Bourbon Steak is a go to in DC.. and a place W and I like to head to just cuz… especially when we’re craving a good burger. But I don’t think we’ve ever gone for a burger and ONLY gotten a burger. As soon as I was done with work I slipped on some clothes and we headed over for some food.
When I sat down I ordered a champagne cocktail.. but was quickly presented with a yummy special one from the head bartender, Dwayne. YUM!
[Note: this drink will reappear in a Baltimore post!!!!]
Look at him at work.
Like always we were soon after presented with the Trio of Duck Fries. YUM – Crisp, flavorful and yummy, piping hot, they NEVER disappoint. And I love how they switch up flavors and dipping sauces all the time. WOOHOO.
Raw Oysters with a Kimchi Sauce…
Delicious and fresh. Tasty. The kimchi wasn’t chunky like I thought it would be. And see those little white balls? They’re little rice balls.
An amazing Rockfish Crudo
Sooooo many elements but the taste came out sooo simple and fresh. A mixture of sweet – from the melon – and salty, different textures of the raw fish to the crunch of the shallot and then the creamy sauce.
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Mozzarella…
That hand is none other’s than Exec Chef Adam Sobel‘s…
I love anything with tomatoes and mozz. Maybe not the best season for tomatoes this year but I thought it was tasty anyways. I loved the little marshmallows of mozz! So cute and pillow-y. FLUFF.
Deconstructed Bahn Mi
This was SOOOO GOOD. Everything about it was amazing. Creamy liver pate on a nice brioche… and then some meats on the side. AMAZING.
Calamari with Chorizo and Brioche Croutons
This was a HUUUUUUUGE bowl of squid. SO freaking much. It was delicious but just SOOO much. I could’ve had a little more chorizo as well :] Teehee.
Sheep Ricotta Agnolotti with Veal Cheeks and Bone Marrow
This was SOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Delicious! The cheeks literally MELTED in my mouth as soon as it hit my tongue. BAM! And the chunks of bone marrow, ahhhh meat butter. <3
And while we were gonna split a burger…. We realized we wanted our own.
I even got a nice salad on the side, NOM NOM I need my greens!!!
I finished mine. WOOT. W didn’t *point and laugh*
BUT we always have room for desserts. Yes. PLURAL!
BSDC Red Velvet Cake
tainori chocolate cremeux, cocoa nib gelato, bulls blood
This was probably the best Red Velvet cake I’ve ever had. SO. FREAKING GOOD.
Chevre Cheesecake with Virginia Berries
strawberries, pistachio streusel, basil gelato
I wasn’t as into the cheesecake but I LOOOOVED the basil gelato. It was beautifully plated though. I think it was a goat’s cheese – cheesecake or something.
BTW, here’s a sexy pic of Adam holding the A-5 Wagyu Beef straight from Japan. Best of the best.
