The Skinny on Cafe Boulud

Barbara Walters prefers Table 10 at Cafe Boulud and Jon Corzine does, too, though the New Jersey governor will take 20 and 30 as well. The Wall Street Journal this weekend breaks down the A-list seating arrangements at Daniel Boulud’s nearly decade-old French eatery at 20 East 76th Street on the Upper East Side.

Recent diners, in addition to regulars like Ms. Walters and Governor Corzine:

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and a large party came in for dinner on a Friday evening. Fashion designer Tom Ford and Bruce Springsteen ate dinner at table 20. Bill Cosby dined on a Sunday evening with his wife and parents to celebrate his mother’s birthday. Architect I.M. Pei came in for a last-minute dinner with his wife and sat at table 10, his usual choice. Dan Aykroyd ate lunch at the semiprivate table 9.
