Michelin-starred chef Laurent Manrique brings classic French cuisine to New York with Millesime, a seafood brasserie located inside The Carlton Hotel. Named after the French word for vintage, Millesime specializes in classic French fare like lobster pot-au-feu with scallop sausage and sauce choron, and roasted chicken with garlic and thyme jus.
Executive chef Alan Ashkinaze has also incorporated his travels to the West Coast with a Caesar grillée, made of grilled romaine lettuce with smoked black cod, Parmesan, and lime; a calamari carbonara; and a tuna tartare with berbere spices, dates, and mint.
Not just the eclectic menu, but the sumptuous décor, too, will transport you to Paris at Millesime. In the dining room, which seats 150, there is a 100-year-old mosaic floor, a Tiffany glass dome, and a marble oyster bar where you can take advantage of Millesime’s raw bar. In addition to the main dining room, you can enjoy cocktails in the Bar Millie, or go to a cabaret in the Salon Millesime, with its nightly music program. 92 Madison Ave., 212-889-7100
