Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Octopus à la plancha
$$$, Full Bar, Mediterranean, Lincoln Square
"No surprise that a dish is perfect at Daniel, but as a fish expert, I have rarely seen a better execution of this often overworked sea creature. It's kept so simple and unadorned... Just having this dish with a glass of wine at the bar can change your day, for sure!"
Roasted Atlantic turbot
$$$$, French, Full Bar, Mediterranean, Lenox Hill
"As a former employee, Daniel holds a special place in my heart. This dish is classic and presented table-side on a block of salt. It’s the perfect blend of old school and innovation."
Charcuterie board
$$$, Outdoor Seating, French, Full Bar, Lincoln Square
"This reminds me of something that you’d make at a farm in France. It’s very rustic, unlike most of Daniel’s dishes—they tend to do classic dishes here. The texture is amazingly soft and you get to taste all of these different offals. It’s very refined, in a way that only Daniel can do it."
