Le Coucou • NYC

After taking the Parisian dining scene by storm, internationally acclaimed Chef Daniel Rose returned to open Le Coucou, his New York City collaboration with restaurateur Stephen Starr. The Roman and Williams-designed space is a modern with crisp linens, flickering candles and whitewashed bricks.

The diverse menu consists of a little bit of everything: Boudin Les Aldudes, blood sausage and apple; Chou Farci aux Fruits de Mer, lobster and scallop stuffed cabbage; Choucroute’ à la Juive, duckling, foie gras, daikon radish prepared Alsatian style; and Halibut, Beurre Blanc with fermented daikon. Each dish is expertly prepared and is characterized by French cuisine authenticity, a true treat for those looking for an upscale dining experience in New York City.  Updated classical French cuisine has found its niche at Le Coucou.
