Hg2 : The Hedonist

BLT Steak

Chef Laurent Tourondel – whose departed Cello on the Upper East Sidernannounced him to New York restaurant snobs – has spent the last few yearsrnre-proving his aptitude for pleasing big-spending, big city appetites,rnwith Chelsea’s BLT Fish; the Gramercy Park chophouse BLT Prime; and BLTrnSteak, the first spot of the 2000s, which has earned him the greatestrnculinary recognition and laid his claim to the initials BLT (BistrornLaurent Tourondel). As much a feast for the eyes as for the palate, the space is a sexyrnescape from Midtown, with a plush lounge anchored by a lengthy zincrnbar. Its main dining room, however, is a hive of activity; a strikingrnstage for Tourondel’s brand of dining with abandon. American Kobe skirt steak is marinated in fragrant herbs; the veal choprnis imposing and incredibly tender; spiced swordfish is a marvelousrnalternative to the red meat. Sides such as onion rings and potatorngratin are lifted to new heights, while sauces such as the threernmustard, classic b√©arnaise, or horseradish make sure all senses arernhumming by the time the check comes.
