One of New York’s most celebrated Michelin-starred chefs is preparing a massive new project for Madison Avenue.
Daniel Boulud is well known in the culinary scene as one of America’s leading culinary authorities. Originally from Lyon, Chef Boulud moved to New York in 1982 and quickly cultivated a reputation as one of the city’s most prominent chefs. From 1984 – 1992, Chef Boulud served as Executive Chef at the iconic restaurant Le Cirque, earning a coveted four-star review from The New York Times and eventually winning the James Beard Award for “Best Chefs in America” in 1992. These accolades enabled him to open his flagship restaurant DANIEL in 1993 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
After launching Daniel to worldwide acclaim, Chef Boulud has since established a massive culinary empire, operating multiple popular restaurant concepts across the city and the world at large. Some of his most recognizable concepts include Bar Boulud, De Bistro Moderne, Epicerie Boulud, Joji, Le Pavillon, and Le Gratin. And that’s just in New York! Chef Boulud’s empire spans multiple continents, and he currently operates successful restaurants in places like Miami, Montreal, Dubai, Singapore, Toronto, and The Bahamas. Today though, New Yorkers can look forward to some special news, as Chef Boulud has just announced his latest plans for an exciting new project in the city.
Chef Boulud has just announced his intention to develop two new French-inspired concepts at One Madison Avenue, a new high-rise tower in the Flatiron District located at 23 East 22nd Street. The first concept to launch in the space will be a French-inspired steakhouse, which will feature an open kitchen concept and a wood-fired grill designed by the famed Rockwell Group. The second concept, which will also be designed by Rockwell Group, will be a French cafe and market that will sell fresh produce, gourmet options, seasonal ingredients, and prepared meals. The market will take up 9,500 square feet on the ground floor, while the steakhouse will take up 6,500 square feet.
Additionally, Boulud will also manage the food and beverage for an exclusive 7,000 square foot tenant lounge, available exclusively for building residents. The team will also be developing an 11,000 square foot roof deck that will feature a stunning vista of Madison Square Park and 5,400 square-foot interior event space, which will offer catering by Chef Boulud.
At the moment, the team is hoping to have the new concepts open to the public sometime in 2024. For more information, you can follow Chef Daniel Boulud on Instagram as he and his team prepare to develop the new space.
