Celebrate the Holiday Season by visiting the charming German French Bistro, Chez le Chef located at 127 Lexington Avenue in midtown Manhattan.
This quaint cozy eatery is owned by Chef Frédéric Piepenburg, a European-trained pastry chef who lived in Paris and worked at many of the top hotels in France before opening his own bakery off of the Avenue des Champs- Élysées selling bread to famous people such as Fashion Designer CoCo Chanel before planting his roots in New York City.
Upon entering we were immediately welcomed by Chef Frédéric easily recognized by his thick white muttonchop whiskers and handlebar mustache who is often mistaken by St. Nicholas or better known to small children as Santa Claus. The restaurant is decorated with old world charm and a revolving display of enticing pastries. Between the tags for chocolate "ganache tart" and "diabetic moka mousse cup" are exhortations to "Eat what's in Season!"
Chef Frédéric's talent for creating delectable sweets and baked goods make Chez le Chef the perfect choice for breakfast and brunch. Specialties for brunch include Chef Frédéric's famous omelets or a sweet showered French toast with cinnamon sugar. The savory menu features French dishes such as Croque Monsieur and Madame, pâté, Nicoise salad to Germany treats such as herring and potato salads to Italian Gnocchi Florentine and Hungary Goulash.
Many celebrities have dined at Chez Le Chef including, Dr. Ruth, Fashion Model, Iman, Whitney Houston, Opera Singer Placido Domingo and New York City Mayor Bloomberg.
Before the Christmas Season is over make it a point to stop by and visit Chez Le Chef and order your Holiday desserts. For more information contact Chez Le Chef at 212-685-1888.
