Over the years little has changed on the menu in an effort to preserve its French tradition. With the exception to its delicious appetizer; avocado crab cake, a daily soft shell crab special and an organic menu (beet salad, grass fed beef) allowing the restaurant to offer various kinds of French foods on the Upper East Side of New York.

 Pairing Drinks at Demarchelier

The simplest rule to remember is to color match foods to wine. While a  steak can do well with a white wine, generally red meats pair better with red wines and poultry and seafood pair better with white wines. A  key expert tip is to keep the paring simple.Meats such as their rib eye steak goes well with their reds such as  their Cabernet Sauvignon La Villette and white wine goes with seafood and poultry such as their Chateau de Camilly Chardonnay.

In terms of dessert, in French culture dinner ends with a bit of sugar. Whether its a light panna cotta, a crepe suzette or a flaming grand marnier – it’s a must.
