Officially the dress code at chef Daniel Boulud’s Boulud Sud is casual, but most of the people dining there step it up a notch and, on any given afternoon, you can see businessmen power lunching in full suits. Ladies should keep it simple in a modest dress, smart twin set or pant suit, though if you showed up in jeans and a T-shirt the staff wouldn’t turn you away. At night, you tend to see people in attire that is more formal, which is most likely due to the guests attending the opera, ballet or concerts at Avery Fisher Hall. Of course, if you come in when the show is on, around 8 to 10 p.m., the crowd is more nonchalant.
