There’s a good chance you’ll spot chef and owner Daniel Boulud while dining at his eponymous New York restaurant, Daniel. Not only does the world-famous French chef work at his Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star flagship restaurant, he lives in the apartment above it on East 65th Street on the Upper East Side. Boulud regularly walks downstairs to expedite food orders or to chat up customers, giving the French restaurant an extra-personal flair. Charming diners is typical for the culinary icon, who runs well-known restaurants worldwide from Beijing to Vancouver to Palm Beach. If you see Boulud at the New York restaurant, don’t hesitate to say hello.
