A reader writes in to praise both the tailoring and dry cleaning skills of Meurice Garment Care at 57th and Second:
I wanted to compliment Meurice Garment Care. Recently a good friend gave me his nice sports coat. It was a bit too big and needed a cleaning so I asked him to recommend a place to take it to. He said he always takes his stuff to Meurice, so I decided to give it a try. I wasn't looking forward to going because in the past I've dealt with some pretty terrible dry cleaners. At Meurice the customer service was phenomenal—they were very helpful and kind. When I got the jacket back it looked amazing and fit me like a glove. They're not the most inexpensive place but I really got my money's worth and I don't think there are many other places out there that could have done as great of a job.Meurice's midtown location gets four out of five stars on Yelp, though it's only been reviewed three times. There's also a Greenwich Village outpost, and the reviews there are even better.
