Expert review of DBGB Kitchen & Bar

A sausage and burger joint that’s perfect for a boys’ night out.

This stretch of the Bowery used to be a rough neighborhood, originating the term “Skid Row” back in the day. But times have changed and the former block of run down tenement buildings, which was torn down to make way for luxury apartments, is now the home for DBGB, the first downtown restaurant from Daniel Boulud. Despite the slick masculine space, the menu still nods to the humble roots of the neighborhood.

Food and drink: 

More a gourmet hot dog stand than a formal restaurant, with 14 varieties of sausage and 55 hand-picked beers on offer. The wine list is also stellar and you can drink vintages like the lovely Gevery-Chamertin with the aptly-named Piggy Burger, topped with pulled pork.

Ambience: 

Sleek, modern and bustling, it’s a really good option if you are looking for a meaty menu, and a trendy scene.

Service: 

A little hit or miss.

Location: 

On the burgeoning Bowery, this is becoming one of the trendiest neighborhoods in town.

Price advice: 

It may be hotdogs and hamburgers but main courses still run from US$11 and a three-course meal without wine is about US$45 per person.

Tables to book: 

The front part of the restaurant is more casual but the best seat in the house is one of the banquettes in the back.
