A word from DP An American Brasserie
dp, An American Brasserie, is a signature restaurant by Dominick Purnomo. It offers a menu of imaginative and inventive cuisine, over two dozen small plates, traditional favorites and a selection of Chef Yono’s signature menu items for lunch and dinner.

At just under 2000 sq ft with 18 foot ceilings and an abundance of natural lighting from six oversized windows, dp is a room that demands attention. Our dining room offers a mix of table & banquette seating in a decidedly more casual atmosphere than Yono’s.

It features a 25 foot custom mahogany and granite bar stocked with a full array of spirits, cordials, and of course myriad wines by the glass. We pride our beverage program on fresh, seasonally inspired cocktails, and a by the glass wine program, which changes several times per week, that rivals any in the region. Guests are also invited to peruse the 900 selection Wine Spectator “Best of Award of Excellence” winning Yono’s wine list.

    Another excellent dining experience at DPs An American Bistro on Saturday night. Food choices have great variety and every item we tried was great. The wine list is very strong and if desired we could access the Yono's world class list. There isn't a better choice in the Capital Disrict for amazing service, super variety and fabulous food.

    We had another great dining experience at DP. The service was outstanding. Very efficient, yet, not intrusive. and very knowledgeable of the menu. Our food was well prepared and very enjoyable. The portions were the right amount, not sparse nor overwhelming. We have never been disappointed in any meal or dining experience we have had at DP. We would highly recommend you try if you have never gone. We will certainly be back.

    Party of four. Two of us ordered the braised short ribs. Mine were excellent while the other had a fair amount of fibrous material. The server offered to replace the fibrous one but the person declined. Five minutes later she returned with two new orders of the short ribs which were tender and perfect. She said the chef wanted to make sure we enjoyed the entree. Excellent service and great way to ensure customer satisfaction with the experience. Everything else including the three other entrees, appetizers and cocktails were top notch.

    The wait staff were not familiar with how the food was prepared. I asked on 3 different dishes and the response was "I am not familiar with how it is prepared." Mostly green young staff on last Fri night and the vegetables were not cooked ..crunchy to say the least. Entree was average and there was nothing special about the place.

    I was visiting Albany for business and found this restaurant on OpenTable. I went with colleagues and our children. It was wonderful. The noise level is quite high so soft talkers beware. But the starters were a fantastic way for all to share and have tastes of the great food. The crab ragoon special starter was a favorite. Who knew? DP did that Kale would make a fantastic Caesar Salad. We even got instructions from the waitress on how to properly make it at home (the secret: massage the Kale with olive oil and lemon before making the rest of the salad.

    This restaurant was recommended to us because it was close to the Palace Theater where we were going for a show. We didn't know it would also be in the hotel where we stayed! The service was excellent with all servers working pleasantly together. The summer bean soup was outstanding - a simple vegetable broth with vegetables in it. We also had the poached pear and candied pecan salad, and the cheese plate. Accompanied by pretzel rolls, it was wonderful, light fare.

    We had dinner before a show at the Palace Theater. Lauren, our server, was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We gave Lauren the wine basics, and she asked us each 2 more questions, and then brought the perfect wines. The dinners were spot on - a basket of warm pretzel rolls with a great mustard, appetizers of a single diver's scallop and the fried calamari, and entrees of a crisp eggplant sandwich and the leg of lamb. We had room for dessert, and they were both decadent. Not an inexpensive meal, overall, but great food, presentation, and tremendous service. We will be back.

    DP's was a last minute decision for my graduation lunch after getting recommendations from co-workers. Many other places in Albany seemed too expensive or overrated for lunch. DP's was EXCELLENT. My parents and other relatives present couldn't stop saying what an excellent choice it was for lunch. My uncle commented that his bloody Mary was the best he's ever had. The waiter was excellent, the food was excellent and it was definitely a great way to end such an important day.

    DP's is the casual side of Yono's restaurant. The two make a great duo, DP's for lunch and more laid back dinner fare. Yono's for best in the Capital Region fine dining. The proprietors, Yono and Dominick Purnomo are very friendly and super-knowledgable about great food and wine. Food is a unique comination of Indonesian and American/Continental fare. I simply love the place.

    DP's series up fine drinks and food. On this visit a local rum was suggested, and met with my approval. I again had the mussels with curry coconut and they were tasty. Others had burgers and found them very good, French fries excellent...maybe too few! The berry sorbet is bursting with flavor. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We were there on a Thursday evening, if you want a moderate noise level go after the post work and pre theatre crowd. The noise level dropped a little after 7 PM.
