Fodor's Review

Manhattan's who's who in business, politics, and the art world come to hobnob at Daniel Boulud's café-in-name-only, where the food and service are top-notch. The menu, overseen by Boulud protégé Gavin Kaysen, is divided into four parts: under La Tradition you can find classic French dishes such as roasted duck breast Montmorency with cherry chutney, green Swiss chard, and baby turnips; Le Potager tempts with lemon ricotta ravioli; La Saison follows the rhythms of the

season; and Le Voyage reinterprets cuisines of the world. Start with a drink at the chic Bar Pleiades.

Café Boulud Review

Here, people luxuriate over lunch - the day we were there, the dining room was buzzing well into the late PM. Roasted duck, awesome. Baba au Rhum, awesome. Location, perfect for the Whitney, Frick - but, who's counting?! Service was the only thing that approached the 'cafe' name.
