La Tulipe was awarded 3 stars by the New York Times. It was a Greenwich Village restaurant located in the basement of a New York Brownstone. You walked through a bar reminiscent of Paris, back to a cluster of tables in a chocolate colored room with pretty tulip sconces and flower arrangements - more often than not of tulips. A couple, named John and Sally Darr, owned the place. John ran the front of the house and Sally cooked. She took her time doing it and the waits were notoriously long. But one was rewarded with a romantic evening and a memorable dining experience. Julia Childs was one of its many fans. Sadly, the place closed in 1991. For Valentines Day we thought we would recreate one of their famed recipes.
