At Daniel Boulud's hectic bistro, the rooms are a little pokey and the kitchen can take glacial lengths of time. But the food is generally worth the wait, and it's always fun to see formerly desiccated society matrons bravely gobbling down brawny dishes like stuffed pig's trotters. The noble DB Burger is stuffed with truffle-and-foie gras-laced short ribs, and is accompanied by silver stirrup cup of pommes frites.

Pre-Theater Menu

Tue.—Sat., 5 p.m.—6:30 p.m., three courses, $50
