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.

Chef Daniel Boulud's hip bistro serves meat-centric French comfort food in a sprawling space.- Google
"Leek and potato soup was like a bowl milk and calamari almost too salty to eat."
"Decent food and craft beer, not worth the price IMO."

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!

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.

Fun, great atmosphere in the bar. Worth going for the oysters and the Boudin noir alone.

Delicious food and an excellent head chef. My mom and I stopped in for dinner around 6pm, and were a bit nervous because the large restaurant, and neighborhood, was pretty quiet. We tried the prix fixe menu and it was amazing. The beets salad was the best I have ever had. The herbs brought out the freshness and created a soothing flavor. I then couldn't stop eating the duck confit pasta. The head chef Ian chatted with us while it still quiet. He was very friendly and listened to my mom's numerous stories. By 7pm, the place was packed. The prix fixe menu could use another dessert option but otherwise, the experience was phenomenal!

DBGB was such a great experience. Went there for a birthday celebration and they were so courteous and helpful. The food was great and they made the night memorable

Not quite sure where the attitude issues posted by others arise from but we had a great dinner - arriving early, without reservation, as a family of four. Everybody was very friendly and patient. The food was really good, great fresh oysters (east coast, 1 USD during happy hour), good salad, mussels, kids Burger, fettucine with Tuscan sausage and sundaes for desert . It is not two Michelin-star stuff, but that's not the aim of the place. Maybe the wine was a bit too warm when it arrived but it cooled down quickly in the ice bucket.

Sigh. I hate restaurants like this.... they have a recognizable chef (not famous by any means) and get an ego. This restaurant is average, not great. I love french food, I love wine so this seemed like a good impromptu early dinner on a weeknight. The hosts were incredulous that we didn't call ahead for a reservation, yet the entire restaurant was empty we were literally the only patrons there. They told us we could sit wherever we want if we ate quickly lol. I can not even believe we stayed after that comment, but we did sit down and then they moved us to a little corner where we took up as little space as possible. Anyway, getting onto the food it was decent. We shared charcuterie which was well balanced and the wine was also tasty (rose, cabernet). We got two meat dishes, nothing overly memorable, but I thought it was decent. I just didn't like the atmosphere at all. It was snooty and they didn't have time for us. Who cares if a dinner rush is coming, don't snub foodies that live in the area and will choose to never return. Oh, and the waiter messed up the bill so badly and thought we wouldn't notice! Charged us for a bottle instead of a class of the wine and charged the credit card to that effect and then had to charge again a different amount. Amateur service for Bowery.
