FoodPorn Friday: Daniel
“Food should have soul, but the soul is not always in every dish. Sometimes dishes are created because you want some interesting contrast, you want to create something different with the ingredient you have. But that does not mean the dish has found its soul yet.”
So speaks the legendary Daniel Boulud.
Probably my favorite restaurant, oh, EVER, three star Michelin rating Daniel hardly needs anyone to sing its praises, as its status in the restaurant world can only be described as legend (wait for it…) ARY! With a vegetarian tasting menu to die for, service that’s the epitomie of what fine dining should be, and an exquisite combination of flavors in bite sized portions that are simply perfect for variety on the palate sans the “I’m so stuffed I can’t move” feeling, Daniel is truly the creme de la creme.
We first went here for dinner the night we got engaged, and immediately decided we’d return every January 11th to reminisce that soulful, amazing night…food included.
Let the food porn begin*…

*apologies for the awful lighting in these…the room was full of candlelight and romantic couples wining and dining, so I didn’t want to be “that girl” using the flash:-)
