The new year promises to be an exciting one for Daniel Boulud. The celebrity chef has planned to open a host of new restaurants across the United States.
In an interview with Zagat the chef revealed he will be opening an outpost of DB Brasserie at The Venetian in Las Vegas in spring 2014. That will be followed by an outpost of DBGB in Washington, DC slated for the summer. Other plans in the works include opening addtional locations of Epicerie Boulud across Manhattan.
"2014 is going to be a fun year! I'm returning to two cities that I love, Washington DC and Las Vegas. DC was my first home as a young chef when I arrived in America. Being able to return to that city years later with a restaurant of my own is the ultimate homecoming. And Las Vegas has always been a dynamic international food destination - I'm excited to be part again of the fraternity of great chefs there," the chef told Zagat.
Boulud recently celebrated the 20th anniversay of his eponymous restaurant in New York City, which ranks 29th in the World's 50 Best Restaurants list sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna. His restaurant empire stretches across North America, Asia and Europe.
