Bar Boulud Review

Acclaimed French chef Daniel Boulud, known for upscale New York City eateries Daniel and Café Boulud, shows diners his more casual side with this lively contemporary bistro and wine bar. The long, narrow space accommodates 100 people and has a 14-seat round table for special wine-theme tastings. The menu emphasizes charcuterie, including terrines and pâtés designed by Parisian charcutier Gilles Verot, who relocated just to work with Boulud, as well as traditional French bistro dishes like steak frîtes and poulet rôti à l'ail (roast chicken with garlic mashed potatoes). The 500-bottle wine list is heavy on wines from Burgundy and the Rhône Valley. Wallet watchers won't feel left out: a pretheater three-course menu starts at $45, and weekend brunch has four courses plus coffee for $32.

    Bar Boulud Review

    Bar Boulud & DBGB are on their own NOT better than Cafe Boulud or Boulud Sud...I'm not sure if there is a bit of a quota on the Fodor's Choice list! Bar Boulud reads a bit late-20's to me, i.e. I'm too old for the happening-bar thing but still want an energetic buzz w/ my imbibing. And, talk about meat - the night I went, just about every thing on the simple/rustic menu was meat, and not the interesting kind - somehow my taste buds went numb after the 2nd appetizer. I felt terrined to death. Too too bad - location is awesome for pre/post-Lincoln Center.
