DC Buzz: Daniel Boulud Opens Restaurant at CityCenterDC

Chef Daniel Boulud has made a splash in Washington D.C. with a buzzy restaurant opening at CityCenter DC. DBGB Kitchen and Bar is the first restaurant for the acclaimed chef in the nation’s capital, though it’s a veritable homecoming because he worked in D.C. restaurants in the 1980s before heading north to New York.

Boulud describes it as a “tribute to casual American dishes I’ve come to love since moving to the states, all done with a French flair.” On the menu you’ll find seven different house-made sausages, three house-ground gourmet burgers, and seasonal Lyon-inspired cuisine. Friday night’s opening event was a splashy affair with a number of celebrities in attendance.

To quote The Washington Post, “If there were a perfect metaphor for the decadent, outsize role that chef Daniel Boulud is certain to play in the D.C. food scene, it would be the choice of dessert” for DBGB’s grand opening. “Boulud and assistants wheeled out a show-stopping more than six-foot-long baked Alaska, one of the French chef ‘s signature dishes, which he flambéed with a blowtorch and passed around the room to his assembled guests.”
