Poetry in Motion

Chef and Restaurateur Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Stephane IstelIt takes precision, dedication, passion and a poetic mix of dozens of talented individuals to build and operate a successful restaurant.  There is no magic formula, but indeed there is magic.  That magic is contagious and evident in the relationships we build with each other, with our customers, with our sister restaurant Lumière, and with the industry.


Like so many players in a well-orchestrated production, our staff rise to the occasion each and every day - inspired by the fresh seasonal ingredients of the Pacific Northwest, and inspired by you - to deliver what many call the finest French Bistro experience in the country.


And, like all world-class restaurants, our db never sleeps. We are a 24 hour a day, seven day per week, 363 day per year re-invention of culinary inspiration, extraordinary talent, critically-acclaimed dining and guest experience, and the very best clientele in the world.
