Time Out says

Moderne? Not quite. This carpeted, casual counterpoint to chef Daniel Boulud’s blockbuster Daniel is showing its age (it opened in 2001). Even DB’s comically decadent burger—comprising ground sirloin stuffed with red-wine-braised short ribs, foie gras and black truffle shavings—feels a bit dated in a culinary landscape that includes places like Stand and BLT Burger. Still, it’s a worthy spectacle and, like most of the sprawling menu (it veers from gnocchi to coq au vin), rather delicious. The pre-theater–friendly eatery may be an old dog with old tricks—but it still merits a pat on the head.

There's so much more to love at this restaurant than the eponymous DB Burger. The plated desserts are exceptional, and sidling up to the bar for oysters, a glass of wine and some small bites is one of the only reliable options in the Midtown dining desert.

Went for lunch and was temped to try the renowned burger that is stuffed with foie gras, short ribs and truffles, but opted for the much healthier salmon and lobster salad. Quintessential French cuisine in an elegant setting. Great service perfect for a business lunch or on your way to the theater.
