Cafe Bouley is one of the three Daniel Bouley restaurants located in TriBeca. There is the Bakery located across the street and Secession, located on the same street as the bakery but down the block. Cafe Bouley is the less formal of the two restaurants, and was originally Daniel Bouley’s cooking school; but he transformed it into a restaurant. The menu is quite simple and mainly contains Continental dishes, and some Asian inspired dishes (such as miso soup). The food is great and isn’t extraordinarily expensive (think about $10 an appetizer and $20 max. for an entree, but then again that’s the lunch prices). I love how the kitchen was right in front of you, and you could see the one chef cook everything. Its a small place and gets crowded easily, but I wouldn’t say you NEED a reservation (I was a party of two and I got seated immediately). Next time you’re in TriBeca, check out Cafe Bouley!
