Description: CAFÉ BOULUD features a French-American menu inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's four culinary muses: la tradition, classic French cuisine; la saison, seasonal delicacies; le potager, the vegetable garden; and le voyage, the flavors of world cuisines. In addition to dinner seven nights, we feature a $37 two-course prix-fixe lunch six days a week, and brunch on Sundays. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 18 guest each are available for your private entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40. The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3 pm onwards. DANIEL • DB Bistro Moderne •Boulud Sud• Bar Boulud • DBGB Kitchen & Bar

“Acclaimed chef's restaurant for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you are looking to try a world-class chef's restaurant at an affordable price, visit Daniel Boulud's, Cafe Boulud in Manhattan. Compared to his other fine dining establishments, like Daniel, also in Manhattan, this one is much more affordable. We went for lunch and had the Prix fixe lunch for $43 (app, entree, dessert). Bottles of wine were available for $30. There are also 4 other parts to the menu: farmers market, Spring season, world voyager, and French classics; which are all what you would expect. The food was superb, the service, a bit leisurely, and the atmosphere, noisey. However, for the budget-conscious traveler wanting to try one of these celebrity chef establishments, this is a good way to do it.

“My favorite Hotel in NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

This was my first stay at the Surrey and could not have been happier with my selection. The rooms were beautifully appointed with upgraded decor and technology. The service was superb and the food and beverage outstanding. The location on Madison and 76 was perfect for dining, shopping and walking in the city. I am excited to return and stay at the Surrey, its a Relais & Chateaux and one of those best kept secrets in NYC.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Went to Cafe Boulud for a family dinner earlier this month and had an amazing time. The food was excellent, wine choices superb, and ambiance divine. Had the kale salad and the salmon. It was my aunt's birthday and the maître d' prepared a special dessert for her. My uncle, who is very difficult to please, was impressed by not only the food but the service. I would most certainly return.
