Big Day of Fun, Part I: Bar Boulud

Boo and I enjoyed a BDoF in the city Wednesday, attending the Broadway revival of South Pacific (amazing) and dining at two different restaurants. We started with Bar Boulud, the newest addition to Daniel Boulud’s empire. It’s know for its charcuterie. And for good reason. It’s damn good charcuterie.

The restaurant is strategically located across from Lincoln Center, where the play is. We strolled across Broadway, happy that the heat wave had broken and we could choose to sit outside if we wished.

Boo laughed.

The bread came in this pretty upright basket.

Delicous rabbit pate:

My favorite was the pate grandmere, at 11 o’clock:

The rabbit is in the center. The one closest to us was a special and I don’t remember its name. There were also pickled beets and mushrooms.

We also ordered a frisee salad. After all, it comes with an egg:

Great. Chicken livers were an added bonus.

After two glasses of wine and a littley snacky snack, we were ready to hit our next destination, a Whole Foods Event in an event space near the tunnel.
