Boulud Sud

20 W 64th St,
New York, NY 10023

Before Ax’s concert, we dined. Very delicious food (big portion) with nice presentation, so is the service, just right. Our waitstaff has a trainee follows her around. The single dinning hall is bit jammed tho. The freebie sweet – sesame square reminds me of the candy we had when I was little in Beijing.

Bathroom. My friend went to downstair who has no complain but I went to the one on the same floor and it smells so bad – like the gas station bathroom. Pls keep it clean …

Emanuel Ax @ Lincoln Center

Ax has been a long time accompanist to Yoyo Ma. Now seems he’s striking out on his own more. We love him the same. He walks slowly on the stage @ David Geffen Hall, and looks older than his ad photo … same as Radu Lupu & András Schiff, ha ha ha. Dinner at Boulud Sud is very good.

Regarding the look of the male musicians, Hindman wrote in her memoir “There he is, Itzhak Perlman, looking older than the photographs on your CD jackets.” -:)
