French fries told Burger ”Lean On Me Boo! You’re My BFF 🙂

DB Bistro Moderne is one of Chef Daniel Boulud’s contemporary French bistro restaurant with modern American twist. Restaurant is located on 44 street, a few blocks off Times Square in Midtown. Lunchtime was filled with the typical corporate midtown lunchtime crowd. During weekday between 11:15am-2:30pm they serves $32 two courses lunch Prix Fixe. I was here for patrolling their famous original DB burger. This burger is on ”Bucket Dish NYC”  You know what that mean!!!! You MUST eat this burger before you die!!! I heard about this burger for a while but I wan’t interested to try one. Seriously!? Come On! $35 for burger!? I thought….. but I’m so glad I finally checked it off from my coronary Bucket List. I shared burger with Liz a.k.a Personalitini and let me tell you! Burger was perfect medium rare and I could taste full flavor of Foie Gras & Black Truffle. It was worth every penny. Also we shared pasta and dessert.  . I’m so not dessert girl but WOW! WARM CHOCOLATE FONDANT – Vanilla Ice Cream, Dark Chocolate Sorbet was the best warm chocolate cake I ever had. Well done 🙂

GRILLED OYSTERS, GARLIC, PARSLEY ♥♥♥♥1/2

 Dirty French is now open for lunch! I had Lamb burger and dry aged beef sandwich to share with friend. Both dishes were just OK but flatbread was warm and delish. I also highly recommend you to try Grilled oysters! This dish was O.M.G the best grilled oyster I ever had in my life! I’m just warning you it was very very garlicky! Atmosphere was lovely at lunchtime 🙂 I would love to try Lamb Carpaccio from dinner menu next time.
