The story of Balthazar

In 1997, Keith McNally opened the original Balthazar restaurant in New York City. After 16 years, residents of London finally got the chance to witness the opening of Balthazar in their city. The response of the public was amazing, so it’s no wonder that it was quite hard to get a table for weeks after the opening.
