“Mr. Boulud’s great genius is to be absolutely true to both the training and underlying French flavors of his French childhood and to the joys and pressures of being[…]a businessman, always on the run. He has made being French the most American thing about him. This makes for good restaurants.” – Sam Sifton, The New York Times
DBGB (named after legendary punk-rock venue CBGB in New York) is the perfect blend of elevated French cooking technique meeting casual American fare. Daniel Boulud, described as “one of our more gregarious and intelligent restaurateurs,” serves up whimsy and comfort in the heart of City Center DC.
Chef Boulud’s first and only restaurant in Washington D.C. is an experience unlike any other. Thanks to Chef Nic Tang at the helm, diners can satisfy every gastro-whim from bar bites to larger, Lyonnais-inspired entrees for two. The cocktail menu, which includes a wide selection of craft beers and sommelier-selected wines, has elevated DBGB’s status to one of the best bars in CityCenter DC, perfect for happy hour or a night out on the town.
Whether you’re seeking a quick business lunch, an intimate dinner or simply a place to have a perfectly-made cocktail and watch the game, DBGB provides something for everyone in its airy, urban setting.
