After going crazy at Eleven Madison Park, we filled the rest of the weekend with far less expensive food. We happened to be in town during Restaurant Week, so we took advantage of this at DBGB Kitchen & Bar.
According to its website, DBGB is Chef Daniel Boulud's "new lowdown downtown place where the French brasserie meets the American tavern."
The Restaurant Week prix fixe three-course lunch cost $24.07.
Chilled ratatouille soup, roasted garlic and chevre crostini, crispy basil.
Pâté campagnard -- country-style pâté with pork and chicken liver.
Rich and salty.
Chanterelle and corn lasagna, Parmesan and chicken jus.
Yankee burger -- 6 oz. beef patty with iceberg, tomato, and Vidalia onion on a sesame bun, Essex Street pickle, and fries.
Hazelnut praline and chocolate cake, hazelnut biscuit, chocolate sauce.
More hazelnut than chocolate -- just the way I like it.
Raspberry yogurt sundae, anise marshmallow, raspberry coulis, whipped cream.
We enjoyed our meal (and the deal), but I've since been thrice informed that we erred by not getting DBGB's famed sausage. I now take this opportunity to advise you not to make the same mistake. Get some sausage at DBGB!
Even without any sausage, DBGB Kitchen & Bar provided us a lovely reasonably priced meal to fuel our walk down to and around the financial district.
I can't get enough of this city. There's something to see everywhere you go.
