Daniel Boulud was raised in Lyon, France on his family's farm. After working in the kitchens of some of the most prestigious chefs in Europe, including George Blanc, Michel Guérard, and Roger Vergé, he came to the United States over ten years ago. In the ensuing decade, he created fine cuisine at the Polo Restaurant, Le Régence, and finally joined world-renowned Le Cirque, where he was named Executive Chef in 1986. He has been voted Best Chef of the Year by his professional colleagues in the Chef in America Association, and under his command Le Cirque was chosen by Gault Millau as the best restaurant in the United States and was awarded four stars by the New York Times. He is consistently lauded in the press as one of the most recognized young French chefs cooking in America today. His restaurant, Daniel, opened in the spring of 1993 to immediate success and acclaim from critics and food lovers alike. In January of 1999, the restaurant moved to its spacious and luxurious new home on 65th Street at Park Avenue.
