If you’re looking for a romantic French restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, this is a fabulush spot. Located at 35 West 64th in the UWS (steps from Lincoln Center), Picholine is a well established, fine dining restaurant specializing in French-Mediterranean cuisine. From its Manhattan Glamour decor to the 5 star table service (uber fabulush), this is a restaurant perfect for special occasion dining. We visited this spot for my birthday (they offer a special menu for bdays) and the eve was stellar. Check out what MG had below…

Birthday Wish (the little details count)
- Make reservations ahead of time as they get booked quickly.
- If the special occasion is a birthday, let them know. (Midtown Chap spoke to them without me knowing, which made the eve feel even more special).
- Order one of their signature cocktails before dinner arrives. Their cocktails are delish and generously sized.
