THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bar Blanc Restaurant Review

: Set on a tranquil, tree-lined West Village street, this eatery is on the radar of hip night owls who crowd the white marble bar at the front of a long, narrow room that’s bedecked in pale hues. If only the food made as much an impact as the noise. (Chef César Ramiriz has left the restaurant and Sebastiaan Zijp picks up at the stoves.) A bland salad topped with spongy sweetbreads and rabbit terrine may precede a dreamily moist slow-cooked organic chicken. The dried-out milk-fed porcelet seems to have been weaned too early, but the circular lamb shoulder lasagna with paper-thin sheets of pasta stands proud on a score of black trumpet mushrooms. The Meyer lemon soufflé and the chocolate cake with salty caramel ice cream draw a sweet and colorful coda to a somewhat pale experience. And if the noise gets too unbearable, you can always indulge in another bottle of wine from the nicely selected but eclectic wine list.
