Historically, father-son teams have excelled in everything from sports and politics to business and the big screen, assuming they accomplish their goal of destroying every copy of Cadence. Teaming up to stuff your face, Bobby's, opening today.
Housed in the old Convenient, Bobby's is an upscale 104-seat, 25-table American contempo bar/grille from a local father and son who both share the same name, with high back leather booths, hardwood floors, giant oil paintings of the American flag and a bald eagle, and a brass-fixtured handmade black walnut bar so cool, it'll make your head explode, especially if you're allergic to walnuts. BG grills up meaty entrees like a 12oz rib eye in a mushroom cream reduction w/ roasted garlic whipped potatoes; a dry-rubbed pork tenderloin slathered w/ a special house BBQ sauce accompanied by sweet corn succotash and red bliss potato hash; and a grilled bone-in rack of lamb served w/ cheddar scalloped potatoes and topped w/ a rosemary-infused demi-glaze that met an alcohol-infused Ashton's glaze in a LA club. From the sea, there's a scallion emulsion panko-horseradish encrusted Atlantic salmon w/ Parmesan pea risotto; fresh native haddock smothered in an Asiago sour cream and red onion mushroom sauté; and Twisted Scampi -- pico de gallo-topped shrimp, scallops, and lobster in a white wine garlic butter with spinach linguine, and an alarming penchant for cruelty towards small creatures.
If a quick bite and drinks is more your bag, BG rocks sandwiches like the skirt steak w/ roasted garlic chive butter, and four kinds of sliders (filet, buffalo chicken, portobello mushroom, and Maine lobster) that can be washed down with a small selection of draughts and wines that includes Leffe Brune Ale and 14 Hands Merlot, none of which clapped when Charlie rose up against his dad and fixed that broken windmill, because they couldn't believe that was the film's climax.
