Does anyone know where I might find any of the following: menus (i believe there is a library in NYC with a collection of these but public, private, or another source entirely?), a list of signature dishes, and/or recipes for them for:
* Le Bernardin when Gilbert La Coze was the chef. I have the restaurant cookbook and it has only two of Gilbert's dishes, the rest are by Eric Ripert. I'm really interested in learning more about Gilbert's food.
* Bouley during 1987 - 1996. David Bouley's cooking then was astonishing and very different from the equally good food he makes now. I'd like to know more about his cooking then.
* Daniel during 1993 - 1999. Daniel Boulud's food then was so classique, and again his dishes now while equally good are different. I'm interested in these first years of his restaurant.
Google did not produce many useful results even with extensive searches. That is when I thought of Chowhound's collective culinary intelligence. Thanks for any help you may provide.
