Dinner at Tournesol
I recently had the chance to dine at Tournesol, a popular small but authentic French restaurant in Long Island City just across the river near the Queens side of the Midtown Tunnel.
I started with the Tarte fine à la saucisse et aux champignons PORK SAUSAGE AND MUSHROOM TART
For main course I had Saumon grillé, gratin de choux fleur, sauce porto GRILLED SALMON WITH CAULIFLOWER GRATIN AND PORT SAUCE
...paired with a wonderful Gigondas whose animal aromatics seamlessly melded with the sausage tart and then with the salmon.
