Lunch at Bouley is a ridiculous steal with the tasting menu of $36 they offer. I mean, look at how much food we got! I loved the pumpkin soup amuse and the halibut with pine nut. I was even compelled to order chicken for my main and I was glad I did, for it was fork-tender and actually tasted like chicken. At this price, we'll have to make this a more regular stop in our weekend schedule.
And yes, the lobby does smell wonderfully apple-y.
