Cafe Boulud’s has one of the best menu in town, the menu changes often and is categorize by different themes and seasons. Food is always good and consistent. Although a bit cramped, the decor is simple and clean.

Stuffy but Consistent

Café Boulud is the Boulud gem tucked away on a beautiful street on the Upper East Side inside The Surrey hotel. While the room and clientele can feel a bit stuffy sometimes, the food is reliably good (and very Boulud). While you might not be coming here for the most exciting gourmet fare, the food is upscale, consistently well-prepared, and beautifully presented. And the ladies who lunch there seem to be enjoying it perfectly.

  • There are a few tables in front of the restaurant, but they feel a little too close to the street for comfort.
  • Try to get a table at the opposite end of the room from the bar. Waiting diners can make some tables slightly cramped.
  • If you're feeling flush, the best way to experience the food is via the tasting menu. Running nine courses and at least two hours, it's a real adventure.

From OpenTable: 

CAFÉ BOULUD features a French-American menu inspired by Chef Daniel Boulud's four culinary muses: la tradition, classic French cuisine; la saison, seasonal delicacies; le potager, the vegetable garden; and le voyage, the flavors of world cuisines.

In addition to dinner seven nights, we feature a $37 two-course prix-fixe lunch six days a week, and brunch on Sundays. The restaurant is both a neighborhood gem and a destination for food lovers in search of casually elegant dining. Two private dining rooms seating 18 guest each are available for your private entertaining needs, and may be combined to accommodate 40.

The restaurant's adjacent BAR PLEIADES serves inventive cocktails and a luxurious bar menu from 3 pm onwards.
