Bouley’s private dining room may not be as ostentatious as its extravagantly decorated upstairs main dining area, but the subdued design sets a similarly refined and relaxed mood. Vaulted ceilings top this space within the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, befitted with several twinkling chandeliers. Burgundy is the ruling hue here, but hints of color emerge thanks to pastels created by Claude Chevalley to complement the main dining room’s paintings. Finishing off the modest display are several 18th-century walnut doors with original wrought-iron fleur de lis hinges. The private dining room can hold 50 people for a meal or 70 people for a reception.
