Café Boulud is hands down one of the city’s most refined restaurants, with the menu an ongoing collaboration between Daniel himself and his team. I’ve written extensively about my dining experiences with their special tasting menu- so check out my blog post here for the tasty details.
Not feeling like a lengthy fancy meal? No problem. Daniel Boulud has an option for that, too! Downstairs from the Café Boulud is the more casual joint, d Bar, a lively lounge with bar-friendly fare, an extensive wine list and unique mixed cocktails (check out their sparkling Queen B!)
To celebrate the launch of the city’s Winterlicious event, I had an opportunity to check out Café Boulud’s prix-fixe menu.
Their dinner menu boasts three courses for only $45, which is pretty ridiculously amazing considering the quality of the dishes. Just a wee side note for my gentlemen readers- if you need some brownie points, this would be a good bet.
Check out some of the fantastic dishes they’re featuring this year!
