DBGB (Daniel Boulud Good Burger) is located on 299 Bowery (across the street from Double Crown). DBGB is just one more reason why the Bowery is the up and coming Meatpacking District. DBGB is essentially an elegant pub. They specialize in ales (their wine list contains at least 20 different types of beers) and foods such as sausages and burgers, but don’t think Boulud forgot the roasted lamb legs and foie gras either. Upon entry the doors have little phrases on them which as of Saturday was finished! The bar is just a regular bar section for walk-ins, nothing spectacular around it. The dinning room is where the “party” is (not like the energy is anything close to Tao’s energy level, but it is better than the bar area’s). The crowd is very diverse as it spreads out from college students to families with children to…well…the elderly (but the chic elderly, after all it is Daniel Boulud’s restaurant). The kitchen is perfectly visible from any table in the dining area as they are split off by racks and shelves of kitchenware. Rustic plates, cups, mugs and utensils sit on shelves around the dining room accompanied by pasta boxes and the occasional rooster. Now for the food. Dishes such as the Vermont Sausage and Yankee burger were a big hit. The more up-scale dishes such as the lamb leg and skate were good, but the portions were a bit small for the price tag (average price for an entree was $23). Basically, stick to the bar food (sausages, burgers etc.) and don’t bother with the other things unless you’re really that interested. People with nut allergies need to be careful as DBGB doesn’t make their own spices, and they claim that the spices may contain traces of nuts. But the servers are very cautious and take the proper precautions to prevent an allergic reaction. In conclusion the bar food is where its at and just leave the rest alone.
