Chef and owner Daniel Boulud imparts his culinary expertise at Daniel by creating market-driven menus that reflect New York's changing seasons. Putting an emphasis on creativity, French icon Boulud abandons the pretentiousness that sometimes creeps into French cooking and prepares no-nonsense, elegant dishes. Market specials grace Daniel's menu every evening, in addition to seasonal menus that change every few months. It's that extra nod to seasonality that separates Daniel from other French institutions worldwide. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant's executive chef Jean François Bruel has worked with Boulud since 1996, and he shares the same philosophy on cooking and presentation as the master himself.
