One thing may surprise you upon first entering Daniel: the magnitude of the dining room. It’s one of the largest Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York restaurants, boasting a 3,300-square-foot main dining room that seats 116 guests while still exuding sophistication. The dining room is sectioned into a central, sunken seating area and a surrounding mezzanine, where you’ll get the chance to casually observe the who’s who of New York’s elite as they nosh on dishes like roasted duck with chanterelles and cherry chutney. If you’re looking for something less formal, try the lounge, which fits 24 people, or the main bar, which accommodates 30. Both offer the à la carte dinner menu, so you won’t have to miss out on that duck or the rest of the fabulous French cuisine.
