Bar Boulud, Chef Daniel Boulud’s casual Upper West Side bistro, serves seasonal French cuisine on both a la carte and prix fixe menus. While the restaurant’s cellar contains wines of Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, the sleek, modern dining room features a tasting table and communal seating at the charcuterie bar. Diners can also enjoy their lunch, dinner or weekend brunch on the outdoor terrace, just across from Lincoln Center.
NY Mag writes, "designed to resemble a swanky wine cellar, the long, chalk-colored room seats 100, most of them at elegantly utilitarian blonde-wood booths and an extended, slightly cramped, first-come-first-served bar. The menu is crowded with old brasserie standbys, like steak-frites, boudin blanc, and coq au vin, none of which costs over $35."
