DBGB Kitchen & Bar Review

The downtown arm of Daniel Boulud's New York City restaurant fleet, DBGB forgoes the white tablecloths, formal service, and steep prices found at the famed chef's fancier digs, and instead pays homage to the grittier, younger feel of its Lower East Side location. (The name is a wink to the legendary rock club CBGB.) Lined with shelves of pots, plates, and pans (not to mention copperware donated by renowned chefs from around the world), the dining room gives way to a partially open kitchen where you can catch the chefs preparing Boulud's take on French- and German-inspired pub fare. The menu features 14 different varieties of sausages, decadent burgers (the aptly named "piggy" burger, a juicy beef patty topped with a generous portion of pulled pork, jalapeño mayonnaise, and mustard-vinegar slaw on a cheddar bun), and classic entrées like steak frites and lemon-and-rosemary roasted chicken.

    DBGB Kitchen & Bar Review

    Where Daniel Boulud is concerned - this is an inexpensive and easy-going experience, in the fun, casual Bowery. Not nearly yummy enough if you've got other gastronomic shrines of DB on your mind; but perfect for jeans, burgers, and beer-sampling.
