Every Sunday night, I fall asleep to "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" on the Food Network. Puffy tacos, green chile burgers, and even Asian dumplings, is there anything he can't do? Well apparently, YES.
Went to Mesa Grill a few years back, and wasn't particularly impressed, but decided to give him another chance and headed for brunch at Bar Americain. Was in such a rush that morning, I forgot to bring my camera! Had to make it work with my blackberry.
Love restaurants with open kitchens And the shellfish cocktails: shrimp-tomatillo, crab-coconut and lobster-avocado were delish But NOT the shrimp and grits with bacon, scallions and garlic (all I tasted was mush and salt)
And certainly NOT Miss Stephanie's biscuits and cream gravy, sausage & scrambled eggs
No disrespect Iron Chef Flay, but even Ronald McDonald can cook up a better breakfast.
Add to that a bloody mary and a mimosa (mandatory, of course), and the bill came out to $94.67. The best thing about our botched brunch? The bread basket. Now that's just wrong!
We all have to eat in order to live, so why not make the most of it and enjoy life's every bite? From trying new and different restaurants to cooking in my tiny Manhattan studio, I'm a young Korean-American professional in New York City ready to taste it all and live to blog about it!
