    Probably one of the better and more luxurious burgers I've ever had.

    This is how French server a burger. No, a bit different from your average burger. Paired with French onion soup, you get one satisfying meal

    Still going strong. This bistro offers excellent renditions of French classics plus their upmarket version of hamburger (with foie gras). Their evening set courses are excellent value.

    The burger is the specialty, but don't be shy to order something else

    Great place for lunch. Comfortable and relatively calm scene. The DB Burger is a meal on its own and the Fries are delicious and super crispy. The food was presented beautifully and tasted wonderful.

  • Claire J S.

    The Original DB burger, $35 When Daniel Boulud stuffed braised short ribs, foie gras, and preserved black truffles into a ground sirloin shell, he forever changed the face of upscale burgerdom.

    Pâté de Maison, duck confit, Mrs. Brevard cocktail, lamb tagine. Almost everything is very good. I have yet to experience something that was bad.

    Daniel Boulud's the most casual restaurant has many of americanized menus. Duck confit was great.

    The lobster salad went beyond even my high expectations. Plus I got a vacherin for dessert...not even sure what that is but it blew me away.

    The coq a vin is a must.

    Our favorite dish is boeuf en gelée, a cocktail glass of cold beef chunks lubricated with natural jelly and topped with horseradish foam. Spoon it on the slices of toast provided. Read more

    There are so many great classics to have at my midtown bistro, from the tarte flambée to the escargots fricassée and of course the decadent DB Burger! Perfect for a quick lunch or pre-theater meal.

    Daniel Boulud's French-American mashup restaurant with great bistro fare alongside burgers and fries.

    The maitre looks like Bert Kruismans, and is twice as funny, which is actually not that hard...

    Christophe Van der Linden · July 24, 2013
  • ✨Pun B.

    I can't recommend breakfast here. Coffee is great, very dark, but food is surprisingly ordinary. You'll pay $25 for three small pieces of soggy French toast or $22 for a bowl of oatmeal w/ berries.

    Not a good place to dine alone. They don't have a bar to dine at.

    Everybody seems to advocate for the burger - but also try the coq-au-vin, the spicy cod with chorizo and vegetables, or the fois gras... yummm! Great wine selection - try Austrian Gruener Veltliner.

    The food just melts in your mouth, but we had to wait forever for the check.

    Try the legumes rotis - Awesome presentation. They used dried black olive bits as "soil" for the veggie garden in the bowl. Get without cheese to be #vegan

    Elisa CP · November 15, 2012
  • Tina C.

    Try the French toast. It is light and crispy with a tangy-sweet syrup and delicious dips. Unlike any I've ever had!

    Tina Czek · November 4, 2012

    The breakfast bread basket is just awesome.

    Miguel Robledo · October 27, 2012

    Try to get the wine list into your hands, otherwise the sommelier will just read "selections" to you.

    Amazing croissants, duck and lobster; the yogurt is extremely fresh as well.

    James Morrissey · September 2, 2012
  • The New Yorker

    This sleek bistro offers “haute-cuisine versions of home-cooking favorites.” Their theatrical and legendary DB Burger is “rich, well travelled, charred in the right places, and a little bit jaded.” Read more

    Stuffed with short rib, foie gras, and truffles, it's quite unique...and you can really taste the foie gras!
