David Bouley once said “I don’t follow recipes”, and completed it by saying: “You won’t become a good chef by following recipes!”.
The four starred Michelin American chef, born in Connecticut, is best known for his French cuisine restaurant, Bouley.
With a fantastic background, he studied at the renowned Sorbonne in Paris. He had the opportunity to work with amazing chefs like Roger Vergé, Paul Bocuse, Joël Robuchon and Gaston Lenôtre.
Located in TriBeCa, Bouley offers French cuisine with modern Asian influences served in an elegant and intimate setting. In addition to the á la carte menu, the restaurant offers a $59 five course tasting menu for lunch. Plus, a $195 six course tasting menu for dinner.
In addition, there are tasting menus with the option of wine pairing, that you might really enjoy!
David Bouleys second restaurant, Brushstroke, also in TriBeCa, is “a joint venture between Chef Bouley and Japan’s top culinary school, The Tsuji Culinary Institute. Brushstroke offers a brilliant modern interpretation of kaiseki cuisine – a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner. Based entirely around tasting menus that change seasonally, kaiseki uses fresh ingredients to build a progression of flavors and sensations. And, with courses designed to be beautiful, delicious and surprising.”
