New York City, New York, United States, North America: Daniel restaurant
60 E. 65th Street
Upper East Side
New York City , New York
Tel: 212 288 0033's insider take:

Why go to Daniel? Because you owe it to yourself to experience the real thing at least once. French haute-cuisine restaurants are vanishing from New York, but Daniel, on the Upper East Side, remains and flourishes because chef Boulud is almost always in the kitchen, ensuring that the dishes balance classic technique with new culinary influences. What other kitchen wraps shrimp in kadaifa, the Arab shredded wheat? Or puts crispy calf's head "ballotine" on the $96 prix-fixe? If you don't want to commit to a whole meal, you can choose from a shorter, à la carte menu in the lounge, where you'll be as coddled as you would be in the opulent dining room.

Closed Sundays.
