A word from Bar DKDC
International Street Food / Rum Bar/ Vintage Photo Booth / Soul Music. Bar- DKDC restaurant menu of small plates is inspired by international street food. Small plates come out alongside specialty libations / cocktails. Bar DKDC represents the next chapter for Chef Karen B. Carrier…
Street Food was a natural step, not only because the genre melds with her eclectic culinary tastes, but also because in many places street food is the essence of local cuisine. The menus read like an adventurous backpacker’s food diary- changing every five weeks focusing on street food from a different city or country each time. You might enjoy Oaxacan Mexican street food one month and weeks later you’ll be transplanted to the Caribbean and on to the Tapas Bars in Spainor to the melting pot of Asian Street Food.

Home of The Vintage Photo Booth and Dj Dropout Boogie / Music of the 50’s &60’s every first Friday and Saturday of each Month.

    I love so much about this unique little gem and was really looking forward to the mediterranean cuisine. The waitress marked the dishes that were not being offered because this was the last night for this cuisine. Poor start. Our food came....my salad was lacking the figs, blood oranges, instead mostly lettuce with a few orange slices. No olives in the mix either. Hummus didn't even rival commercial hummus, which I barely tolerate. And nothing is better than homemade hummus. The chicken was very nice, and maybe 3 good bites...hiss, boo. I was just getting warmed up with dish that I truly liked. The waitress did tell us that the kitchen was running low on ingredients because Mediterranean was coming to a close.... whimper minus the bang!

    Original and delicious cocktails. Food was plentiful and also delicious. Bartender was very helpful in creating celebratory shooters for my friend's birthday. Our waitress might be the nicest human being I've ever met. Fun photo booth. Great experience, will definitely be back.

    We ordered 6 tapas to make a dinner but these tapas were so large & filling that we ended up takng some home. Loved the wings. Wish the shrimp were larger -seasoning was great but size of shrimp was, well shrimps small.

    Neat menu, delicious food, energetic atmosphere, hip decor, but AWFUL seating. Seriously, spring for some real chairs. It's no fun to eat steak frites - or anything that isn't a finger food - perched on a stool. We were so uncomfortable trying to sit and eat. We were basically hunched over a coffee table. I'm glad we went and I'd go back if a group was dying to go; otherwise the seating alone is bad enough to make me stay away.

  • ole Do WAS THE ONE...

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    ole DO (last restaurant at this location) was MUCH BETTER! TOO SMALL FOR THIS TYPE OF SETTING.. More like a slider affair then a upscale foodie place. ..Biscuit with Chicken looked a bit like Chick-fil-A. Hot Dog was kinda like I chiwawa ! Good for the mid-town folks and their buddies with a decent amount of drafts. Great Drink Menu for hard liquors Very Good service but limited menu. Very uncomfortable seating in tiny chairs...I'm small; and good back, but you don't sit long if you are on a small Round chair in the middle of the room. I'd come back for pre-dinner drinks...Not food.. Alchemy would be the one for those choices...

    DKDC had lots if great food choices, and nice cocktail selections. The band kicked in, making dinner conversation a little tough, but not a big issue since we knew one was scheduled. The server had to switch out mid-dining to cover the door, but the very busy bartender managed to take great care of us. Fun new place.

    Could not read the menu. Really, the font on the menu was very frustrating. Hard to determine what each item was. No real seats available, had to sit at a coffee table.

    We enjoyed our meal although the shrimp app we ordered wasn't very good, everything else was. The service was very slow but they kept mentioning a huge party at Beauty Shoppe next door. So, not great that the next door restaurant group was slowing down our meal but it is what it is. We might try again.

    I love the concept of small plates, but unfortunately the execution at DKDC (I tried 5 different plates) is mediocre at best.

    I took a group of out of towners to this place at the suggestion of my son. I looked at the restaurant's menu before going to make sure that I thought it was appropriate. I was very surprised to arrive and find that only Asian food was being served because the menu had changed and had not been updated on their website. I had chosen not to go to an Asian restaurant, so I was disappointed and a bit uncomfortable when one of my guests said, "wow, I have no idea if I will like anything on this menu." Apparently one needs to c all to find out what is being served.

    Service was great. The food was great. The only thing was the Beef and Broccoli.... the meat was really fatty and we were not able to eat it :/ Maybe just a one time thing.... but overall was good :)

    The food was fantastic yet a little pricey for the portions. The menu was of the asian variety this time and it did not disappoint. The gouza, short ribs and the red coconut curry was fantastic. Overall fun, eclectic neighborhood gem.

    Very small, but well done interior. Unique decor. Food was very good, but the cocktails were a little disappointing. Fried oysters were delicious. Service was a little slow and we were not checked in for drink refills enough. Would go back though.

    Great tapas, lots of variety, superb drinks. No pretentious staff. Nothing on the menu over about 9-10 bucks, and all dishes were a great portion for sharing before a night on the town. Will gladly repeat.

    I was catching up with a good friend of mine, and we had a lovely time eating a delicious fried egg sandwich and 'Ain't Nothing But a Chicken Wing'. Drinks were on point as well. I would recommend anyone to check out an amazing gem in Cooper Young! It's a wonderful place.

    I love the concept of street food with menu changing to reflect a different country each month! The food was good, reasonably priced and most of it was easy to share, which is what is encouraged. My only complaint was the amount of liquor poured into those teensy weensy glasses, which didn't make the pour seem any bigger than the splash that it was. I know liquor drives the sales, not food, but maybe a larger pour would have kept us longer & we would have eaten more instead of leaving to go have "bigger" drinks elsewhere. Just my thought.... Good luck, we'll try again!
