I love Gilt City. I mean really, really love them. I discovered them almost a year ago and since then I’ve eaten at some amazing places and purchased some of my favorite products – all at an incredible discount. Currently, Gilt City has teamed up with Lancôme – another favorite brand of mine – to offer Joie de Vivre, a Parisian-inspired online event featuring a curated Gilt City collection of Francophile experiences in Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and New York – from the hottest French bistros to French cooking classes!
One experience being offered is a three course dinner for two at NYC restaurant Beautique. Thanks to Gilt City & Lancôme, I was able to try out Beautique for myself! Beautique is located on 58th street, across the street from The Plaza Hotel. The dinner itself was delicious – and Beautique has taken the time to print special Gilt City menus – so you never have to finagle with your waiter/tress.
Beautique is located down a flight of stairs – which lends it an air of exclusivity, but also means my photos came out pretty rubbish because there’s no natural light (sorry guys!). My guest and I had their Zucchini & Goat Cheese Risotto with Meyer Lemon (a special for restaurant week); Chicken Breast with Pea Puree, Roasted Tomato and Chicken Jus; Branzino with Ramps, Artichokes, Potato Fondant, & Barigoule; and for dessert we had vanilla bean cheesecake with oreo ice cream.
As if I wasn’t feeling spoiled enough, I also previewed some pieces from Lancôme’s French Paradise Glowing Summer 2015 Color Collection – which I’ll be swatching separately – so keep an eye out!
