      Café Boulud in the Upper East Side (New York City) reflects Daniel Boulud’s mantra of  tradition, seasonality, vegetables and world cuisine. Its three stars in the New York Times rankings and one-star Michelin Guide rating make Café Boulud a firm favorite with locals and visitors from further afield alike. Executive Chef Aaron Bludorn and his team serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week in relaxed but elegant surroundings, indoors or on the terrace, a short stroll from Central Park. The adjacent Bar Pléiades serves some of the neighborhood’s finest cocktails and is perfect for a gathering or intimate rendez-vous. Wine is a key feature of the restaurant’s philosophy and the aim is variety both in terms of origin and price, from good quality $39-a-bottle French cellar staples right through to an iconic Romanée-Conti 2009 for $12,000. A selection of 35 wines is available by the glass starting at just $10. The wine list is curated to bring out the best in the menu devised by Chef Daniel Boulud and Executive Chef Aaron Bludorn with original pairings such as striped bass and sauce Meurette with Vosne-Romanée from Burgundy. Expect the unexpected with the “Le Voyage” section of the menu, packed with novel and exciting combinations such as Vietnamese-style sea bass with tamarind and turmeric served with Italian Orange wine or a Croatian red. Vegetarians are also well catered for and this care extends to the wine selection with organic, biodynamic and naturally produced cuvées.  The wine list is not restricted to French and American bottles. Diners can take up the challenge of pairing items on the frequently updated menu with wines from all over the world. An additional plus point is the fine dessert wine list featuring ports, sherries, late harvest wines and eight vintages of Château d’Yquem. The extensive selection of traditional French post-dinner digestifs includes vintage Calvados, Armagnac and super-premium Cognac. Bon appétit NYC!

      My husband and I were very happy that the restaurant had created a special lunch menu for Restaurant Week. He enjoyed shrimp tartine and salmon, and I had delicious watermelon gazpacho and spinach fettuccini. We chose the white wine that was suggested and had peach melba for dessert. The service was attentive, professional and smily. The tables are prepared beautifully along with attractive floral arrangements. I recommend this French restaurant ;-)

      I came to the Café Boulud on the Upper East Side a few days ago, and the experience was great. The quality is exceptional, the dishes of a great diversity and the relatively affordable price for the quality. There is an interesting selection of French wines but also organic. Ideal when you are asthmatic like me. It is very pleasant! The setting is quite intimate so ideal for a romantic dinner. The cocktails are homemade and the service is just impeccable!

      A beautiful experience especially for the wine lovers ... the setting is chic, the menu is varied and very interesting, special mention for the Sommelier who has perfectly supported us for the choice by the glass dishes from starter to dessert! We tested the formula "lunch" with 2 dishes. The price is quite right for a gourmet cuisine. The smiling staff, the service is of quality (still congratulations to the Sommelier for his advice in food pairings), the restaurant is intimate. In short, a very good place to have fun in NYC and eat French as we were in Paris.
