New York City is full of trendy, delicious restaurants we’re all dying to try. New York City also is expensive enough to have you at home eating grilled cheese sandwiches multiple times a week. Luckily, thanks to Gilt City, you can now live in New York, and experience all the greatness it has to offer.
We recently used Gilt City to check out the Upper West Side’s own Cafe Tallulah, a French and Mediterranean spot whose cocktails are just as good as the food.
There are multiple options available, including lunch, brunch, and dinner options. We went with the dinner for two, which includes an appetizer, two cocktails, two entrees, and a dessert, for only $69. Well worth it.
For cocktails we started with The Serge Gainsbourg for the lady, and I went with the Jus D’Amour. The first was exceptionally refreshing, almost like lemonade with a cucumber kick, while the second was sophisticated with a bite. Just the way I like it.
For food, we started with the croquettes, which literally melted in your mouth and came with a delicious spicy dipping sauce that would have paired well with anything in my opinion. We then moved on to an exceptionally meaty dinner, and opted to order and split the Sterling Silver Steak and Le Burger. Both were cooked to perfection, and I would order either of them in a second given the chance… except for the fact that I would love to try every other thing on the menu.
I would offer you photos of the amazing entrees, but the cameras stayed down and the forks came out once we got a whiff of what our waitress presented to us (who also, was absolutely amazing, by the way). So I’ll offer you this instead…
As you can see, very little was left for the kitchen staff to clean up, because every single bite was as amazing as the last. We then grabbed some creme brûlée for dessert, and tried to walk our stuffed selves around the corner before calling it a night. Needless to say, this is the most full at an upscale NYC restaurant I have ever been for under $70, and that is something worth celebrating.
If you’re looking for some weekend plans, or have a hot date you’d like to take to a beautiful restaurant, do yourself a favor, head over to Gilt City, and grab one of the Cafe Tallulah options before time runs out. This amazing deal ends Monday, August 17th (once bought the voucher is good through November 6th) so hurry!
