from 1986, when it opened, through 2005,” writes Times critic Pete Wells. “Why wait to say it: today I fall in line, happily, with my predecessors.” Wells says that the newly remodeled restaurant with its sleek lounge, and chef Eric Ripert’s constantly refreshed seafood menu moves ever forward, “like a fish.” [NYT]
