The restauranteur's sublime Bar Boulud is located just feet from Lincoln Center. Might we suggest a working lunch between shows?

So Daniel, how did you spend your summer?
Every August I go home to Lyon for a while to see my family—but mostly to cook in the wood-burning oven on my parent’s farm. Wish I could have one back here in New York!

We hear you recently took an inaugural trip to Tennessee to visit Blackberry Farm. How did you like the South?
I learned that southern hospitality is not a myth. This was my first time in Tennessee. If I could, I’d go back to Blackberry Farm every weekend. It’s definitely the most charming, romantic, and elegant spot in the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s also the only place I’ve ever been in the Great Smoky Mountains.

What are your plans for Fashion Week?
Attend a few shows—definitely Vivienne Tam’s—and watch the models cross Broadway to Bar Boulud. If we can get ABT ballerinas to eat boudin blanc, maybe we can get some Fashion Week models to sip Mâcon?

What’s on deck at Bar Boulud?
We’re opening a new grilling-themed restaurant next door this coming February. There will also be a retail shop, where you can buy our house-made charcuterie, breads, and pastries, as well as great cheeses, soups, sandwiches, and salads to go.
