Daniel Boulud at Upper East Side


Since a few days you can find a very special piece of art at the 72nd street station of New York’s second avenue subway. It’s a life-size mosaic of the french chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud, created by the Brazilian artist Vik Muniz. Muniz, who is a close friend of Boulud, made up a whole series of mosaic portraits from people he knows, called “Perfect Strangers”. Boulud is pictured with a huge bag carrying fish and spring onions. The well-known chef, who set up his first restaurant DANIEL in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, that has been reopened an is nowadays known as Café Boulud, got the mosaic as reward for his three decades in zipcode 10021.
