Olivier's Alsatian Flammenkuche

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

The current executive chef, Olivier Muller, is from Alsace, so I decided to try his specialty on the menu, Olivier’s Alsatian flammenkûche. It is absolutely exquisite! Flammenkûche is a typical Alsatian savory tart or flat bread, topped with cooked onions, smoked bacon and fromage blanc. Though the ingredients are all strong flavors, there’s a delicate restraint in assembling them on this thin-crusted tart that makes it an elegant and not overpowering treat. While The Bar at The Modern — another Alsatian-influenced restaurant — is one of my favorites in town and it also has a flammenkûche on its menu, it pales in comparison to the one at DB Bistro Moderne.
