57 Belle House

I generally feel like my friendships are pretty even, with an equal amount of give and take. But with Livia no matter what I do I always feel like she’s much more thoughtful, caring and kind. She’s someone who bends over backwards for the people in her life, and I every time we talk I feel lucky to have her as a friend.

Her only flaw is that she moved away from New York City! But luckily she was visiting from Miami last month so we were able to get together over dinner one Friday night at 57 Belle House, an adorable French restaurant in Midtown.

It was so much fun seeing her again!

And meeting her friend Galina.

We started with Belletinis, mostly because the name is so cute. It’s a delicious mix of Titos, peach schnapps, lime juice and mango puree.

We selected the Lobster Bisque as a starter and loved it!

Then for dinner Galina had the Grilled Tuna served with spinach, red and yellow peppers and herb sauce.

Livia had the Pappardelle Aux Champignons which is flat pasta with wild mushrooms, tomato, cream and garlic.

And I selected the Risotto de la Mer, which comes with lobster, shrimp, tomatoes, asparagus, garlic and olive oil sauce. It was fine but didn’t blow me away.

Neither Livia nor Galina are from America, so over after-dinner coffee they told me the craziest stories about growing up, like how hospitals in Hungary give you a packing list and you’re meant to bring your own medicine, soap and toilet paper whenever you have operations! I’m still not 100% sure whether or not they were teasing me, but regardless we were laughing so hard by the end of our conversation!

It was so nice having Livia back in New York City! Now if only it was permanent!
