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 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.
