If you were hoping to get Daniel’s fine cuisine in a to-go bag, you’ll have to rethink your dinner plans because the French restaurant does not offer takeout. However, if you’re looking for something more casual than the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York restaurant’s main dining room, consider taking a seat at the bar or in the lounge. Both rooms, which are livelier and more laid back than the main dining room, offer à la carte dishes rather than the traditional prix fixe menu. Stop in for a cocktail from the innovative list — like the Smokey Bandit, a mixture of Ilegal Joven mezcal, jalapeño, orange curacao, fresh pineapple and lime juice — or an appetizer and dessert. The lounge at Daniel has become a favorite among residents from the surrounding Upper East Side neighborhood looking for a delicious bite.
