I first heard of Daniel Rose’s cooking from his restaurant Spring in Paris. Daniel is originally from the North Shore of Chicago so I was intrigued and finally had a chance to try Spring in early 2013. I went with my friend who has lived in Paris for quite a while but is originally from Chicago. She and I both loved it and she continued to bring clients there over the years. It was a beautiful, multi-course tasting menu lunch for about 45 euros.

Daniel started posting hints at opening up Le Coucou in NYC so I made sure to stop in even though time only allowed to eat there for breakfast. I enjoy looking at restaurant interiors so a friend and I peeked into Le Coucou the night before. We were greeted so warmly when we walked in. The space was gorgeous with high ceilings and warm lighting and the restaurant was packed and lively. Breakfast was delightfully simple and I even went against my “Eggs Benedict” usual and let the server choose my breakfast.
