Posted back in February that tickets for the the 5th Annual “New Taste Of The Upper West Side” food festival were on sale.

Boulud Sud, Chef Daniel Boulud’s latest restaurant, has been racking up near universal praise since it opened on the UWS at 20 West 64th last May. Now here’s some more: Sam Sifton of the New York Times recently listed it as #2 on his list 2011′s top ten new restaurants.

Thought I had previously posted this, but I just realized that’s not the case. Earlier in the month Gael Greene did a full write-up of Daniel Boulud’s latest Upper West Side outpost, Boulud Sud (20 West 64th). It opened last month and EaterNY had some initial reviews soon after. Greene visited the restaurant twice, including [...]
