I don’t know if you guys remember, but a while back Sung (my bestie/photographer extroadinaire) and I hit up DBGB to try their 3-course Sunday supper, and it was epic. Not only was the food delicious, I still can’t get over the price because it was such a good deal, lol. What can I say? I’m a sucker for bargains of all kinds, and y’all know that I’m all about glam living on a budget.
Located on 931 H Street NW, DBGB is perfect for any and every occasion, whether it be date night or a nom meal out with your fam. It’s in City Center so parking’s kind of a biyatch, but the food’s worth the struggle. Alright, so listen up. Every Sunday from 5PM to close, Chef Tang serves a 3-course dinner served family style, and it’s only $98 (!!!!)
If you’re wondering why I posted two pics of the bread, it’s because it’s magical bread. I know I have a thing for carbs, but this sourdough was straight up stupid. Fresh straight outta the oven served with buttery goodness that could make the pickiest eater cry tears of joy.
I’m not sure if Chef Nicolas’ going to change things up for Le Festin de Grand-Mére, but when we went, the first course consisted of three plates: a beet & endive salad, roasted carrots, and charcuterie. Everything was delicious, and I was really impressed with the portion size.
The main course was really something. There were three nomtastic options available, but we went with the roasted chicken, and it was such a good call! For those of you wondering, the other options were as follows: braised short rib with pomme purée and roasted root veggies and roast pork belly with potatoes lyonnaise and brussels sprouts.
The chicken was cooked in white wine and contained mushrooms and carrots. It came with rice pilaf, and it was comfort food at its finest. Both Sung and I were so, SO impressed. The sauce was incredible, and the meat was melt-in-your-mouth good.
And don’t ask me why, but it kind of reminded me of my mom’s galbi jjim except with chicken, lol. BTW, that’s a huge compliment because my mom’s food is amazeballs. I’m definitely taking her the next time she’s in town! I highly recommend that you guys go as well – it’s such a great deal, and I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll love it.
And last but not least, dessert. This is their apple tarte tatin, and it’s a caramelized apple served with cinnamon ice cream that’s garnished with an apple crisp. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of fruity desserts, but this was nice! Now, would I get it if I was ordering a la carte? Probably not, but it’s not a fair question because I’m a sucker for anything remotely chocolatey.
What do you guys prefer – desserts with fruits or super decadent sweets like lava cake? FUN FACT: Domino’s has one of the best chocolate lava cakes I’ve ever had. I know it sounds shady, but I swear to god, try it and you’ll be a believer. You’re welcome in advance.
