Casimir – NYC

We went here for dinner on New Year's Eve and I think it was the perfect choice. It's a wonderful French bistro in the East Village that is very reasonably priced. Everyone at our table raved about their meal and having the honor of trying many of the dishes, i'd have to agree that they were delicious indeed. As per usual I had trouble deciding what to order but finally settled on the Seared Sea Scallops with herb salad, leeks and lemon vinaigrette to start. 

My main was a marvelous Dried Cherry Glazed Duck Breast with the most enjoyable mashed potatoes i've ever had and green beans. One of the other dishes I stole a bite from was the Braised Lamb Shank with porcini mushrooms, risotto and broccoli rabe. This was also my second choice to the duck and was very nice. We also had a wonderful deep, French red wine with our meal, Château du Galoupet from les Côtes de Provence area. The service was exceptional considering how busy they were and contrary to some reviews i've seen of the restaurant. Maybe we were just having a lucky night but I don't think so. Apps range from $12 to $15 and mains from $18 to $28.
