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.

"Everything about this restaurant is superb. Solicitous service; the finest food from appetizers to dessert to the bread service; all were wonderful. Even the greeters at the front door were charming and welcoming.
We loved it!

"Keeps getting better and better. Always reliable with a menu that uses fresh seasonal ingredients with classic techniques to provide a meal that is satisfying and not heavy. Prix fixe menus offer a good value but the other offering are so tempting that I am afraid that you will stray. Everything was beautifully executed and served by a friendly accommodating staff. Wine by the glass can be pricey so look over the list for better values here. I really can't wait to return....and the signature petit Madeleines at the end are the topper."

"I ordered the Senegal special lamb. It was a very unsuccessful dish. It did not appear to contain the ingredients that were indicated on menu. It was incredibly disappointing.
My wife had two appetizers; Tuna tartare and Mackeral. She said they were good.
I had a pasta appetizer..it was OK but not very special. The service was very good and the sommlier was exceptionally helpful

"This was on our list of must do's when in NYC. It was not a let down but a great lift up on a Sunday afternoon. The service was impeccable, the food, DB's Smoked Salmon was divine, the English Pea Soup was classic. We had the Jamon Benedict and the Crab Benedict and they were hands down the best we have every had!. It was a perfect way to Brunch in NYC."

"Beautiful space, great atmosphere. Very elegant. Lively, but we could hear each other talking. Most of the diners were dressed very well, and somewhat formally. Men were largely in jackets and ties. Drinks were perfect. Dessert was a standout. The food was mostly very good, though my veggie gnocchi was not good and my mom's duck was rather bland. Risotto appetizer was exceptional, and the filet main course was excellent. Prices were high but not totally crazy--dinner for four with tip and tax was $500. I'd definitely go back."

"Have always loved an evening at Cafe Boulud. Is the essence of fine dining in an intimate
setting with great ambience, great food, great service and an outstanding wine list.
All these come with a significant price tag, however this one is good value for the price.
It has never disappointed us in the past 8+ years.

"Cafe Boulud is always great. This time I was there for a business lunch and it was perfect. The service is impeccable as is the food. If it is a nice day, they do have outdoor seating, but make sure to request this with your reservation.
It consistently fine dining in a "not over the top" setting.

"What a beautiful restaurant. Wanted to have a cocktail at the bar next door but the day ran long, next time.
Our dinner was delicious. I have eaten at Daniel's in the past and this was just as good.
I will definitely return.
And the beignets after are so yummy.

"Cafe boulud was an incredible experience. The food was delicious. I got the duck and it was perfectly cooked and incredibly tender. The wine was fantastic and the service was spectacular. It was a very pricey meal but it was worth it for a great experience."

"Went to Cafe Boloud for a late lunch on my last trip to NYC. I've been to the Cafe Boloud in Toronto so I figured the same quality in service and food can be expected.
Floor hosts and waiters were all attentive and accommodating. Restaurant was nicely decorated but a bit packed.
Had the 3-course prix fixe lunch, which is nicely priced at $45. Chose the steak, which you pay a little extra for, but that's fine as long as they can prepare the way I like it, which is rare. Good selection of bread. Starter arrived quickly but had to wait 30 minutes for my main course, which was a RARE steak. 40 minutes is a long time to wait for a main course. After waiting for a while, I inquired if the waitress can check on my order and I was told they are making sure my steak is done correctly. Which alludes to somebody not being able to prepare a rare steak correctly.
Once the steak arrived, it was cooked perfectly albeit the veggies were a few seconds close to being over cooked.
I had a rhubarb panna cotta, which was phenomenal, so big kudos to their pastry chef."
