One of my earliest NYC restaurant memories is a trip to Cafe Boulud with my aunt & uncle who were visiting from out of town well over a decade ago. That of course was the Andrew Carmellini era and while I don’t remember anything that I ate, I must have loved it as I followed Chef Carmellini when he left to open A Voce. For no reason other the UES seems so far away I hadn’t been back since. So it was appropriate to finally return with my same relatives so many years later. Still lovely so many years later.
