After taking the Parisian dining scene by storm, acclaimed chef Daniel Rose brings home the James Beard "Best New Restaurant" award for his very first stateside restaurant. Located in SoHo, the space is a gracious modern nod to fine European gastronomy, with crisp linens, fliberking candles, and whitewashed brick. Updating classical French cuisine with charm and verve, Rose shrinks the intercontinental divide separating the City of Light and the Big Apple, proving that the true essence of fine French dining can thrive in any time zone.

    Reservations were actually from somewhere else but was notified the AC was not working so we canceled and reserved here (last minute) instead, and I’m happy we did! The second we walked in we were warmly greeted, our table was still being set so we ordered drinks at the bar and were escorted to our table in less than 10 minutes. Outstanding service, drinks, and food. Never once had to ask for a refill on wine. The seating was accommodated, the room temp was comfortable. Lobster, sweetbreads, foie gras all dishes were impeccably presented and the portions were just prefect so there was no waste. This establishment lives up to its hype and we will absolutely return. 10/10 absolutely recommend!!

    Our seafood dishes, pike dumpling (actually poached pike) with lobster sauce, black sea bass in a broth, and the chef’s version of Dover sole were all superb. The baba au rhum dessert came with two bottles of rum to soak to taste, a grand touch! One of our best meals in NY.

    Le Cou Cou is always on the top of our list when we are in NY. I first met Daniel in Paris when he opened Spring. He works his culinary magic wherever he goes and inspires his team to deliver extraordinary service.

    Le Coucou is simply one of the best restaurants in NYC. If you've been, you know. And if you haven't been, you're really missing out. Go just as soon as you can. Seriously. And once you're there, whatever you do, get the Ris de Veau. I cannot stress this highly enough.

    Great experience overall for a birthday dinner for a couple. Love the service and vibe, food presentation and quality was solid for a Michelin restaurant. I would expect one more main course from the prefix menu, comparing with what we had in France, but also understandable as there are more desserts for a sweet ending.

    Very traditional, what Americans think, French food should be. Everything is pre-prepped in kitchen so allergy accommodations are limited. Lobster and quenelles were good.
