At La Grenouille, chef Noah Metnick’s food philosophy is in tune with the restaurant’s décor: It’s all about keeping things fresh. Much like the elegant flower arrangements that fill the rooms, the menu at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is focused around what’s available. Metnick cooks only with seasonal ingredients to guarantee the freshest quality to those who choose to dine at the New York restaurant. In fact, La Grenouille’s commitment to only serving fresh and seasonal ingredients can sometimes mean that items on the menu are available in limited quantities. When an ingredient runs out, it runs out — La Grenouille will never freeze ingredients for later use. This only means that what you are eating is the most flavorful it can possibly be.
