What to order at Daniel

I'm going to Daniel tonight, and although I am sure everything is wonderful, any specific recommendations off of the current menu would be greatly appreciated! It is my first time there - I'm so excited!

  1. We haven't dined from the current menu. However, Daniel always does a sensational job with any type of foie gras preparation. I love duck and squab, and the descriptions on the website of how they are currently being served sound seriously delicious. Of course, there is the famous signature: "Paupiette of Black Sea Bass in a Crisp Potato Shell." But, frankly, it doesnt really send me. When it comes to dessert, I would have a tough time deciding among all the wonderful possibilities; however, it being the season, and peaches being my favorite fruit, I'd go with that creation.

    If the tasting menu appeals to you (not shown on the website) and fits your budget, that's always an excellent way to go.

    As you said, when it comes to cuisine at Daniel, no matter what you choose, you can't go wrong.

    Enjoy and Bon Appetit!

    1. just there tues and had a fantastic meal. fois gras was superb as usual- we had the seared and the terrine. the peach dessert was unbelievable. if you can afford the tasting it's a great way to go and the wine pairing with it works well. enjoy!
