Brush with Fame
It's Restaurant Week in New York, which means some of the city's fanciest restaurants are offering prix-fixe lunch and dinner specials to bring in customers during the slow season. Yesterday, my boss, a coworker and I went to Bar Boulud, chef Daniel Boulud's newest restaurant, near Lincoln Center.
I ordered a cold carrot soup, chicken with caramelized onions and a chocolate mocha tart. The food was excellent. But what was even better was a little brush with celebrity: Barbara Walters came in with another woman and sat in the next booth, so she and I were back-to-back. Pretty cool, huh?
