If L’ADDRESSE American Bistro doesn’t ring a bell yet, trust us – it soon will. Located across from the southwest corner of Bryant Park, this barely one-year-old restaurant has quickly established itself as among the best of the neighborhood with its modern international cuisine. While True World Foods is best known for its association with some of the finest sushi restaurants in New York City and beyond, it is proud to be called upon by ambitious restaurants of all types to deliver fresh fish from around the world.
L’ADDRESSE is the first US location of the beloved Moscow-based restaurant group Coffeemania. But while Russian in origin, the style of cooking draws on culinary techniques and flavors that are influenced by cuisines ranging from Asian to European, as well as Continental. According to Evgeny Zhuravlev, the Director of International Business Development, the aim of the restaurant is to be a “second home” where one can enjoy locally sourced high-quality food in a setting that welcomes you morning noon, or night. To do so, they have tapped Chef Lee Hernandez, who has worked at high-end sushi restaurants, to oversee the menu.
While diners can delight in everything from Borscht to steak, Hernandez also gets to showcase his notable experience with fish. An admiration for freshness and quality is obvious in the bright and citrusy Hamachi Tartare. The Pasta Nera, a best-seller, tosses shrimp, calamari, and squid ink pasta in a beautiful cream sauce. But it’s the obsession with lobster that is clear from the get go. Every day, a surfeit of fresh lobster is shipped in for their highly popular, signature Lobster Uni Carbonara. But also make sure to lunch on their Lobster Rolls, which have a subtle Asian spin that makes them one-of-a-kind. “As a sushi trained chef, True World Foods has always been part of my experience,” says Hernandez, “and with L’ADDRESSE, I couldn’t imagine working with anyone different. Whatever I need, they are always able to get it to me, even at the last minute.” Zhuravlev added, “They are perhaps our most reliable vendor. It makes it easier for us to work because we know they will be on time, they deliver everything fresh, and I don’t have to worry.”
With its access to the best fish both locally and internationally, True World Foods continues to prove itself a leading resource – no matter where your menu takes you.

The Lobster Uni Benedict (above) and fabled Hamachi Tartare (below) are among the most popular dishes, for good reason.
The dining room is both dynamic and comfortable, whether you’re there for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
