DBGB has definitely one of the best burgers in town. The steak tartare is good. The kids menu has enough choices for the little ones and the atmosphere is relaxed. Big booths to accommodante a party of 8 Service a little slow.

This is just a marvelous place, fun and unstuffy atmosphere, staffed by real professionals. The menu is great, everything you want to eat, from the freshest oysters to the most delicious charcuterie, to burgers and sausages and beyond. Chef Nic's Wednesday nite Singaporean curried chicken is simply terrific. The cocktails ain't bad either, including the Boom Boom in the Zoom... More

Set in a bustling and upscale decor, dinner at DBGB calls for a significant wallet discharge. We were discouraged for the first half of the meal when the waiter inexplicably started sulking at us while serving, but after notifying the manager his attitude had a 180 degree turnover from insolent to saccharine. This perplexing phenomenon aside--the cocktails were an unexpected... More

I love the decor and the way Daniel Boulud recognizes his mentor and friends by placing their name under copper pots and culinary items. One can see Troisgros, Bocuse recognized. Very friendly welcome and service. Alike Daniel Boulud other restaurants, the service is fast and efficient. An interesting brasserie menu including seafood platters. I started my dinner with a charcuterie... More

In June 2016 we had a lunch for five at DBGB to celebrate my mother's birthday that dented our first impression - more so with Charles Enna's warmth welcome as we talked about the restaurant decor that I was admiring and ending to their recommended draft beer. November 2016, a simple family event - wedding! DBGB was the choice, and... More

Saturday rain hurt the dog parade mood but luckily we arrived to a warm welcome and cozy visit to DBGB. Our waitress was genuinely gracious. All the staff seemed happy and not stressed. We enjoyed the best burgers, charcuterie and had a birthday toast with bourbon from the excellent bar! Thanks

Welcoming, nice place with an interesting menu, 3 types if great burgers, and a knowledgeable and nice sommelier. There is a dish we saw at another table of the BIGGEST rack of lamb with 3 chops, each as big as a man's hand, thick and juicy, with the bone about 1' long, stacked like a pyramid. The guys at the...

Very good food and superb service are the order of the day in this establishment. A wonderful atmosphere, bright, clean lines, glass allows the diners to observe all the action. Also little dining nooks make dining a bit quieter and more intimate.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
