Chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud celebrated the 5th anniversary of his Bowery sausage house DBGB with a huge party in New York last night. The evening included some amazing dishes from the extraordinary Frenchman, like a veal leg the size of a stout 12-year-old boy. But it also featured excellent music curated with help from Marky Ramone (yes, the former drummer of the Ramones). A cook himself, Ramone produces pasta sauce in Brooklyn and became friends with Boulud when the chef started using the sauce in a dish at DBGB. For the big bash, the pair co-created their dream summer playlist. There lots of classics, but Ramone has a couple of surprising choices. We never pegged him for a Village People fan.
