Back To Black; Not Just For Amy Winehouse Anymore (RIP)

Ooo la la! With black being the name of the game at this swanky Midtown hang, NYC Yelp Elites took over the mezzanine of the newly minted Noir for a night of sophisticated revelry. Noir collage 1

A newcomer to Midtown, Noir boasts a contemporary American menu created by Chef Jean-Yves Schillinger, one of France’s most renowned chefs, and owner of JYS, a Michelin star restaurant in his hometown of Colmar, France.  Experienced in haute cuisine, Jean-Yves Schillinger hails from a pedigree of renowned chefs and has continued his family’s legacy with tenures at Joel Robuchon, Gerard Boyer, the Hotel de Crilon, and his own restaurants: Destinée, Olíca and JYS.  At Noir, he combines his classic French techniques with seasonal local ingredients for brunch, lunch, dinner and late night bites. In addition to the palate pleasing eats, gratis vodka from our pals at Austin, Texas' Tito's ensured there was a nice tasty buzz to compliment the nice tasty vittles. Noir collage 2
