Each year, I try to do something special to celebrate our birthdays (mine, hubs, and even Rockshic Baby!!! See baby’s first birthday celebration). More recently, we had the pleasure of celebrating hubs birthday in Beacon (can you say, couples getaway please?). Before leaving for the Hudson Valley, however – we got a little dose of NYC culture via both dining and theater.
This time? It was a combination of “The Queen,” starring Helen Mirren (amazing btw, highly recommend!!), followed by dining at DB Bistro. You know, just another notch on the belt for Mr. Boulud. Located close to the Harvard Club of New York City, it’s a great spot for dining if you happen to be in the theater district (aka Midtown West). It was a convenient walk from the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater, where the Queen was showing. We made it just in time before closing (it was midtown after all…)
All of the food there was good, I highly recommend the venison & foie gras terrine with black truffle and lingonberry. However, if you’re going to make the effort of going to the restuarant, then I say go big and order the namesake DB burger – sirloin burger filled with braised short ribs, foie gras and black truffle on a parmesan bun (yes, I know, it’s insane!!!). Absolutely worth it.
Hubby thought so… happy belated birthday my love. Am I a lucky girl or what?
