Most of the restaurants in the city fit themselves into already existing spaces. Not this one. It was part of the plans for a new Grand Central Terminal-adjacent skyscraper from near the beginning, so owner/chef Daniel Boulud was able to arrange the glass walls to perfectly frame the spire of the Chrysler Building, and have mature olive trees craned in to give the space the feeling of an arbor. The resulting restaurant is like a long exhale after the bustle of midtown: an oasis of serenity that has pampering down pat. The staff treat each guest like a long-lost cousin and the creative, mostly pescatarian food is superb. The only sharp gasp? When you get the check.
