A very grown-up restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Daniel Boulud’s flagship Daniel maintains standards of service and cuisine — French haute cuisine, very much an endangered species today — that hark back to an earlier era. But the cooking is up-to-date and really, really good, and the menu changes daily. If you are lucky enough to score a reservation, you may sample dishes as part of a four-course $135 or seven-course $225 prix fixe menu under the watchful eye of executive chef Jean François Bruel. Slow-baked Jade Tiger abalone with endive, fingerling potatoes, and white sturgeon caviar; butter-poached halibut with braised artichoke, Tellicherry pepper, and sorrel cream; and glazed sweetbreads with potato gnocchi, Louisiana crayfish, sweet pea purée, cockscombs, and porcini are among the dishes you might be served.

One of the finest New Frenchies in the nation. Be careful, but don't dawdle -- that edible sculpture made from seared foie gras with sliced kumquats ain't gonna dismantle itself. [BlackBook]

Daniel Boulud hangs works from his private collection, including Valds, Genoves, and Conroy. There is also a suite of photographs from Weingarten's 6:30 AM series featured in the Bellecour Room.

Great value white: Jurancon Sec (Southwest), based on gros manseng grape; yields intensely flavored wines. For a big red, consider the Mas Jullien (Languedoc), a grenache blend. Brilliant! agwine.com

Spacious room. Incredible staff. Expansive wine list. Lobster comes three ways, and we suggest the Lobster Samosa. You won't regret it.

This Michelin rated restaurant makes for a great special occasion dinner. The best value is had in the 3 course prix fixe, or you can splurge for the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing.
