BELON is a neo-Parisian bistro that showcases French-rooted yet locally influenced cooking created with the best available ingredients and well-executed basics made from scratch. Reminiscent of the dynamic food scene found in Paris’ 11th arrondissement, BELON presents a refreshing genre of French cuisine in a pared-down SoHo space that allows the restaurant’s sincere approach to food to shine.
After ten years in Michelin-starred kitchens, Daniel Calvert brings passion and precision to his role at BELON. With an impressive career featuring placements at The Ivy, Pied à Terre, Per Se and Epicure at Le Bristol, Calvert’s foundation remains unmatched by peers of his 29 years. Granted access to the best of international and local produce, and the freedom to cook whatever he likes as long as it is “inherently excellent,” Calvert’s management of the BELON kitchen is a continuation of both his and the restaurant’s excellence.
