Michelin-star chef Daniel Rose said:

About Daniel Rose
Daniel Rose began cooking simply because he liked eating. Before heading into the kitchen, he studied ancient Greek, dreamed of kayaking from Texas to Guatemala, and tried to join the French foreign legion. His passion for cuisine was sparked during his time in France attending the American University of Paris. After graduation, Daniel moved to Lyon to learn to cook and enrolled in the Institut Bocuse cooking school. He has been privileged to learn alongside many talented cooks: as an apprentice as well as from many members of his own team.
After six years of apprenticeship and adventure all over France, Daniel settled down in Paris to open the former Spring in 2006, a restaurant that would pioneer a movement in Paris to focusing on seasonal ingredients with no set menu. Spring was Daniel Rose's vision of a classic French meal: abundant with excellent products from all over France, attentive service and carefully chosen wines, a vision that would carry through to all of his future projects.
In 2015, Daniel opened his second Paris restaurant, La Bourse et La Vie, an ode to the bistro. Here, he applies his experience and skilled precision to the most comforting of French dishes such as pot au feu and artichoke salad with foie gras; his favorites from his time in Lyon. A year later, Daniel opened Chez La Vieille, a traditional bistro housed in a stunning 16th century house in the heart of the Les Halles neighborhood of Paris' 1e arrondissement. A symbol of "old world" Paris, Rose and his team pay homage to the past in both the menu and décor.
Originally from Chicago, Daniel opened his first stateside restaurant, Le Coucou in 2016 to much critical acclaim. The New York City-based establishment won James Beard's "Best New Restaurant" award in 2017, earned a spot on the World's Best Restaurant list in 2018 and a Michelin star in 2019.
