It was a tough decision trying to figure out which Michelin restaurant to dine at during my visit to NYC! I chose Daniel due to the captivating pictures on yelp and the 5 star reviews! A few things to know upon coming here: - reservations begin 2 months in advance - there's 2 dining rooms (lounge and main room)  - main room requires men to wear suit jacket, lounge doesn't ENVIRONMENT: As we walked in through the revolving doors, we were greeted by the staff and was quickly directed to our table. From sitting down to leaving the restaurant, they paid attention to every little detail! I brought my bag and they brought a velvet stool just to put my bag on. After each bread we ate, they would come to scrape off all the crumbs. When I needed to use the restroom, they walked me towards the stairs instead of just pointing/telling me where to go. The staff was absolutely magnificent. They offered amazing recommendations and definitely knew the menu inside-out. FOOD: We did the four course prix fix, which was $151. The presentation of each plate was clean and each component in each dish complemented each other well. -SERIOLE: The presentation of this dish was rather intriguing. I love beets and I didn't know how amazing it tasted with hamachi! -PIGEONNEAU: I might have liked this dish more than my main one actually. I loved the crunchy exterior of the squab. -Can't remember the name for the last dish, but it was lamb. I'm glad that the lamb wasn't too gamey, but I thought this dish was just okay. Since I came for my birthday, they offered a birthday dessert on top of my dessert course in the prix fix! The dessert that I ordered was their version of a tiramisu. Instead of using espresso, they used more lighter flavors such as cinnamon. This was definitely one of my favorite tiramisu!! If I recall correctly, there are apple bits in here as well. I highly recommend this dessert if it is available on the menu! OVERALL: I was afraid that we weren't going to be full off of the prix fix menu, but I was very very wrong. They brought out so many additional little plates for us that by dessert, I could barely finish it. I'm still thinking about their tiramisu dessert that they have. Before we left, they also gave us a take home present of one of their Cannele! It was such a pleasure dining here during my visit to NYC!
We expected to be amazed and we really were. We had a wonderful time in the lounge seating, which we think is a great secret of Daniel. In the lounge you can order a pre-fix menu, al a carte, or a tasting menu so you have more flexibility than in the main dining room. The cozy atmosphere of the lounge is very romantic. The service was impeccable from start to finish. The food? Amazing. Beautifully plated and elegant dishes that were still filling and satisfying. Truly a memorable meal and the perfect place for a special occasion when you simply want the best. Is there a price premium? Absolutely. Should you make reservations well in advance? Of course. Is it worth it? For this diner, yes. Months after this meal we still talk about it. Truly the height of modern cuisine and the best restaurant in New York City.
#1,385 to review...and that is from people that took the time to praise this incredible restaurant. Our first time here; my amazing fiance is a chef and owns restaurants in DC/VA/MD and we were both so excited to experience this incredible "symphony" because I am almost at a loss for words. I could go on about all the food we ate and describe it in detail - everyone has fantastic stories about their meals (except the mean Yelpers). My thoughts: -Beautiful room, with this wall of stunning colorful flowers. -Bernardaud China, French name of course! -Bread Service. I was told they don't count the number of times guests ask for more bread but seriously...they must...i had three portions and three pats of the butter! Having been on a low carb diet lately, I knew I would indulge. The butter...ohmygosh...and the seeded bread (warm of course) -Bathrooms: spotless and beautiful - enough said - i always check out the bathrooms! -Service. Unparalleled. Always anticipating, never hovering. An art form to be experienced. Genuinely hospitable and describing each dish as it was served to us - in detail. I can barely describe what ingredients are in my homemade Mac N Cheese. -Outstanding wine list. Even though we didn't purchase a bottle of wine, the sommelier still treated us the same as if we had purchased a bottle of Domaine Leflaive, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2014. -Plating and the beauty of the food presentation - surpassed only when you eat it.  I imagine there is barely ANY WASTE from the plates by the time they make it back to the wash area. -A darling little velveteen purse stool that you can rest your purse - they think of everything! -Desserts. Desserts. For goodness sakes, you have a 2017 James Beard award winning Pastry Chef who started with the Daniel Boulud in 2001 and is now the Executive Pastry Chef at Daniel. Ghaya Oliveira is so talented! -Jackets required for men - yeh!!! -Personalized menu to take home with full descriptions of our meal and the date. Surprised - what a great way to remember the evening. -Each of us received a little brown box that housed a  Cannele. OK...am i the ONLY person who has never had one of these? I tried it the next morning after my 6 mile run in Central Park (needed to burn off those incredible desserts) and my eyes may have rolled back in my head. My fiance caught me eating his too!! Is there any way to purchase these and have them shipped here to DC...or wait..does DBGB DC have them? I'm going to call them! After dinner, one of the nicest managers, Daniel, asked my fiance if we would like to see the kitchen and meet the chef. It was truly an honor. It was the middle of a busy Friday during service and we met Executive Chef Jean-Francois Bruel and Eddy Leroux, Chef de Cuisine. They took the time to take pictures with us - really! How do they look so relaxed?! I think i was sweating more than them! Then we were taken up to The Skybox. Pinch me! This is the birds eye view of the DANIEL kitchen, a private dining space. Personal pictures in an intimate setting. We were truly blessed to experience this restaurant. Truly.
