Award-winning French chef Daniel Boulud was in Austin this past weekend for Formula One’s United States Grand Prix. Of course, the New York City chef had to eat, and he chose to dine at both Qui and Olamaie during his short time in the city. First, he went to Qui, where he ducked behind counter and spoke to the staff, according to chef de cuisine Jorge Hernández. Boulud said the dinner was "fantastic," and that it was a "very fine moment in Austin."
Earlier this month, Emeril Lagasse stopped by Olamaie and Qui for dinners during his short Austin visit, too. Where else should Boulud have eaten for a true Austin experience?
