Review: Le Bernardin (Guest Blog by Kari, of My Inflammatory Writ)

Kari is one of my dear friends who lives in New York.  She shares my foodie exuberance and love of prosciutto holders (wow, is that a long story…). Anyway.  She mentioned she was going to Le Bernardin for dinner, and I jokingly suggested, “Oh, that’s […]
