Do you need a place to celebrate?Last night was our Eleventh Year dating anniversary and Randolph, our Golden puppy wanted to send us to Daniel for a celebratory dinner. Funny how the pooch did not give me any money for the dinner.
Daniel is located at 60 E. 65th Street between Park and Madison
There is something about the minute you get to the beautiful revolving door at the entrance that is magical.
We have been to 100’s of restaurants all over the world and Daniel is World class. The people that work there are just not cooks, waiters, captains or Maitre D’s working just to get a pay check, rather they are there to continue to hone their skills for the love of food and service.
We have never had a poor performance from Daniel and his crew.
We had an amazing Lucien Crochet Sancerre that was perfectly chilled.
A cool heirloom tomato salad with basil oil was divine.
The winner of the evening was an appetizer of scallops dusted with Chorizo- it was one of those dishes that you eat where every component makes sense and you just want to devour the entire dish.
The restaurant spends thousands of dollars per week on fantastic flowers and their china purchases per year must be out of this world.
This restaurant is not inexpensive, but if you need to go and celebrate a special occasion while you are in NYC, this is at the top!One secret note- if you go to the bar and have a bottle of wine and a yummy cheese plate, you will still be served in luxury at a significant discount!
