Mr. Daniel Boulud and his team make every effort to present each course as an experience to touch the 6th sense to transcend the dining experience. World-class presentation and preparation of all dishes. Quality ingredients with a consistent depth of flavor designed to be savored with every bite. Interesting combinations of subtle texture and taste and careful construction to balance and enhance vital flavors.
The Main Dining Room is a perfect blend of upscale modern French themes and old classic chic. European ivory arches and detailed patterned ceilings complement the presented meals in the main dining room. The Bar has an understated elegance with a contemporary charm. The Lounge is has a more cozy, intimate, yet sophisticated decor to it. The Skybox is a private dining space with a bird’s eye view of Daniel’s kitchen.

Wine & Spirits
Boasting more than 25,000 bottles, their cellar ranges from exceptional old-world wines to innovative offerings by young vignerons. The wine pairings were spot on and complimented every bite thanks to the very knowledgeable sommelier. His friendly demeanor and suggestions aided in the enhancement of course meals. A true delight was the Honoratus Rioja Crianza "Aurum" Spain 2008 in our opinion.
