Around Town: Claudette, New York City

Claudette

For one of the most charming restaurant interiors, visit Claudette in New York City. It was a frigid day with blue skies and snow on the ground when I came here for lunch, but one step inside this restaurant made me feel like I was somewhere warm. With tables in an area that feels more like a living room than a dining room, the vibe is low-key for a city that never stops hustling.

The Strawberry Thyme Homemade Soda was a great choice (it won out over the Mint Lemonade, which I’ll have to try next time), and it tasted as though I was drinking a garden. The thyme was strong, so if you’re not a thyme lover, opt for the Mint Lemonade (or one of the many cocktails they offer). Lunch consisted of the Root Vegetable Salad, Le Pain Tunisien (warm garlic flat bread with Truffle Hummus – it was as good as it sounds), and the Lamb Burger. For a calm and delicious meal, this is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon.
