Does Bouley offer any special gifts from the chef?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Not only does chef David Bouley try to visit his diners’ tables during their meal at his eponymous Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star eatery, but he also gifts a number of sumptuous treats throughout the experience. You’ll begin your meal with a seasonal canapé or — a welcome from the chef. During our most recent visit, we were treated to two sumptuous canapés served before the menu is presented. One was a lovely beet puree with a blue cheese foam and walnut crunch, and the other was a quenelle of aligot (think cheesy French mashed potatoes) atop a cracker with a drizzling of truffle sauce. Prior to dessert, your server will bring you a fruity soup (think strawberry-rhubarb) to cleanse the palate, followed by a delicious assortment of petit fours. And, if you’re lucky, you might even receive a take-home treat, like zesty lemon teacakes to enjoy with your morning coffee the following day (though this doesn’t always happen). We promise that Bouley, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, will not let you leave looking for a New York slice on the way home.
