This Upper East Side spot features fresh, seasonal takes on French Contemporary cuisine courtesy of star chef Daniel Boulud. Daniel has always been lauded for its excellent food, and since last year’s sleek re-design of the space, Daniel has been better than ever.  With 4 stars from the New York Times, 3 stars from the latest Michelin guide, and a James Beard Award for Excellent Service, no one seems to be disagreeing. Favorite dishes include the Vodka-Beet Cure Hamachi Loin with Walnuts appetizer and duo of dry aged Black Angus Beef.
