Today Daniel Boulud tells Cuozzo that, more than merely a burger joint, the Bowery restaurant hes opening this winter will be "a cross between a brasserie and a diner" or, to be clearer, "the greatest diner on earth." Boulud says his sous-chef at DB Bistro Moderne, Jim Leiken, will prepare "lots of traditional things" and "old-fashioned tricks of the trade," meaning rolling carts of "leg of veal or lamb or beef" and "interesting sausage." Interesting, indeed. So what was with the whole burger joint thing? We held a contest, and everything! "That's to keep [the blogs] busy until I tell them what I'm going to do," he tells Cuozzo. Ah, Daniel, were not angry, were just disappointed in you er, wait a minute, what are we saying? Rolling meat carts? Were not disappointed at all.
