Café Boulud

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 nights, we feature a $39 two-course prix-fixe lunch six days a week, and a $42 two-course prix-fixe brunch on Sundays. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 20 guests each are available for your private entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40.

The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3 pm onward.

We will participate in Restaurant Week Monday-Friday (lunch only) from January 18th-February 5th.

"The staff at Cafe Boulud exudes confidence, which is derived from their expectation that the diner will have a superb experience. That confidence is well deserved, and is not hyperbolic to any degree. The food was plentiful, and exquisitely prepared. The five of us shared pancakes, french toast and pastries: each more outstanding than the next. The entrees were equally satisfying. The poached eggs were sublime and the potatoes incredible. There is nothing the chef could have done to make the food better: but the service was so impressive, it made the entire experience noteworthy. A better brunch in NYC will be hard to find.

"The service is simply amazing, the sommelier is impressive with his knowledge and pairing. The potage Lyonnaise soup was velvety and each ingredient on the plate has a reason for being there and the presentation was spectacular. We ordered from each quadrant of the menu, the seasonal duck preparation was well balanced between earthy, sweet and sour favors and cooked perfectly to the requested temperature. Can't wait to return"

"The charming staff at Cafe Boulud truly went above and beyond to make our first dining experience there a spectacular treat. It is establishments like these where the service is on par with the suburb food be served. This is the kind of service you go back for, again and again.
The seared duck breast was cooked to perfection, it was rich but balanced with the beets, fennel and yoghurt. I very rarely order deserts but the Molten Chocolate Cake and the Mont Blanc Vacherin were the highlight of the evening! Highly recommended.
Thank you Cafe Boulud for proving the reputation of French fine dining in New York is still alive and thriving. See you again soon!"

"We had lunch during restaurant week, and were delighted to enjoy such a supreme meal from the specially priced menu - the food and service were at a level that cannot be faulted , and all this for $25 ! Bravo to Cafe Boulud for maintaining their lofty cuisine and service, even when the restaurant is packed . We are returning this week to enjoy essentially the same lunch again - cannot be improved upon !"

"Always enjoy dining at Cafe Boulud.
The star dish of the day was the celery root veloute.
Unbelievably delicious.
Other dishes were great but the soup was outstanding.
Kudos to Chef Aaron!

"What a treat to be able to experience Cafe Boulud during Restaurant Week. Some venues of this caliber and reputation treat you less well if you ask for the special menu. Nothing like that here. The menu selections and service were outstanding. There were three of us so we could try all the options in every course. Every mouthful was divine. The glow kept us going through the wind and cold home. Thank you, everyone."

"The food is wonderful, and the Restaurant Week Menu had superb choices. We would have enjoyed it even more if we had not been so rushed. The amuse-bouche was whisked away the minute we sampled it; the waiter impatiently questioned me even though he could see I was trying to swallow; the check came before we asked for it; and we were in and out in approximately 50 minutes. People at nearby tables who were there before us were still eating. Definitely not what we expected at a restaurant of this caliber. Just to add to the strangeness: the restaurant added 33 cents to the amount I filled in (after tip) on my credit card."
