Brunch at DBGB in NYC, New York

Being a fan of Daniel Boulud, we decided to go for brunch at DBGB, a bistro located on Bowery. Casual, but a bit trendy! The decor is spectacular, with two different rooms separated by shelves, one of them full of pans and pots "donated" by famous Chefs (Paul Bocuse, who is a legend in France or Gordon Ramsay being some of them).

Both dining rooms are different and carry a different feel: the first one, after the entrance is very casual, modern, bright, with wall covered with mirrors where you can read famous people's quotes.

In the back is the bar, with a wall covered in bottles.

Then, there is the second dining room, that is more formal, with shelves all over, mainly occupied by wine bottles.

In the back, is the huge open kitchen. The menu at DBGB features both French and American traditional dishes. For instance, on the French side, you can order the charcuterie plate made of pâté, jambon (ham) or head cheese; they serve also blood sausage or croque Monsieur. On the American side, they have hotdogs as well as burgers. For the latter, they propose a French version, the Frenchie, that I tried! The French touch is: confit pork belly, tomato-onion compote and morbier cheese!

The beef patty, that was served on a peppered brioche bun, was perfectly cooked medium and very juicy, to the point that i did not need to add any ketchup or mayo. You could taste the layered components one after the other, delightfully complementing each other.

The only ingredient I was not a fan of was the arugula and I should have asked not to include it. It was not a big deal though and I have to say that it was a fantastic burger, better than the one at Minetta Tavern and close to the one at Colicchio & Sons! Yes, I dare comparing!!!
The burger was served with some delicious fries, that were crispy as I like them.

Jodi ordered the "oeuf forestier", that is in fact two eggs "en cocotte" (baked eggs) served with wild mushrooms, gruyere and herbs.

It was a very good dish: the yolk was orange, slightly runny, and they were not cheap on the gruyere and mushrooms! This is definitely a dish I recommend!

This was a great brunch, although the service was a bit slow. But I am looking forward to going back to try some other mouth watering dishes they propose!

Enjoy (I did)!
