Great Sausage and an Old Fashioned Baked Alaska at Daniel's New Hot Spot

Sarah and Wilson decided to spend one of their nights at a hotel in the city. They also wanted one good dinner. We wanted to try DBGB, Daniel Boulud’s new restaurant on the Lower East Side. This here is the Beaujolaise sausage, a pork, mushrooms, onion, bacon and red wine link with lentils du puy:

The plan was to stay over at Boo’s, so we took the train in:

Now we take our seats. There are booths along one side of the dining room. Copper pots from other chefs decorate the walls:

My photos are superdark because I only had the iPhone.

First we order a bunch of sausages to share. The aforementioned Beaujoliase:

null

The Toulouse (pork, duck gizzard & garlic link, cassoulet beans):

null

Tunisienne (lamb & mint merguez with harissa, lemon braised spinach & chickpeas):

null

All the sausages were terrific. So flavorful and bold.

Then we had appetizers. The tomato bisque:

null

Asparagus and fried egg with duck prosciutto & cracklins, mustard-egg dressing:

null

null

Matzo ball soup.

The soup was good but not great. The egg dish was great. The mazto ball soup was incredible. I can’t even believe those were matzo balls. I swear they were made of puffed rice...without the crunch.

Now for entrees. The skate au pistou with artichokes, tarbais beans, tomato, nicoise olive & basil broth:

null

The crispy fried pig’s foot:

The Yankee burger with iceberg, tomato & vidalia onion on a sesame bun, essex st. pickle, fries:

The Piggie burger topped with daisy mays bbq pulled pork, jalapeno mayonnaise & boston lettuce on a cheddar-cornbread bun with mustard-vinegar slaw, fries:

And a side of corn salad:

Sarah and Wilson are happy:

We got some dessert, too. The hunna had cheese:

Wilson had chocolate:

And I, researching old fashioned foods, had to try the Baked Alaska:

A lovely meal. I can’t wait to go back. We ended with a nightcap on Boo’s roof deck:
