Winning a 4 star review from the NY Times is no easy feat—but that’s just what the refined French restaurant Daniel earned—along with a host of other accolades and awards since its opening in 1999. Celebrated Chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud’s exquisite French cuisine is on display at his iconic Manhattan eatery, along with an elegant dining room enhanced by wrought iron touches, silk wall panels, and etched glass details. Located on the posh corner of 65th and Park, Daniel caters to a sophisticated clientele with gourmet palates, incorporating the freshest produce of the season into its prixe fixe menus: 3 courses are available for $105, 6 courses for $175. Favorite dishes include bone marrow-crusted filet of sole, Maine Peekytoe crab with Fuji apple, and hazelnut mousse served with salted caramel ice cream. Reservations are taken up to one month in advance, so plan ahead. —-Alexis Korman
