Friendly service and the sommelier gave you excellent help with a matching wine, not the mist extensive ones. Their burger and fries is to die for, only bad thing about it is that it leaves no room for dessert.

DB Bistro is a must whenever I am in New York. I am especially fond of their coq au vin - which is the perfect lunch on a fall or winter day.

One of the best burgers I've ever put in my mouth. They say this place was the first that came up with a gourmet burger and I think I believe it. If you're a gourmet burger person you got to try this one.
