David Bouley was born and raised on his grandparents’ farm not far from Storrs, Connecticut. Life on the farm made an impact on him and, when combined with his French heritage, developed into an appreciation for carefully crafted healthful meals.
He learned to use fresh ingredients year round including things like late summer heirloom tomatoes, white truffles in the fall, exotic fruits in the winter, and wild ramps in the spring. So no matter what season you visit the Bouley Restaurant on Duane St., in NYC, you’re in for an unforgettably delicious experience.
