If you have ever eaten at one of Daniel Boulud's establishment, you know what to expect. So what can I expect from his "epicerie?" Exactly just the same but made to go. Sure it may be pricer than your average deli, but then again what deli in near Central Park comes cheap in that vicinity.
From paté, foie gras, salads , sandwiches, to jewel like desserts, Epicerie Boulud is the perfect stop before your Central Park luncheon. Conveniently packaged for on the go, or hang out by their bar and watch the people toot in and around Lincoln Center. If you can't fork your wallet for his fine dining, this comes close. The service is cordial but efficient. I once overheard the bar-tender chatting away telling her life story. I usually thought it was the customer's who often vent.
The bar has a sausage and oyster bar. If the dining establishments around the Lincoln Center are out of the question, this is a good accessible alternative.
Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Credit cards accepted, no seating, but standing room available. Soups and sandwiches to go, great for house-warming gifts.
