The Cuozz chats up Daniel Boulud to pry out a detail or two about his upcoming Bowery restaurant, fka DBGB, which will not, he repeats, NOT be a burger restaurant. Instead it will be, "'More casual even than a bistro,' he said first. Next: 'A cross between a brasserie and a diner.' Then, with a chuckle: 'It will be the greatest diner on earth.'"
Boulud also tells Steve-o that it will include such vague notions as "traditional things," "tricks of the trade," rolling carts with a leg of veal or beef, and of course "interesting sausage." As far as the design on the 150 seat space (here's the floorplan), it will "reflect the Bowery's historic role as home to kitchen supply stores." Oh D-Biggity, what does it all mean? Most importantly, of course, Boulud says it will be "hipper" than his pricey uptown affairs. According to the Cuozz the space, which was set to open in April '08, will debut sometime this winter.
