“Delightful brunch outdoors in Williamsburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

The very pleasant and helpful staff at Dumont accepted our reservation for brunch at 12 noon on a busy Sunday. Our party of 5 was seated within 5 minutes in the bright airy outdoor section, creating an absolutely delightful afternoon repast.
Started with a bottle of excellent prosecco and an assortment of fine appetizers: the crisp artichokes were sublime. Their signature burgers--as stated in other reviews--are excellent. We also thoroughly enjoyed their delicious eggs Benedict and a variation not on the menu: substitution of smoked salmon for meat. Good wine list and fine cocktails. Very good value for money.
Casual attire fit a mostly local crowd in this unpretentious neighborhood gem.

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stumbled upon DuMont as we explored Williamsburg on a hot and humid Saturday. We sat outside watching the world go by as we enjoyed a cold beer and the best burgers.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is an unpretentious local place that has, frankly, some of the best food I've ever eaten--in America, Europe, or Mexico. The roast chicken was not only tender and luscious but in a sauce that was just delectable. Roasted brussel sprouts with maple glazed pecans? Wow....And everything at our table was first-rate bistro style food. Nice waitress working hard, good beers, really pleasant outdoor area (with a roof that can close or open depending on weather). If I lived in this area, I'd eat here all the time. And the prices were very reasonable.

“DuMont: Top of their Game.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The name DuMont is french for 'top of the mountain" and the name could not be a better fit (Although the name is derived salvaged neon sign from the Dumont Television Network).
Many restaurants, over time, have a signature dish and this restaurant is no different: Dumont Burger and the DuMac & Cheese.
But one needs to look at the menu the daily specials to really understand and appreciate this restaurant.
The food and the space are NOT pretentious. We shared two appetisers: Crispy Baby Artichokes (bed of arugula, preserved lemons, parmesan shavings dressed with a creamy garlic dressing). The flavours blended well and no one element overpowered the other? The artichokes were amazing.
The second appetiser - a special - was Mission Fig Salad ( arugula, bresaola, goat cheese, arugula, figs and a balsamic reduction). This was outstanding. The sweetness of the figs and the tartness of the goat cheese - incredible combination of flavours, Now, I have never been a fan of bresaola - has been dry and too salty - this was a standout. Paper thin slices, lightly salted, properly cured with a subtle beef flavour.
We share a main course: Smoked Pork Loin ( smokey bourbon glaze on a bed of butter beans, mustard greens). The pork was tender, juicy. Th exterior had a nice smokey flavour and the glaze had a bit of heat. The butter beans were so delicious, as were the mustard greens (a favourite of mine)
Nice portions and very satisfying.
Service was friendly and attentive.
