Épicerie Boulud

Épicerie Boulud
1900 Broadway at West 64th Street Upper West Side+ Google Map

Chef Daniel Boulud's casual outpost is one of our favorite stops before or after Lincoln Center shows. My daughter gets a gourmet hot dog, I have a tasty salad or quiches, my son gets a hearty sandwich, we all end with colorful macarons. Counter service with limited seating; we like to go across the street to Dante Park (which usually has interesting public art) on sunny days - then come back for the artisanal gelato.
