DANIEL is one of only a handful of New York restaurants that have been awarded a two-star Michelin rating. This sprawling French restaurant was recently given a complete overhaul, bringing it into the 21st century with a sleek, contemporary look that complements its innovative menu. As in all Daniel Boulud’s restaurants, the menu is heavily influenced by the seasons and combines contemporary French cuisine with American flavors. Overseen by Executive Chef Jean Francois Bruel, the kitchen offers a prix fixe menu as well as two seven-course tasting menus. Vegetarians are well catered to with their very own separate menu, and all menus are offered with optional wine pairings.

Door Peninsula consists of nearly 300 miles of shoreline. Lighthouses were necessary in the19th and 20th centuries to help sailors navigate the rocky shoreline and islands. No longer in use, many of these lighthouses are open for guided tours or self-exploration.
