Daniel - Daniel Boulud
Amazing dinner at Daniel. Gorgeous and classical ambience with certain taste of good French/ authentic American but with lots of Japanese essence. Each portion of the dish was pretty big. Wagyu beef was amazing. (no extra charge)

Daniel - Daniel Boulud
I visited this place with my friends and we enjoyed the atmosphere there. All the people there were dressed nicely and this restaurant must be a place for special occasions. I have ordered some seafoods for appetizer and the Lapin for the main dish. All the dishes were okay, but not as expected. I believe it is not that worth to spend a lot for their meals and there are much more better restaurants to spend moneys here inNYC.

"Most people think fine dining restaurants are overpriced. What's your take on that?" "You should also see where all the extra charges went - The dining experience. We are a french restaurant, we try to entertain guests during their 3 hours dinner with different entertainment techniques such as 'flamb' carving in the dinning room. Plus there is at least 25 dollars in hidden complimentary costs before people even order anything: For example, Laiterie Chagnon Culture butter from Qubec, Daily Baked hand rolled variety of bread made by our Master Chef Baker Francois Brunet, Seasonal Canaps and Amuse Bouche, Petits Fours, Assorted Valrhona hand made Chocolat, Basket of warm Madeleines, A specialty from Bordeaux named Canel to enjoy at home. High quality linen for our tablecloths and napkins, silver ware by Christophe, Porcelaine from Bernardaud and Glasses by Riedel, plus the weekly flower arrangements. All for free and they all cost a lot of money." Eddy Lerouxeddy is the Chef de Cuisine at restaurantdaniel, one of the top resturant in the world. Then whats the motivation behind it?" "This may sound cliche, but we love what we do. There's a lot of people grow-up eating mass-produced products everyday and they never had a chance to experience what food suppose to taste like 20 years ago. Restaurants like us always try to support traditional method of farming to provide the best taste with seasonal ingredients at peak of maturity." ------------------------------------------------- #CreateNYC / Photo & Interview : oyuxi
NYC FOODIE MEAL OF A LIFETIME: DANIEL
Phenomenal. Amazing. Mind-Blowing. Perfect. Unbelievable. Wow. These were the words escaping my mouth as I consumed a 6+ course tasting ($185) at Daniel (well, I tried the 6 different courses my companion had too, so that is really 12 courses!), the four-star flagship restaurant from chef Daniel Boulud.
Good things come to those who wait, and it took me 30 years to get this amazing French restaurant, and boy was it worth the wait. It could just possibly be the best meal of my life. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. After getting a full renovation a year and a half ago, the place is just a treasure to sit in.
I didn't use my flash on my camera, although I wish I had, for these pics do not do this edible artwork justice, from Executive Chef Jean Francois Bruel, but you will get the idea. Let us commence.
First, let us try one of the fabulous cocktails from mixologist Xavier Herit. The Smokey Bandit ($16), llegal Joven Mezcal, Jalapeño, Orange Curacao, Fresh Pineapple, Lime Juice. Refreshing and splendid. Cocktail perfection.
Well hello melon soup, oh how you tickle my taste buds with refreshing joy. A pleasant start.
Bon Jour, Mosaic of Lola Duck, Porcini and Red Wine Gelee. Your shallot confit and rapeseed vinagraitee do complement you so well. A work of art in front of me. I could stare at you for days. Alas, you taste so yummy.
Duck Terrine with Poached Rhubarb, Sicilian Pistachios, Frisee-Augula Salad, Sauternes Gelee. Thank you for being the best terrine of my life. Let us go for a walk some time.
Welcome, Trio of Spanish Mackerel, warm with cumin, carrot mousseline, a tartar with North Star Caviar, and poached with White Wine Gelee. You are unique, delicious, and just fantastic!
Peekytoe Crab Salad with Persian Cucumber, black sesame coulis, early mesclun, and radishes. Fabulosity.
Well, well, well, look at you Hazelnut and Chorizo Maine Sea Scallop with stewed gnocchi, corn fricasee and nasturtium salad. For a second I thought I had an orgasm in my mouth. Oh wait, I did.
Artichoke Raviolini in Saffron Sauce, with littleneck clams, squid, cuttlefish, and anise hyssop salad. You are mind-blowing. For a second, I thought I had another orgasm in my mouth. Oh wait, I did.
Grilled Yellowfin Tuna with Vadouvan, Hawaiian Hearts of Palm, Fennel Confit, and Basil Salad you are delectable. Lets go skinny-dipping together and explore the sea.
Black Sea Bass with Syrah Sauce, Leek Potato "Parmentier", Roasted and Tempura Celery you are invited to my bedroom any night. You are the sexiest, freshest piece of bass I ever did lay my eyes and tongue on. You melt in my mouth.
Hey There, Mind-Blowing Meat courses! Elysian Fields Farm Loin with Tandoori Spiced Shoulder, Minted Ratatouille, Ricotta Gnocchi, Broccolini, and Zucchini Flower Tempura, you are pitch-perfect lamb. I want to lie on a hammock with you and spend the days relaxing with your delicious beauty.
Ah, Duo of Beef, Black Angus Short Ribs with Quinoa, Spring Onion Confit in Red Wine, Wagyu Tenderloin with Chanterelles, Green Asparagus, and Tellicherry Pepper Jus. You are more like a Duo of love. Because I love you. Wait, was that God I just saw walk by, cause I feel like im in Heaven. Oh, I am.
Consuming Dominique Ansel's desserts at Daniel to end this mind-blowing meal, is like having sex with Angelina Jolie, and then after Angelina departs, having sex with Natalie Portman. These deal closers are wonderful.
Like Strawberries in Citrus with Mascarpone Cream, Almond Sponge, and Lemon-Limoncello Sorbet. Yes, please. Oh, yes!
Ahhh, Warm Guanaja Chocolate Coulant with Liquid Caramel, Fleur de Sel, and Milk Sorbet. You are truly unbelievable and exceptional! You ooze goodness and greatness. Thank you for my third orgasm of the night, I appreciate it. And you know what, Giandjua Sablé with Nyangbo Chocolate, Puffed Rice, and Hazelnut Ice Cream, you may as well join us in this culinary orgy. You are the wind beneath my wings.
So, if you crave four-star dining at it’s best; amazing, mind-blowing, and truly orgasmic dishes, Daniel is the restaurant you need to come to. If you go to Daniel’s website, you’ll hear a beautiful song playing which states, “Everyone dreams about heaven, nobody knows what to think..” Well, I think Daniel is Heaven, so say hi to God for me if you see him. I’m sure he’s dining there.
Restoranlar eletiriyoruz. Yemekleri lezzetsiz, elemanlar yetersiz, fiyatlar pahal, malzemeleri kt, valesi yok, havasz, karanlk, zensiz vs. Bunun gibi binlerce neden sayabiliriz. Peki mteri ahlak var m bu lkede? Kendimizi hangi konularda eletirmemiz gerekir? Bugn size en ok duyarsz kaldmz bir mteri ahlakndan sz edeceim: rezervasyon kltr. Bu lkede restoranlarda en byk sorun bu. Bir restorana telefon alyor. Akam 8'de 4 kii geleceiz deniyor. Restoran cironun en yksek olduu gnler olan cuma ve cumartesi gnleri masasn o isime ayryor. Saat 8 oluyor gelen yok, 8.15, 8.30 gelen yok. Mteriler rezervasyon yaptrp gelmedii gibi, bir zahmet telefon ap gelemeyeceini bile sylemiyor. Oysa bilmiyor ki telefonla igal ettii masa yznden, yine bir masa isteyen ve o akam oraya gelmeyi bekleyen mteriler oraya gelemiyor. Restoran belki de mdavim olacak mterilerden, o geceki cirodan oluyor. Bir restoran sahibi olsanz siz ne dnrsnz? Avrupa ve Amerika'da birok iyi restoran artk kredi kart numaranz almadan rezervasyon yaptrmyor. Rezervasyon yaptrp gitmezseniz btn o masa cretini ceza olarak dyorsunuz. Bu davran belki "mteriye bu terbiyesizlik yaplr m?" sorusunu aklnza getirebilir. Peki "yaamak iin bo durmamas gereken masalara ihtiya duyan iletmelere bu terbiyesizlik yaplr m?" sorusu aklnza gelmiyor mu? En byk hatamz da syleyeyim: "aman naslsa birileri gelir benim yerime!" dncesizliimiz... Kimse gelmiyor, gelmek isteyenler de daha nceden "masamz dolu" diye geri evrilmi oluyor. Yine bir baka hatamz "oras benim yerim bana orada hep yer var!" dncesi. O gn o restoran azna kadar doluysa, yer bulmas iin zorlayarak size sayg gsteren o elemanlar nasl zor duruma dryorsunuz hi dndnz m? Hepimiz restoranlar eletirirken aslan kesiliyoruz. Kendimizi eletirirken de ayn yrei gstermeliyiz. Emee sayg duyun sevgili dostlarm! "Rezervasyon" bir telefon elencesi deil. Sizi orada bekleyenler olduunu unutmayn! Mteri ahlaknz koruyun!
Daniel was fantastic. We travel to the city for date nights regularly, but had never tried this restaurant. The ambiance and staff were extraordinary. While it was one of the most expensive meals I've ever had, it was one of the most memorable. We had the four course tasting which offers a sampling of various entrees. You cannot go wrong here.

Ms all de eso quiero darles mis apreciaciones personales. La decoracin tiene mucho de art deco y me encanta que es bastante iluminado, no s ustedes pero me gusta ver bien lo que estoy comiendo, es un ambiente que lo hace sentir cmodo a uno. El servicio aparte de correcto es atento y agradable, poco rgido. Mi momento favorito cuando mi foie gras (en foto) lo flambearon en frente mo en una mini cocina que llevan a la mesa. boulud nyc

NYCFG's Foodie Picks: Top 3 Luxury Romantic Restaurants
NYC Foodie Girl's Top Foodie Picks --that's a hard topic! I'm asked a lot, "So, you write a blog about food - what's your number one place?" "Where should I go for the best NY pizza?" "Where can I have a romantic dinner?"
This happens often, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite spots in a series of posts, focusing on Manhattan, since this is where I primarily dine and know best.
This is my first post regarding Luxury Romantic Dining options - my top 3 picks. Your comments and feedback are welcome!
These are in no particular order, but here it goes:
Luxury Romantic Dining - NYCFG Picks the Top 3 for Manhattan - New York City:
Daniel - 60 East 65th Street (Upper East Side - between Park and Madison Avenue)
I love the ever-evolving menu and the delicate dishes that are created here. It's classy. It's Upper East Side haute cuisine. Attention to detail is everything. Oh -and the drinks can be pretty phenomenal too. Check the cocktail list and have one
before going into the main dining room.
Make sure you meet the dress code requirements and book your reservation ahead of time. It's fine luxury dining, so be prepared for top notch.
Full disclosure: I was engaged here and had my wedding reception hosted a la Daniel.

Daniel is an award winning French restaurant located on the Upper East Side in New York City. One of famed chef Daniel Boulard's restaurants, it is regarded by many as one of the best dining experiences in New York City. Reviewers overwhelmingly give the restaurant the highest praise, almost all are five stars.
The restaurant offers both a prix fixe and a la carte menu. The prix fixe tasting menu offers several options - 3 or 7 courses, vegetarian, and seafood among them. Most recommended the tasting menu which allows the opportunity to sample many of the chef's finest creations. The restaurant also features a full bar and an extensive wine menu. Prices are high, however, most reviewers felt this was fair considering the quality of the venue.
Described as featuring neo-classical architecture, the ambiance at Daniel's is sophisticated and elegant. The restaurant is formal and jackets are required for the dining room.
Reviews are somewhat mixed in regards to service. While many reviewers felt that the service was personal and went above expectations, others felt that while the staff was efficient, they lacked warmth. Reviewers also advised to keep in mind that the restaurant books up close to two months in advance and to keep this in mind when seeking a reservation.
