First the positives, the higher tier wine pairing for $225 and the breads are excellent.  Our sommelier served a variety of interesting wines that paired well with the food.  Unfortunately the actual food leaves a bit to be desired, my wife and I did the tasting and came away with the feeling like the chefs at Daniel are trying too hard with some of the dishes and messing up the ingredients.  Also the seating for 2 people is awful, the 2 person tables are stuck along a narrow corridor between the kitchen and the main dining room so expect a lot of foot traffic constantly so you should come with a larger group to sit in the nicer central dining area. Poularde - a mosaic terrine that would have been delicious if the layers were blended together a little more.  It seemed jarring to have such large chunks of completely different textures and flavors. Seriole - citrus cured hamachi.  It was tasty, but not much to write home about. Huitre - Partially cooked oysters, this was arguably the absolute worst dish.  The breading on the oysters was oily and soggy which did nothing for the cooked part of it while completely destroying the nice flavor of the raw shellfish.  Additionally the oysters did not taste extremely fresh either from the cooking method or just in general.  Definitely skip this if you have the choice. Saumon - Sous vide salmon finished on a grill.  The salmon was tender and moist, not bad, nothing crazy. Pigeonneau - The squab's flavor was excellent, but I'm not sure if they left this dish sitting too long before serving?  The skin seemed like it would have been crispy, but had cooled and softened up a bit before they served the dish. Cochon de Lait - My wife swapped out the wagyu with this on the tasting. Suckling pig which was cooked well, but they removed the skin to make thin strips of pork rind as a garnish which is a shame.  Suckling pig skin is absolutely incredible off a roast pig and the fried pork rinds were just an afterthought and a poor use of the skin. Wagyu - Great piece of steak, but not high quality wagyu which is what I expect for this price point.  The meat itself was quite lean and juicy, but you don't eat wagyu for lean cuts, you eat it for the intense marbling.  This was indistinguishable from just any other good piece of steak. Dessert - Really mediocre I forgot what the dishes were, but the best thing were the fresh baked madeleine cookies so shout out to the baker again for being amazing. All in all, not the worst, wine pairing was good, bakery was excellent, actual dishes were mediocre.  Honestly if the baker just opened a side restaurant to serve gourmet sandwiches on his bread he'd make a killing.
Great meal from first to last. We came here for their 4-course prix-fixe. It was too pricy for a regular meal, but great for a special occasion, especially because of all the desserts you get at the end, not to mention the bread. What a great selection: there were baguettes, brioche, 3-seed, garlic parmesan, and buckwheat, which I thought was the tastiest. Most people liked the brioche, which was really buttery and flaky. They started us out with a parmesan sablé with blue cheese, which was okay. Then came a canapé of Long Island citrus fluke, not bad. I had the Chilled Carrot Velouté with Peekytoe Crab (chermoula cream, confit ginger, lovage oil) for the first course. It was very creamy, but too salty for my taste. Good thing they gave us plenty of bread. Then I had the Vodka Flambéed Hudson Valley Foie Gras (Pennsylvania pawpaw, gingerbread chrysanthemum salad). This was my first time trying foie gras. It was good, but too rich for me; I would have liked it better in a small dose. It would work well in a tasting menu. Then came the Quebec Roasted Suckling Pig (Heermance Farm carrots, Swiss chard, "Sauce Crècy"). It was alright, cooked pretty well. I liked how soft the carrots were. For dessert, I had the Grand Blanco Cacao (raspberry jam, cocoa nib sablé, liquorice dark chocolate ice cream). It was tasty, the ice cream made it special. They also gave us little squares of flavored chocolates and some sort of biscuit. The best were the warm madeleines they ended us with. So tasty! As a parting gift, they presented us with their traditional Cannelé. Had it the next day and it was delicious! Service was excellent, as expected. Nice table decor also.
This has been a long overdue review. I'm looking at photos on my phone and saw some from Daniel and it felt like we owe them a review with the amazing experience that my boyfriend and I had here. I don't remember the name of the staff but everyone was nice and approachable. I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday, we are both vegetarians and it took me a while to find a good fine dinning restaurant that offers vegetarian pre fix course/wine pairing. With that said, we ended up doing the 7-course wine pairing. It cost about $1200 with tax and tip, and I have to say, you get what you pay for!!! Our dinner lasted for over 4 hrs, and after that, they gave us a personal menu of what we had with the list of all the wines we had. I will most certainly go back here!!!
