db Bistro or Vong--which is better P/T?
Both db Bistro and Vong have pre-theatre menus. Recognizing they are entirely different kinds of food, which would you recommend? One of my dining companions requested "something fun," but with an 8pm curtain, that seems a difficult task. We have one adventurous eater, one definitively not-adventurous eater, and one who is adventurous within the confines of not eating meat or shellfish.....
db is on the west side- very close to the theater district, while Vong is all the way over on the east side- which means you'll have to take into account the time it will take you to get to the theater.
Vong is definatley not for the unadventurous. I haven't been for years (even though it is on the block where I live) because I always thought it the weakest of the JJ restaurants. DB is in the right area and has a menu that should cover both your friends tastes. That being said, it is not exactly fun. Chic, Tastey and Expensive, yes, but fun?
Thanks all. I've eaten at Nougatine, but never at Vong. Seems like DB is the clear front-runner. We usually go to Uncle Nick's or Roberto Passon pre-theatre, but wanted to try something new......
