A Lunch Feast at db bistro moderne
Several weeks ago, I met up with Sachiko from Tabelog (sort of like a Yelp for foodies!). We had been emailing back and forth for several weeks and she suggested that we meet up for lunch. I couldn't resist the opportunity to meet a fellow foodie and suggested db bistro moderne, a tasty spot I've been to near my office.
Since we're all about trying new foods (and honestly taking the best food photos!), we had to order the famous burger! It is a Sirloin Burger filled with Braised Short Ribs, Foie Gras (WHAT?) and Black Truffle (YES!), served on a Parmesan Bun and served Pommes Frites (fancy fries!). This was one of the best burgers I've ever had! The Foie Gras is mixed within it, so you don't feel like you get a huge chunk - the richness is incorporated very well. The condiments are served just as fancy as you'd expect in a restaurant of this quality. I'd recommend splitting with someone as it is a lot for one person to handle.
We also split the Lamb Ragu Pappardelle. It was absolutely fantastic. The sauce was rich and the pasta was al dente. The bread is super yummy to dip in it as well!
The pasta was part of a prix-fixe lunch (two courses for $32). None of the appetizers were speaking to me, so I got the Warm Chocolate Fondant - aka fancy lava cake - and MAN it was SO good. Sachiko said she isn't a huge dessert person and she loved it...at least the part she was able to get from me! We each got a cappuccino to go with it - yum!
This is a great spot for a business (or blogger) lunch. Delicious food and you can get in/out within an hour. GET THE BURGER AND WEAR A BIB!
