Washington DC - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Daniel Boulud

1 December 2014

Chef Daniel Boulud, who recently opened DBGB Kitchen And Bar in Washington, DC, reveals his favourite places to eat in the city


Mark Furstenburg is a long-time friend and a master of the art of bread-making. He was one of the first bakers in DC to make bread the European way and, of course, being French, I always enjoyed going there to get a good baguette. Bread Furst Bakery is not in the centre of DC, but it is a destination in itself. I don’t usually eat pastries for breakfast, but when I am in DC and I want a pastry, I go here. The pain au chocolat are the best, but also the homemade scones, and the tea and espresso, too. I always buy a Palladin loaf to pay homage to Jean-Louis, Washington’s first great chef and a mentor to all of us.

Every city has a great ramen shop, and for me Daikaya is DC’s. The Sapporo-style ramen soup is excellent, and the bar is a fun place to slurp it. But what I really love about Daikaya is that it is two restaurants in one. Upstairs is an izakaya, a Japanese tavern, with Japanese style tapas, which are creative and delicious. Making two concepts work in one space is not easy to do, but the three owners – Yama Jewayni, Katsuya Fukushima and Daisuke Utagawa – make it work flawlessly.

Everyone is talking about Rose’s Luxury, and it’s easy to see why. My executive chef at DBGB in DC, Ed Scarpone, agrees it holds up to the hype. It has a casual and comfortable atmosphere with excellent drinks and menu. Chef Aaron Silverman says he’s just getting started, and I’m excited to see what comes next. As a chef you have to keep evolving, challenging yourself and your team to be creative and inspired every day.
