db bistro moderne Restaurant Review

: We would expect nothing less of chef extraordinaire and entrepreneur Daniel Boulud than an impeccable place. The restaurant debuted an updated look in September, 2013, with darker and deeper tones and grey booths centered in the dining room. Chef Laurent Kalkotour oversees the creative dishes on the seasonally inspired menu: artichoke soup with basil oil and tomato confit; country duck pâté with homemade pickled vegetables. How about a $32 hamburger: sirloin burger filled with braised short ribs, foie gras and black truffles on a Parmesan bun. This most-popular dish on the menu is definitely not your father's burger. Desserts are equally sweet and savory: chocolate praline crémeux (a creamy layering of hazelnut dacquoise, flaky pastry and dark chocolate ice cream) as well as an assortment of cheeses. Choose from a simple, international (well-priced) wine list that includes the likes of a Nicolas Potel Volnay.
