I went to Bar Boulud last night and sat at the high top bar. I have to say, and this is coming from a girl who goes out to eat EVERY night, I absolutely adored everything about this restaurant! Daniel definitely hit a home run with his excellent combination of wine, meats, cheeses and amazing vegetables. Every dish was extremely thought out and creative! I will definitely be back, and I would recommend Bar Boulud to everyone!!

Took my boyfriend here saturday 2/2 for quiet bithday dinner...always wanted to eat at a Boulud place. Went early because we had plans for later in the night empty at 530, but packed by 615. Atmosphere is like an old-world euro wine cellar, but furniture doesn't fit that theme - seems cheap and ikea-ish. Wine was excellent, our waitress did a good job of recommending based on our tastes. He got the steak frites - good but not the best ever. Fries were average. I got the Salmon entree, over some weird pureed root vegetable with syrah sauce which was awesomely addictive in the "I-don't-even-know-whats-in-this-but-i-love-it " way. Spinach side is goo. Dessert was a trio of sorbets, yummy and light to counter the heavy food. Service was great for everthing (coat check, drinks, silverware refresh, bread, etc.) Looks like fun to sit at the back tasting table, or the high-top bar. Type of "safe" upscale place you can recommend without hestitation and bring your parents to when they're in town, but not somewhere you'd long to return again and again...

I popped into this popular new restaurant for brunch before going to the theatre. They have a prix fixe but I was told I could order a la carte and chose their herb omlette. I also asked for green tea, but was told they don't offer it. The omlette came with a small serving of hashbrowns. Ther was absolutely nothing distinctive about the food. In fact, it was rather bland and portions small. The bill came and the omlette cost $28! I told my waiter I thought that was a bit ridiculous. He came back and adjusted the bill to $24 for the omlette. Maybe there other offerings are better, but I won't be going back to find out.
