The Low Down


Fun Fact: Mssr. Boulud may be the last of the great French chef-proprietors who made his bones the old-fashioned way, learning cooking from Roger Verget, Georges Blanc, and the Troigrois brothers, and front-of-the-house stagecraft from Sirio Maccioni.

Where to Sit: The chef's glass-enclosed skybox, a celeb favorite, sits above the kitchen. It's available for four Monday through Wednesday, with an eight-course tasting menu required ($1,000 total).

Know Before You Go: Two prix-fixe menus are offered. Three courses for $98 or six courses for $165.

Know Before You Go: Two prix-fixe menus are offered. Three courses for $105 or six courses for $175.

What to Drink: Wine pairings ensure a perfect match and can be less expensive than purchasing several bottles. Pairings range in price, but average $80 to $90 per person.

Look Good: No reservation? Grab a seat at the bar and sample a superbly mixed cocktail.
