CAFE DES ARTISTES
Earlier today, we had lunch at one of Manhattan's historic restaurants, CAFE DES ARTISTES, located at 1 West 67th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Café which opened in 1917, is known for its lushly romantic and whimsical setting - including the famous nude paintings of illustrator and portrait painter, Howard Chandler Christy. Christy lived next door to the restaurant at the Hotel Des Artistes, a beautiful gothic residential building.
The menu reflects the best of European bistro cooking, serving such dishes as Steak Frites, Pan-roasted Duckling, Salmon Five Ways & Pot au Feu with Marrow Bones. The cafe's website is at www.cafenyc.com.
