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.

Fun with Four Burgers

July 30, 2010

That’s my half-eaten grass-fed beef burger and giant plate of half and half fries (sweet and regular potatoes) with smoked Gouda cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, jalapenos and tomatoes at Four Burgers in Central Square ($10.43).

Love the concept, toppings and prices but as burgers go it was strictly OK.

But I’ll probably just keep going back for the delicious and plentiful fries with dipping options like guacamole and chipotle aoili – and you can make your picks online for takeout.

A burger as big as my face

June 14, 2010

This ginormous thing is mouthwatering and cost me only $6.20 at Mike’s in Davis Square –  a fraction of what they charge for a fraction of the meat at that fancy burger place across the street.

Of course, if you are looking for the best burger, you should head to R.F. O’Sullivan’s on Beacon Street. For now, this is doing fine to satisfy my sudden meat- craving.
