Step off Lexington Avenue into the serene, family-run French bistro, Sel et Poivre. Chef and owner, Christian Schienle takes great pride in running this cozy spot that has been in the family for almost 30 years. He finds time to welcome regulars while his delightful wife, Pamela, mixes cocktails behind the bar. The celery root remoulade and country duck pate are favorite appetizers, or choose from one of the daily specials. The entrees are cooked to perfection from skate fish with lemon and capers, to the hearty pork chop topped with braised onions and apples in calvados sauce. Relax and take in the ambiance while enjoying dessert, great picks are the chocolate mousse with caramelized bananas and créme angelais, or the profiteroles decorated in chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream and sliced almonds.
853 Lexington Avenue
