db Brasserie boasts a wine list of approximately 300 international selections, curated by Boulud’s group Wine Director Daniel Johnnes and db Brasserie Sommelier Devin Zendel.
The list pays tribute to the glories of American Wine, which are presented in three categories : PIONEERS ‘the first to prove the quality of American terroir’; NEW FRONTIER ‘young wineries inspired by their old-world counterparts’; and CLASSICS ‘next generation American winemaking, classics in their own right’.
The spacious restaurant seats 280 diners, including two private dining rooms, as well as a casual bar and lounge.
Later in the Summer Chef Boulud will be opening a new restaurant (DBGB) in Washington, DC. It’s a return, of sorts, for him to the Nation’s Capital where he started in America.
Chef Boulud is The Chairman of Bocuse d’Or USA (Thomas Keller is the President) supporting Team USA in the prestigious international culinary competition which is the Bocuse d’Or held in Lyon every other year. Daniel explains why this is very important to the American culinary community. The next competition in Lyon is set for January 27 & 28th in 2015.
