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.


Food with a view at Artbar

August 23, 2010

Headed to Artbar last week for a Restaurant Week lunch – only $20 for three courses.  The food was all right but the patio seating and view was splendid on a nice summer day.

The gazpacho was a cool concept with a twist, but slightly more oily and sour than I liked; the hangar steak was just right – tender and juicy – with creamy polenta; the dessert was delicious but I wish I could have had a bigger helping!

A special mention to the fried crab sandwich which my colleagues had – it was mouthwatering, crispy and super fresh.

It’s Restaurant Week – almost!

August 12, 2010

It’s coming up next week and I was at a very tasty kickoff in Cambridge yesterday to celebrate!

Given how much I love eating out and good food, this is a classic Sir Eatsalot annual event. I have group reservations this year for lunch at Cambridge’s Artbar and dinner at Sibling Rivalry. Hurry up and make yours because slots are probably already full. You are better off calling the restaurants directly because they have limited slots on OpenTable.

A great deal for Bengal Cafe

July 20, 2010

Try some homemade Bangladeshi food – in Cambridge.

Eversave is offering a $10 coupon for $20 worth of food at Bengal Cafe.

While most of the food is similar to Indian there are some specialties. I recommend the morog polau (chicken in rice), roopchanda fry (fried spicy pomfret fish) and the haleem (lentils with meat).

Oh and don’t ignore the masala chai with samosas or shingara, the quintessential Bengali snack.
