Famed French chef Daniel Boulud, most well known for his influence and restaurants in New York City (including his flagship named simply 'Daniel'), has opened his first restaurant on his home continent. Called Bar Boulud it opened in the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London just a few weeks ago on May 6th. The bistro seats 169 guests and features a retro and wine theme (including stylized wine-barrel light fixtures and black and white photos from his hometown of Lyon, France) and a charcuterie-heavy menu cooked up by a dozen chefs in an open kitchen. Guests have their choice of traditional 'in season' French dishes or Yankee styled burger and fries. The Bar Boulud in London is an outpost of the original Bar Boulud that opened in New York in 2008.
