DBGB Kitchen and Bar is Chef Daniel Boulud’s downtown place where the French brasserie meets the American tavern. Guests enjoy 12 varieties of house-made sausage, mouthwatering burgers and towering shellfish platters, in addition to seasonal Lyonnais-inspired bistro cooking. For beer lovers, there are over 20 drafts to choose from and another 75 by-the bottle, plus a full wine list. At dessert, dig into the classics: baked Alaska, soufflés and ice cream sundaes.

Interiors take their cue from the Bowery’s history as New York’s industrial restaurant supply neighborhood with floor to ceiling shelves stocked with the restaurant’s own tools, tableware and dry goods. The sidewalk café, open seasonally, is the perfect spot to enjoy brunch or dinner in warm weather. The private room, tucked away through the kitchen, accommodates parties up to 18 people with a view of the live action behind the line.

Always fun. Good food (get the pork if you have a group) and a wide selection of beers. I like that they have a lot of booths for 5-8 people groups. Bar is fun too, can stop by for a ad-hoc dinner/snacks when around Houston.

We ate the whole hog- but they bring it out like a spectacle and everyone in the restaurant stares at you judging. I didn't like the big deal that they made of it- it made me uncomfortable. The actual food was incredible and they're very accommodating when you want the food taken down for the full experience. It comes with the sides and dessert, a great value for a party of 8.

Service was amazing. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Great place for delicious sausages and beer. I was also very happy with the entrees I tried - really enjoyed the duck!

Such a disappointment. We were there for lunch today 3/19/16 and were surprised that only a brunch menu was available. We wanted a sausage sampler as an appetizer and the waitress to her credit did arrange for that, but charged us nearly the price we would have paid had we had it on the full brunch menu but we didn't get the brunch inclusions. The sausages were poorly cooked and not even hot. The mains weren't that great either; my friend ordered the Croque Madame and specified he wanted the egg runny, and it came out overcooked. My burger was ok but the fries, although crisp and tasty, were not hot. My other friend's main was nothing to write home about either. The waitress was inattentive and we had to flag her down when we wanted something, and we waited a long time for our food and a beer we ordered midway through the meal. The restaurant was at best 20% full so it made having to flag the waitress down and then wait so long for food and drink particularly annoying. In general the waitstaff moved about with little sense of purpose or urgency. I gave this feedback to the manager before we left and although he apologized he wasn't enthusiastic about doing anything to compensate us for our bad experience. He definitely was not a good brand ambassador which does the name Daniel Boulud a great disservice because the name and prior experience at another Daniel Boulud restaurant is why we went there. As a result of this experience I would never return to this restaurant for sure, and would be hesitant to go to any other Daniel Boulud establishment. A famous name might get people in the door in the first instance but if it doesn't deliver, they will not come back. And, because we paid good money for this poor experience I feel ripped off which is mostly the catalyst for writing this review; it's not something I usually do. In short, I would not recommend this restaurant and will be sharing my bad experience with friends (and anyone else who cares to listen). Big thumbs down.

I came here for brunch during restaurant week and it was incredible. They brought out a bunch of different courses, each one was amazing and the portions were huge.

Got here at 2:40 on a Saturday afternoon. Kitchen was about to close. But we never felt rushed. Service was fun and attentive. The French toast has to be one of the best I have ever had in my entire life...worth coming here just for the French toast. The rest of our meals were good, not spectacular. 5 stars because of the service and the dreamy French toast...wines by the glass are pretty good too.

Only had drinks and snacks here but their beer selection was unreal. The food we had was excellent, Daniel Boulud is the man.
