“You’ll be swept off your feet” at David Bouley’s “enchanting” TriBeCa “shrine” to “first-class” French dining – rated No. 2 for Food in NYC – where “unmatched” “attention to detail” informs the “meticulously” crafted cuisine, “masterful service” and “posh”, jackets-required milieu; since such “crème de la crème” dining comes with “a bill to remember”, the $55 prix fixe lunch is “a steal.”
Chef David Bouley has no concern for your savings account, but he does have one Michelin Star for his eponymous French restaurant. At his flagship spot—where the deep-red walls, old lamps, white tablecloths, and arched entryways are more reminiscent of the coast of Italy or The Godfather than France—the tasting menu, which changes with the seasons (about $175 for six courses, $280 with wine pairing), is a gastrophile's dream. The pistachio miso marinated fresh black cod is tender with a hint of citrus. The organic Long Island duck is roasted whole and served with black Nevada dates, Hudson Valley organic hand-milled polenta, and Washington huckleberries. The forager's treasure of wild mushrooms with sweet garlic, grilled toro, and black truffle dressing is drizzled with silky foam sauce like a Pollock painting.
The menu leans heavily on seasonal ingredients, and Bouley is always dropping hints of what's on the horizon. For dessert this winter, he served a chilled fall rhubarb soup with Santa Barbara organic strawberries and buckwheat gelato, a sweet reminder that spring is around the corner. Bouley has a long list of admirers and a fiercely loyal clientele, so call a week ahead.
