Really nice change of pace. We went a bit early and sat inside -- meaning a bit quieter and still trendy/fun. Fantastic and varied sausages that were wonderful to share as a starter! Then duck for one, fish, salad for others -- all excellent. Very good service, wine and overall a great evening.

I took clients here and was skeptical at first (Bowery St.!) ... don't let the neighborhood scare you but also don't walk here at night by yourself. I was in NYC for 3 days that this was the best meal we had. With well thought-out service and décor having a modern but welcoming kitchen look, my guests enjoyed the entire... More

Service in the restaurant was better than the bar area, and also less frustrating since we were able to sit down. Of the 2 Daniel Boulud restaurants that we visited (this one and Bar Boulud), we much preferred this one. It has a nice atmosphere without the same level of pretentiousness as Bar Boulud. Also, the food is simpler, and... More

Knowing the reputation of Chef Boulud and the praise I had heard of DBGB had me extremely excited to dine here on my trip to NYC. What me, my fiancé and our two friends experienced was less than lackluster thanks to terrible service. I'm still upset about it. I should mention I am in the hospitality business, so expectations are... More

My husband and I were visiting NYC and took advantage of the last week of restaurant week in NYC to have a nice dinner without breaking the bank. We chose DBGB for it's good reviews and respected chef. Our dinner was very good, but service lacked. We were seated right next to the kitchen where the food comes out so... More

My husband and I had walked into this restaurant on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. The room is open and inviting, while service was friendly and on point. We ordered the Calamari to start - fresh and flavorful ! Onto the main course .... the frenchie burger was great and a fair portion size. My husband ordered the strip... More

Food was great, not a good spot for a vegetarian but we were not so were quite pleased. I was a huge fan of my eggs florentine and everyone else had sausages of some sort which were also great. Cocktail list was lack-luster.

Easy spot for a mellow hangover lunch / brunch. The bloody marys' have an interesting mix to them, and there is a large beer selection available. The food was decent bar food - salads, burgers etc - all well presented and decent quality.
