Le Bernardin creates a lively atmosphere conducive for conversation, but subdued enough for a romantic dinner. Soft background music and the usual chatter and clamor of a busy restaurant set a vibrant mood without making you feel as if you’re in a crowded subway or on top of your neighbor. A seafood meal at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant pulls you into 51st Street’s energy as the city passes by outside. Filled with suits holding power lunches during the day and chic New Yorkers lingering in the evening, Le Bernardin is sure to be busy but successfully traverses that thin line between bustling and noisy.
