We recently visited L’Avenue, Saks Fifth Avenue’s restaurant. It might not be possible to experience a better evening of food and ambiance. Located on the ninth floor of the famous Saks department store, L’Avenue has become a chic and trendy place to go for brunch or dinner.
From the moment you walk in from the long entrance corridor, you are struck by a warm welcoming interior of brown and tan colors, with blonde wood throughout. It is one of the most comforting atmospheres we have been in.
You will be greeted by a friendly maitre’d, who then turns you over to one of the most knowledgeable staff that will take excellent care of your dining preferences. If you are not sure what to order they can help with some friendly suggestions.
Although the name suggests you will find a French cuisine they offer more than French food. What you will find is a menu that is modern, fresh and inspired from around the World. You will find a fabulous diverse menu with:
Artichoke, Asparagus & Parmesan
Shrimp Dim Sum
Roasted Miso Salmon
Vegan Curry Vegetable
But for our recommendations start with the King Crab Lettuce or Avocado/Tuna Tartare and for your entree, you cannot go wrong with either the Spicy Lobster Pasta or their perfectly seared Filet Mignon.
Desserts to die for!
But whatever you order don’t fill yourself too much because you need to try their desserts, and we mean NEED! Created by the famous Parisian patissier Piere Herme they are simply mouthwateringly divine.
Costes Crackers Cheesecake
Key Lime Tart
Strawberry Kiwi Panna Cotta
Petit Gateau a la Banane (small banana cake)
Salade de Fruit Frais (seasonal fruit salad)
We highly recommend the S’mores Cup, the graham cracker ice cream, what can we say but beautiful!
So if you are looking for a wonderful and cozy night out or a fabulous brunch, trust us you can not go wrong at L’Avenue at Saks.
