On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Daniel draws the city’s most discerning diners with its elegance, gracious service and exceptional wine.
The restaurant is one of five in Manhattan to achieve The New York Times’ four-star rating, a title held only by the most elite establishments. The star at Daniel is Chef Daniel Boulud’s renowned cuisine, which finds inspiration in applying classic French culinary techniques to the finest seasonal ingredients, each dish marked with expert preparation and artistic presentation. Guests dine in Venetian Renaissance style—soaring 18-foot coffered ceilings, carved pilasters and an arcaded balcony—while private dining reaches new heights in The Bellecour Room, accommodating up to 90 guests in Daniel’s typically regal setting. For a more relaxed atmosphere, the bar and lounge provides the perfect combination of luxury and comfort—not to mention world-class cocktails before or after dinner. In Manhattan, there’s no better combination of style, cuisine and simple beauty than Daniel, which welcomes the city with four-star service.
