What a sublime NYC dining experience. Everything we ordered was wonderful as you would expect. It's a beautiful restaurant with a casual but elegant feel. The service was impeccable but not fussy or pretentious. Just eat here. You will love it.

Description
CAFÉ BOULUD features a French-American menu inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's four culinary muses: la tradition, classic French cuisine; la saison, seasonal delicacies; le potager, the vegetable garden; and le voyage, the flavors of world cuisines. In addition to dinner seven days a week, we offer a rotating two-course ($39) or three-course ($45) Lunch du Marché menu from Monday to Friday and brunch on weekends. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 18 guest each are available for your entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40. The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3pm.
