Daniel Boulud in upcoming issue of LLNYC

New York /

Luxury Listings NYC staff is busy putting the final touches on the next issue, which will feature Chef Daniel Boulud on the cover.

Boulud is the chef and owner of several award-winning restaurants, including his New York City flagship, Daniel. French-born, he can be thought of as New York City’s own culinary treasure, preserving a level of cooking informed by French tradition — at a time when fine dining is becoming increasingly casual. LLNYC visited Chef Boulud in the kitchen at Daniel to discuss culinary matters — and in the dining room, where the real story was on the plate.

We also hung out with Pulitzer Prize finalist and film critic for the New York Times, A. O. Scott. Scott has a new book out, “Better Living Through Criticism: How to Think About Art, Pleasure, Beauty, and Truth,” which argues that purposeful criticism today is being lost, drowned by a sea of bloggers and tweeters buoyed by social media. We pulled up a chair and settled in for spirited conversation.

In this issue we also talked to landscape architects about the best ways to make the most of outdoor terraces, one of the hottest niches for home improvement. Architects say New York City luxury home owners can create outdoor rooms for a taste of “country” living, with outside kitchens and even flat screen TVs for al fresco movie nights.

But for a true country experience, one can buy a home in Hudson Valley, just north of the city. We talked to brokers there for our ranking story on the homes on the market in the desirable Columbia and Dutchess counties. Inventory there is diverse, with modern glass boxes and working farms, and the acreage and square footage is startlingly vast – but prices are a fraction of what one would pay in New Yorkers’ other favorite vacation destination, the Hamptons.

Speaking of the Hamptons, we spent time with Jean Shafiroff, a woman on a mission to support charities, including those on the East End. A fixture of the gala scene, Shafiroff gives us a run down of the upcoming season. We’re getting our gowns ready.

And we’re dusting off our clubs with a roundup of the most exclusive golf clubs in the tri-state area and a look at what it takes to become a member. It’s also wedding season and in that spirit, we gently suggest readers stop playing it safe with registry gifts and show their creativity with thoughtful and modern presents. Luxe Life leads readers down the (store) aisle.
