Daniel Boulud's flagship restaurant celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2009 and its 10th in its present location with a renovation by renowned designer Adam Tihany, who has overlaid the neoclassical decor with sleek, modern touches. But while guests at Daniel are greeted by dramatic new lighting, a contemporary color scheme and a new display cellar, it'd be hard to improve on the star-quality dining experience. Executive Chef Jean François Bruel still runs the kitchen, executing Boulud's seasonal French cuisine with exacting care. (Think red winebraised short ribs with shallot confit and seared rib-eye with spinach subric and sautéed porcinis, paired with a 2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Laurent Charvin.) Chef/sommelier Phillipe Marchal, under the direction of Daniel Johnnes, mans the cellar with an alacrity befitting the son and grandson of Alsatian winemakers.
