db Bistro Moderne – Miami

db bistro moderne

Our last stop in Miami was to a New York classic – Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Moderne. So does this count as Miami or New York if it is a chain?  We’ll have to head uptown and try db Bistro Moderne to find out!  Or not.  For those of you who read our disappointing write up on Boulud Sud, you’ll know we are in no rush to hit another Danielle restaurant uptown. Nor were we … Continue reading

The Marrow NYC – Harold Dieterle

The Marrow

The Marrow is Harold Dieterle’s newest NYC restaurant located in the former West Village Paris Commune space.  We were fans of Paris Commune, if not for the food, for the excellent location and rather large space for the West Village.  When it closed we were disappointed.  They had a great bar upstairs and a wine bar in the basement.  It sat vacant for quite some time, but then we heard Harold Dieterle was picking up … Continue reading
