For over a decade, the boisterous David Bouley has been turning heads (and emptying wallets) at this expense account-worthy, New French treasure in TriBeCa. The Connecticut native trained at some of the world's best kitchens in both New York and Paris, and that top-tier training shows. The red, barrel-vaulted ceilings provide a vaguely kingly atmosphere for Bouley's award-winning service and elevated cuisine, with standout dishes focused on impeccably sourced seasonal ingredients. Keep your elbows off the table while tucking into organic baby lamb with eggplant moussaka, roasted Atlantic halibut with baked organic beets, black sea bass in sea scallop crust, and organic Long Island duckling with lavender-honey glaze.
Best for French Because: David Bouley's temple to haute gastronomie in trendy TriBeCa stands the test of time.
