Dinner on a Tuesday night with friends in a largely empty, subdued room was a bit of a contrast with an earlier visit when the place was buzzing and vibrant. Service was professional and friendly and the food competent, if uninspired. A good wine list and an impressive, wonderfully described beer list.

Fun atmosphere and excellent food - highly recommend it. Other famous chefs and donated sets of cookware, which are stacked around the restaurant as decorations. Very interesting. Nice menu

We visited DBGB on a recent visit to New York. We had a large group and reservations were easy using open table.

Came early for Sunday brunch, and was seated in the main dining room. The space was lovely and airy, with high ceilings and tables down the middle section of room as well as off to the side in more secluded, private spaces. Our group ordered the usual brunch dishes, but I don't think anybody was especially delighted with their meal.... More

Received our entrees before the appetizers, and the waiter forgot to submit our Charcuterie board. Bar orders never came, and the food was decidedly unimpressive. I had the Frenchie burger that was incredibly overcooked (ordered Medium Rare) and the pork belly was tasteless and chewy. The Mussels broth was bland. Ambiance was fine, but music was really loud ("welcome to... More

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.

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

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.
