As you enter, you can't help but notice how beautifully decorated the restaurant is. It really is a perfect mix of chic, trendy, and elegant. The walls are decorated with these interesting textured flowers and the lights along the walls are made of this clear material that casts a chandelier shaped shadow on the wall!

Now while most people love NYC Restaurant Week, I usually try to avoid it. Each time I gave NYC RW a go, the menu was either very generic and non-reflective of the restaurants usual fare or the portions were so small that I needed to make a stop at Taco Bell afterwards for a top-up.
However, as I perused both Apiary's regular menu and NYC RW menu, I was surprised to see a selection of Apiary's regular dishes on the NYC RW menu! Even more surprising, both the appetizer and entree I would have selected from the regular menu were on the NYC RW menu!

At this rate, why not give NYC RW another go? I'm feeling lucky so far! And so I decided to start with the Tuscan White Bean Soup and my Eating Accomplice start with the Baby Romaine Salad.

For our entree, we all ordered the Atlantic Merluza (fish from the Cod family).

And, of course, each NYC RW meal ends with a dessert!

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Apiary. Not only did I actually enjoy NYC Restaurant Week, but I also can't wait to go back and try the other things that Apiary has to offer!
