THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED DBGB Kitchen and Bar Restaurant Review

: Daniel Boulud’s casual burger eatery---Daniel Boulud Good Burger---is the top toque’s attempt to transform along with the souring of the economy. Compared to what you might spend at his flagship eatery, a $19 hamburger does appear to be a bargain. Is it worth it? Yes. That is, if you can wrap your head around the idea of spending that much on a burger. The piggie, topped with pulled pork in between a cornbread bun, could be one of the city’s best. The tamed-down Yankee, on a soft sesame seed bun (and $5 cheaper) is also memorable. The menu also boasts a long list of sausages (including a very good Berlin-style currywurst) and some bistro classics like moules frites. Despite the attempt at a casual atmosphere, the plush, dark-hued main dining room is much too elegant for what is on the menu. The bar area in front (no reservations taken) is more congruent, but ear splittingly loud as well. The long beer list is a good one, including several American microbrewers and beers from Belgium and Germany (sadly, no Czech beers are on the list).
