Boulud Sud is Chef Daniel Boulud’s vibrant Mediterranean-inspired restaurant featuring flavors that travel the entire Mediterranean region from the shores of Southern France to the coast of North Africa and beyond. There is an emphasis on grilled fish and lamb as well as an abundance of fresh vegetables on menu sections entitled “De La Mer”, “Du Jardin” and “De La Ferme”. The Mid-Century Modern interiors, including a spacious bar and lounge, are decorated in tones of sunflower yellow and slate grey. The light filled space is framed by floor to ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings, pear wood paneling and terrazzo floors, as well as works by famed artist Vik Muniz. The restaurant, with an entrance on West 64th Street, is just steps from Manhattan’s Lincoln Center and is adjacent to Bar Boulud and Épicerie Boulud.

In my view, this is the least successful of Boulud's many NYC restaurants, when it comes to the food. (The decor and ambiance are excellent.) While the emphasis on Mediterranean dishes is appreciated, the result is a bit bland, and not as authentic seeming as Bar Boulud next door in its point of view. That said, try the dishes that lean towards middle-eastern, as they are far more successful than those that sound more like what you might find in southern France. On one recent visit, I had a tuna confit brik that had great Tunisian flavors. Same applies to the desserts, some of which are really special. A quick note on my rating scale: 5 stars = exceptional food & service; 4 stars = excellent food & service; 3 stars = decent to good (top-of-the-line for fast service restaurants); 2 stars = mediocre; 1 star = not recommended.

We found this restaurant by chance, and whata great place. Mediterranean inventive kitchen with an outstanding service. Everything was just perfect.

The food here is mediocre. Flavors are bland and the food is over salted. The seating arrangements are also very cramped.

Food was very good. Service was terrible. My date ordered a glass of wine and after a long delay I had to ask the waiter over to find out why it hadn't arrived, not to mention why he didn't take our order. I told him for a very expensive restaurant, I would expect better service.. He then got a bottle, brought it to the table and poured a very stingy glass. Later I tried to get his attention while he was at the adjourning table, and he wouldn't turn around. I hadn't been nasty to him and can't understand why he didn't try to give us good service. After dinner he brought two complimentary desserts, which I really didn't want, so I sent one back. Then we ordered coffee, and he managed to not bring milk with it. My God, at a diner they bring milk when you order coffee. I don't know what the problem was, but I would never go back.

I love tea and I love pastries. This place does both and more very well. If you're into photography, the cafe has beautiful white marble tables and ample window lighting. You're welcome.

Beautiful room, excellent service, flavorful food, extensive and expensive wine list. Highly recommend the artichoke appetizer and unique grapefruit desert.

I'm not a person who is easily impressed by gimmicks and tricks,* but the bartender at Boulud Sud got me with the Spiked Apple. First of all, it's a single malt cocktail that is subtle and delicious. That in itself is a feat.** But even more astonishing is that they go to the trouble of making an APPLE out of ICE, complete with a cinnamon stick stem, and using it as a glass within your glass for your cocktail. A more perfect fall cocktail, I don't think there is. And if single malts scare you, try the From the Field (Honey Comb and Lavender Infused Plymouth Gin, Lemon). I found the food to be a bit less consistent than the cocktails, but there are certainly high points. The charred squid stuffed with chorizo was a meager portion, but excellent; the lamb loin was beautifully cooked and as tender as can be; the Iberico ham predictably melts until your mouth is weeping with porky deliciousness; and the farrotto side was so rich and flavorful that our table ordered another, despite being full to bursting. Each item that emerges from the Boulud Sud kitchen is artfully plated, and there is clearly no lack of skill. That said, there are certain Items that I probably wouldn't revisit on a return trip: the daurade (their spelling, not mine), the crispy artichokes and the rabbit porchetta (not at all what I was expecting/hoping for; it was a cold terrine, which is unlike any porchetta I've ever heard of), for instance. Truly, nothing was bad. We cleaned every plate and enjoyed every bite. Do I think there are better options in NYC at this price point? Certainly. However, the service is impeccable, the cocktails impressive, the restaurant itself gorgeous, and if you have the means you should treat yourself to a truly fine dining experience.
