IMG_0024A perfectly dressed waitress assisting Emi at DBGB, a casual meets up-scaled all American food prepared by 5 star French chef, Daniel Bloulud.  Check out their funky funk website here, www.danielnyc.com

14 varieties of house made gorgeous links and kick ass burgers prepared in simple 3 ways are the perfect matches for their extensive 22 draft beers and more of bottled ones. Lively and bit 90′s decor makes you feel like you are in somewhere out in some European Metropolitan city.  Friendly and speedy service and surprisingly well priced ( quite affordable for the line of super star chef Daniel Bloulud’s restaurant) menu is perfect for a couple or a gathering for a big group of 10 or so.  We did not make a reservation as it was a brunch for us  but I would recommend you do make one if you are going for a dinner.

The restaurant was designed by Thomas Schlesser inspired by the history of the neighborhood  in Bowery Street area, the Restaurant supply district consisting of show casing hefty copper pots and pans hanging off the modern shelving system that carry through out the entire restaurant.  But  you can’t avoid the classic French bistro coming through to you while you are dinning as you see the handsome waiting staff dressed in long aprons and more than enough of good old classic dishes like Stake tartar, Oysters and house made Foie Gras. We absolutely loved our 2 links and Gael’s burger and well chilled draft beer and fresh lemonade accompanied.  When the food arrived it didn’t look like enough amount but quickly you would realize there is more than enough of love to satisfy your hunger.

OK enough of me and let me share some pics of the food!

IMG_0052Good food and casual yet polished ambiance. Try it  its delicious!

And DBGB is located right next door to CBGB now turned into a John Varvatos‘ Men’s wear boutique. So after our happy meals, we made a quick visit to the shop where many original decor or let’s say more of history of CBGB has kept with glass show cases. Good job Varvatos! I am so glad this important history of NYC did not turn into a some gym or another cheap deli!!!!

Then there was ” Grande” McQueen’s year 1999 robot sprayed dress. Are you all going to see Andrew Bolton curated Alexander McQueen exhibition at Met ? It runs through July 31st.

Then also there was Bjork’s ” All is Full of Love”

And Michel Gondry and Bjork’s Paint Piano. My favorite Youtube clip. Not really a robot but I do think this is robot related as mechanical function of it all.

Toyota’s Robot Violinist. CRAZY.

Then Sony’s Dancing Robots. Smooth.

OK, Enough now!

But

Go Future!
