We enjoyed our final night in New York City by having dinner with our sister-in-law, nephew, niece and Keith's brother at a restaurant in the Times Square area. The restaurant is called Le Rivage which we all ate at for lunch in 2010. We enjoyed it so much we thought it would be a nice restaurant to have dinner at last night. It was about a 15 minute walk from our hotel. It is located on a street which used to be home to many other French restaurants. Today, there is a wide range of restaurants on both sides of the street that serve many different types of cuisine.
Le Rivage like many of the other restaurants attracts many customers who are attending the theater and come for a pre or post theater dinner. Their menu is extensive and they feature a set menu featuring appetizer, entree and dessert with ten or more choices under each category.
We are including two photos. Our niece arrived a few minutes after we all went inside as she was coming to the restaurant from school as she is in a graduate law program.
Today is pretty much a travel day. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel and finished packing and then got ready to check out later in the morning from the hotel. We had a private car take us from the hotel to JFK International Airport. Traffic was better than expected.
When we arrived to JFK there was a slowdown as they were randomly pulling vehicles off to the side for inspection. Once we arrived to the terminal we check in at the ticket counter. The terminal was very quiet. When we arrived to the TSA Pre Approv Security line Keith asked the TSA agent where everyone was. He said that it was busy in the morning but has been quiet ever since. We think its been years since we saw an airport this quiet. We were through security in less than a minute. We are at the airline's club lounge and just had lunch. The club is being renovated so Keith went into the terminal and brought back lunch for us. In case you were wondering we each had a salad entree. LOL, but we really did have salads.
The people at the airport have been very friendly. We had stopped by a store to pick up a magazine and the person at the cash register said to Anne Marie "is that your husband"? Anne Marie said yes and then the women said "you both look like you keep in very good shape." How kind of her to say that and we did thank her for her kindness.
We will be here a few more hours before our flight.
In a few days we will post a summary of our trip.
This trip has truly been amazing and we have made memories which will last a lifetime.
