and oh what a night….
Daniel, owned by the incredible Chef Daniel Boulud on East 65th street, is one of my most favorite restaurants in the world. I have celebrated many wonderful occasions here including many birthdays. The food, service and atmosphere never disappoint. I was so impressed with how beautiful the dining room looked even at 25% capacity mandated by NY. Walking into the restaurant was like walking into a botanical garden. We couldn’t wait to try the new ‘Boulud Sur Mer’ menu
To start, I ordered the Octopus which was fantastic. For the entree, Kara and I had the Pompano Fish encrusted in salt for two. The server displayed the beautiful fish before expertly filleting it table side. A light sauce accompanied the fish. To compliment the fresh fish we chose an elegant Daou chardonnay which is produced by my friend in Pasa Robles, California. For dessert, we opted for a cheese assortment with a glass of Sauternes that paired perfectly. Oh, and you mustn’t forget the warm madeleines that they spoil you with after dessert.
Thank you Daniel and your amazing staff for transporting us to the South of France, even if it was for just an evening. You brought back many wonderful memories so I had to also post the pic of us from my birthday in 2019. I can’t wait to return to celebrate more occasions.
