But I digress. This isn't a post about the good old down and dirty days of punk rockers and junkies; this is an ode to delicious food and drink. And delicious food and drink is served up right at DBGB. Though a bit out of my price range (this is the fancy new Bowery, not your neighborhood dive,) the food is well worth it, especially when your pops is treating you to welcome you back to the big bad city that landed you in crutches. Like many of my restaurant choices these days this spot is not very well suited to the non-meat eaters out there but can you blame me - I need the protein to keep my out of work muscles alive! So if you're into upscale, kinda pricey meats off the grill, this is the place for you.

But if you're in the mood for some swanky bbq grub, head on down to the Bowery and embrace the modern world at DBGB. The dim lighting and super soft leather banquets make this an awesome date spot. It's a bit cavernous so it can get noisy which might be good for a first date if it's going poorly. Check it out, but go someplace else for dessert.
