Celebrate at Beaubourg

The taxes have been done. Those of you who got a tidy refund, it may be time to celebrate. Where? Head on down to Brookfield Place's Le District, the "Paris" of New York City where Beauboug is located. Classically French, this menu will tempt you with escargots, Tornedos Rossini, and frog's legs. Remember that this is a celebration and not a gala all-out break-the-bank fiesta. The succulent steak frites hits all the right notes with a rich meaty flavor and just the right touch of caramelized fat around the edges that will make your mouth swoon. A mound of crisp yet tender French fries and a blade or two of salad greens rounds out this stunning dish. A glass of rose champagne or rich Burgundy elevates the meal to a higher plane. Shall we make a reservation?

Morceau de Chocolat

Many times a week all I want is a piece of pure dark chocolate. What do I choose? Royce Chocolate from Japan. Boxes containing individually wrapped pieces of dark or extra bitter chocolate melt in my mouth and bring happiness to my whole being. With locations on Madison Avenue and on Bleeker Street, a box containing Venezuelan or Ghanaian chocolate is reasonable and even if you eat just one piece a day, it will last you forty days! Now isn't this delightful?
