The Olympics brought more than Michael Phelps to China – it also brought its first celebrity chef.
Daniel Boulud, owner of several famed restaurants in New York (with a signature dish pictured, left), has opened Maison Boulud in near Tiananmen Square. Boulud, in a Reuters interview, said, “Beijing is definitely happening right now and the momentum of the Olympics has given an amazing boost to the city.”
