I apologize for the lack of new posts recently; with the assignments now over and exams looming in a week, I thought that I’ll quickly publish one of the drafts in my ever-growing back log. Do expect new posts after the 16th of June – I have so many new places that I am just dying to share with you.
This entry is of my meal from many (many) months back and to be exact, end of December 2010. But, it was one of the meals that had me from the get-go and I knew that I had to pen my thoughts down. It was affordable, unpretentious French bistro cuisine at its best.
Part of the Daniel Boulud empire, Cafe Boulud NYC was one my last minute dining destinations while I was in New York back in December 2010. A last minute choice, yes, but a bad decision, it was not. In fact, this meal was one of the more memorable during my short trip to New York.
Do read my other New York entries: (1) Eleven Madison Park (2) Momofuku Noodle Bar (3) Le Bernardin (4) Michael’s (5) Marea
So, this is my first post on the Napa Valley, California. Napa Valley – I’ve missed you so; The breath of fresh air, a respite from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco (AND Singapore) and the food and oh, the wines and their pairings. Redd is helmed by Executive Chef Richard Reddington, who has worked in the kitchens of high-profile restaurants such as Park Avenue Café, Rubicon, Spago Beverly Hills, Jardinière, and Auberge du Soleil and counts Daniel Boulud and Wolfgang Puck as his mentors. P.s. No need for guesses as to where the name of the restaurant came from.
