Boulud Sud Is A Sure Thing!
We can add another “HIT” to Daniel Boulud’s empire. Boulud Sud is one of the best performances around Lincoln Center. The room exudes a clean, casual elegance with a high comfort level. Boulud Sud delivers a wonderful collection of inspired Mediterranean dishes (wandering to Italy, France, Spain, Greece and Turkey ) that are beautifully plated. There were so many enticing things on the menu, so we decided to go with a few shareable snacks and large plates.
Octopus A La Plancha- Cooked to perfection, and every bite was full of flavor.
Chickpea and Eggplant Hummus- Tasty and creamy.
Saffron Linguini with Razor Clams- Strikingly good! The lemon and buttery coating was amazing.
Turbot- Artfully prepared.
Broccoli Rabe- Unexpected peppery kick.
Saffron Fregola- This is rare on menus, and it didn’t disappoint. Great texture.
France Chateau de Pourcieux, Cotes de Provence 2012- Rose´ – Lovely and refreshing.
THE SWEET SPOT:
Chocolate-Olive Oil Cake with Poached Apricots- Average.
Almond-Pistachio Cake with Strawberries and Ice Cream- It was just as good as it looks. The combination of the moist cake with berries and ice cream was fantastic.
Boulud Sud- 20 West 64th Street between Broadway and Central Park West / 212-595-1313
