Profile

How sad that the word special has been denatured to sound more specious than praiseworthy. Because Daniel Boulud really is special. He's been blessed with the glorious gift of being able to mix familiar flavors into the most stunning of summations. He routinely triumphs in why-didn't-anyone-else-think-of-it feats such as the seasonal paupiette of sea bass in a crisp potato shell. The opulent but grace-challenged interior has been tinkered with almost as many times as Avery Fisher Hall, with modest success. It's not for lack of comfort, or the complexion-enhancing illumination, which rivals the work of Dr. Pat Wexler. But the setting has the overbearing splendor of Zeffirelli at the Met. Some of the surrounding clientele feel right at home, but should you fear you've been trapped inside a sachet, simply close your eyes with each chew.

Prix-Fixe

Three course dinner, $108; six course tasting menu, $195; eight course tasting menu, $220; vegetarian menu available.

Weddings
Channel the grandeur of Daniel and its legendary cuisine for your nuptials. Celebrate in either the intimate Bellecour room, which seats 90, or the breathtaking main dining room, which seats 140. The restaurant’s private-dining-event staff will orchestrate your party and customize a seasonal menu with wine pairings. Three-course dinners are $140 per person; four courses, $170 per person.

Recommended Dishes

Paupiette of sea bass (seasonal); braised short ribs
