Lyon’s loss is New York’s gain. This elegant Upper East Side restaurant is the flagship eatery of French chef Daniel Boulud. It’s not cheap, but then again, if you don’t like gambling, this three-Michelin-star eatery is a winner chicken dinner every time. The cuisine may be French, but it’s not stodgy. In fact, what comes out of Daniel’s kitchen is new and inspiring yet offering hints of the past as well as some international flair. A duo of beef, for example, matches Wagyu tenderloin with Blank Angus short ribs to great effect.
