Fodor's Expert Review Daniel

$$$$ Upper East Side French Fodor's Choice

Celebrity-chef Daniel Boulud has created one of the most elegant dining experiences in Manhattan in an equally elegant formal (jacket required) dining room with some serious artwork. The prix-fixe menu (there are à la carte selections in the lounge and bar) is predominantly French, with such modern classics as turbot on Himalayan salt, and a duo of dry-aged Black Angus beef featuring red wine–braised short ribs and seared rib eye with mushrooms and Gorgonzola cream. Equally impressive are professional service, extensive wine list, and masterful cocktails. Don't forget the decadent desserts and overflowing cheese trolley. A three-course vegetarian menu is also available.
