Beau Soleils (Beaux Soleils?) at L'Impero

Oysters: For my first course on Friday at L'Impero in Manhattan's Tudor City, five Beau Soleil oysters from New Brunswick with hearts of palm, grapefruit and blood orange oil. Astonishingly good at $16 — one of the most delicious and appealing presentations of oysters I've ever eaten. accompanied by a few glasses of a Basque grapefruit-toned wine called Txakolí de Bizkaia, then followed by a second course of house-made spaghetti. I will not forget this meal for a very long time. (No photos; they would not have been appropriate.)

Reading: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, by Dai Sijie.
