10BEST Says

French: This Central Park stunner is still sparkling after all these years. First opened in 1993, the fine dining institution has introduced impeccable French fare courtesy of Michelin mainstay Daniel Boulud to two decades of Upper East Side diners. The restaurant received a significant facelife from a 2008 redesign by Adam Tihany (One & Only Cape Town, Dinner London), bringing a fresh energy to a dining room filled with the expense account-wielding, Brioni suit- and Hermes scarf-wearing set . By all counts, Boulud's fare is as unrelenting as ever, with signature dishes like roasted halibut, served with Thai basil and a mellow yogurt-curry sauce, providing an indulgent argument for white tablecloth fine dining.

Best Restaurants: At Daniel, Chef Daniel Boulud uses seasonal inspiration to create an innovative take on traditional French fare. Enjoy signature dishes like Slow Baked Black Sea Bass with Sarawak Pepper and Duo of Beef in an atmosphere of European aristocracy. Daniel's signature style earned the restaurant four stars from the New York Times and three from Michelin 2012. TRAIN: 6 to 68th St-Hunter College
