Title pretty much says it all. If you could eat at one of the three which would it be and why?

      I agree with Lucia. I like the food better at Bouley. Service and decor are also excellent.

        Have to agree. Daniel surpasses the others even though Bouley is fantastic. I may be biased though because I feel Daniel is the best in the city bar none.

        We went to Danube recently (do a search I posted a report). It's atmosphere and ambience over food, with a few exceptions. Service was excellent. I have not been to Bouley in years. I would choose Daniel because I have never been.

          Definitely not Danube. Either Daniel or Bouley, with me tending towards Daniel.

            Hopefully these links will help you make a informed decisions. Both feature pictures of what you'll be getting on the tasting menu!

            I have yet to try Daniel, but it seems Bouley will deliver more value for money as I think it's under half the price. I may be wrong...hounders feel free to correct me on this one!
