Former high end restaurant people opened this posh spot in the Theater District. $21 prix fixe lunch for two courses is a major deal for this level of food. I added on the dessert for $10 which was well worth the cost. La Silhoutte offers French/American comfort and does it mighty well. If you go for lunch there are three choices each among the appetizers, mains and desserts. I had the grilled leek salad with duck procuitto, and grilled red onion dressing, Amish chicken with wild mushrooms, and olive, caper jus. For dessert the cheesecake with strawberry rhubarb compote and mango sorbet. Each course was better than the one before it. The grilled leek salad was a lovely start with winey red onion dressing. Amish chicken was pure comfort with it's lovely mushrooms and bread dippable jus. The star was the cheesecake- light and perfectly set off by the compote and sorbet. Uber professional service.
