La Goulue

OPENED2 DAYS AGO

After eight years, French restaurant La Goulue has finally found a second home.

Located within a few blocks of the original location in the Upper East Side, the new spot will look eerily similar to the first: owner Jean Denoyer has preserved all of the restaurant’s fixtures in a storage unit, anticipating its new home.

The Spot:

The dimensions of La Goulue’s new home are roughly the same as the original, and the site even has a little nook for the tiny bar that lived in La Goulue for 36 years before its closing. Heavy wood accents from the original space will be featured in the new 177-seat space, including the paneling, chairs, and the iconic front doors.

The Food: 

La Goulue was awarded a Michelin star for Chef Antoine Camine’s French cuisine, and he will return to La Goulue to continue his reign (in the interim, he moved over to Jean Denoyer’s other Manhattan spot, Orsay). The new menu will closely model the original, with steak or tuna tartare, Burgundy snails, roasted chicken, onion soup, steak au poivre vert, and sole meunière. The desserts, of course, will include profiteroles and tarte Tatin.

The Drinks:

These French dishes pair beautifully with the wine list, which will also still be primarily French. Well, if it ain’t broke…

In a Nutshell:

La Goulue’s second coming is one for the books – it is rare for a New York spot, no matter how iconic, to make a successful comeback. La Goulue’s reopening has been long awaited, and is sure to kick off the new year in a way that’s delicious, familiar, and (of course) French.
