Chef Daniel Boulud’s db bistro moderne is a contemporary French restaurant, known for chic bistro cuisine. The menu features updated bistro classics with a modern twist and market-driven French-American cuisine, alongside traditional French specialties and seasonal dishes showcasing the Greenmarket’s finest produce.

Located one block east of Times Square in New York City, db bistro is the perfect spot for pre- and post-theater dining, a Midtown business lunch or breakfast “à L’Express”. Happy hour specials offered daily from 3-6pm.

It was here that Daniel Boulud launched the gourmet hamburger craze in 2001 that took the world by storm. The DB Burger, stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs and foie gras, continues to be a main attraction.

Our handsome bar area features a seasonal menu of dishes that can be enjoyed with exceptional wines and cocktails.

    We were dining at db Bistro prior to heading to the theater, celebrating my daughter's 30th and my sister's 65th. I cannot say enough about what a lovely experience we had. The staff was so attentive, 2 of us had special dietary needs and the staff went out of their way to be helpful, they really went above and beyond. The food was delicious too. My only comment would be to have more than one entree choice that is vegetarian.
