Bouley is a maligned restaurant in the upper NY tier of dining. While most everyone recognizes it should be a great place, there are often complaints of amateur mistakes. However, I was assured by some dining friends that the restaurant is among the best in the country. Fair enough, I made a reservation and they (long-time customers) warned the Maitre’D I was on my way.
I asked them to cook for me, negotiated 7 courses, and we were off.
1. Apple bread
This bread was incredible – warm, toasty, & sweet.
