On Tuesday in New York, Restaurant DANIEL hosted a luncheon to debut the opening of the Art Deco-inspired bar by the French crystal company Lalique. The event was designed in collaboration with Chef Daniel Boulud to present an elevated dining environment decorated with artisanal crystal creations, and an immersive beverage served in the bespoke bar. Chef Daniel Boulud worked closely with Lalique to imbue the crystal glass creations, while special guests enjoyed a Michel- starred lunch, including a crab salad, salmon, and warm madeline cookies.
