The Boheme rocks Sunday brunch

September 1, 2010

We had a grand and fulfilling time brunching at the award-winning The Boheme, a signature restaurant at the luxury Orlando hotel Grand Bohemian.

Decor – funky. Food – fresh and plentiful. Verdict – five stars!

The Sunday jazz brunch (only $35) is an eclectic and decadent  spread covering everything from Eggs Boheme (a twist on the traditional benedict), lox, fresh crab legs – hot or cold, roasted veggies, Belgian waffles, an omelet station, breakfast meats and mouthwatering desserts.

The chefs even created their signature dish for us — a crusted filet mignon with smoked blue cheese that was tasty and tender an our waitress refilled our mimosa glasses more times than we could count.

Reservations are recommended and  valet parking in complimentary if you dine there.


A superlative breakfast at Bull and Bear

August 28, 2010

A tribute to the NYC Waldorf restaurant, the Bonnet Creek Bull and Bear prepared us a stellar breakfast even though they are usually only open for dinner.

We started off with a trio of fresh juices – watermelon, apple and celery and a delicious and spicy carrot and ginger blend.

The bread basket was one of the best I have ever had from the plain croissant to the unique truffle scone and monkey bread. Add the truffle butter and it was absolutely mind-blowing. I really had to try and not slip that butter in my purse.

All of this deliciousness faded when the 36-day 38-ounce dry aged certified Angus prime grade beef steak was rolled in and carved  table side by GM Manny Belete.

As a huge steak fan, I can swear that I cannot remember one so tender and tasty. This is the first restaurant in Florida to serve this high cut of meat. For the quality it’s actually quite a steal at $95 for two.

Regarding his restaurant and menu, Chef David Sears said his secret is to strive for the best but keep it simple.
