Perhaps I am teasing myself because these juicy burgers are definitely not on my eating plan post-New Year’s, but just looking at the pictures of Chef David Boulud’s Original DB Bistro Burger makes me salivate.
One of the first ultra-burgers publicized in the United States, Boulud’s burger is juicy sirloin with a center of braised short rib, foie gras and black truffle. Need I say more?
While it’s no bargain bite at $32, I don’t think you will find a more memorable burger easily. It comes with either traditional French fries or “pommes soufflees,” which are crispy, house-made potato chips.
Of the many times I have dined at DB Bistro Moderne, I keep going back for the burger. The other items certainly show the kitchen’s craft, especially delicate preparations of fresh fish. But the burger… is what dreams are made from.
