Café Boulud Restaurant Review

: An established clientele of regulars frequents this upscale café from Daniel Boulud. Chef Gavin Kaysen has departed the restaurant, and chef de cuisine Aaron Bludorn will take over the position. The kitchen turns out a creative, sophisticated cuisine based on a French and American foundation. Organized in four sections, the tour de force menu features "La Tradition" (classic French dishes), "La Saison" (seasonal plates), "Le Potager" (inspirations from the farmers markets) and "Le Voyage" (specialties from around the world). The latter has highlighted dishes like peekytoe crab salad with coconut, papaya, cilantro and vadouvan curry aïoli. Meanwhile, entrées from the classics heading may include dry-aged beef Rossini with foie gras, fingerling potatoes, spinach purée, wild mushrooms and Madeira jus. End your meal with the molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The wine list offers selections for price-conscious diners, while inventive cocktails are served in the adjacent Bar Pleiades, which is also managed by Boulud.
