Is dinner and a movie your idea of a great night out? For Me and Jamie, it is. Not only does Bogart’s Bar and Grille offer amazing mouth watering food, they are connected to the movie theater so you can either see a movie before hand, after eating, OR, take it into the special part of the theater that is connected to Bogart’s. That ticket will run you a little more than a normal ticket, but it is worth it.
Also, for all of my In the Biz people- Monday nights are for you! Enjoy 50% off beer, wine and liquor at the bars and dining rooms. Plus, Cinemark is offering In-the-Biz employees $6.65 movies tickets! *Must show proof of industry employment.
–What is not to love about that?!
Okay so now on to the good part; the food! I was recently invited to attend a media dinner with some of my favorite people to get a sneak peak at the new menu items that Chef Aaron is rolling out. We had a great group for this dinner and we all enjoyed the delicious appetizers, entrees, and cocktails that we were able to try.
A Miso-Maple glazed edamame started the night off in the right direction. It was salty and sweet, a perfect match in my book.
After the edamame we were brought a trio of hummus, the beet was my favorite in color, but in taste, it was definitely the avocado. It tasted like guacamole, and I could not get enough of it.
Every restaurant seems to be doing brussels these days, and Bogart’s is no exception. This particular dish had candied pecans, apple-wood smoked bacon and a sweet vinaigrette. I loved the crunchy sweetness with the added saltiness of the bacon. Loved this dish! It left me wanting more.
The next dish is one of my go-to favorites when trying out a menu of a new restaurant. Tomato and Mozzarella salad. High quality mozz, with heirloom tomatoes, and a balsamic reduction. Finished with salt to bring all of the flavors together.
My two favorite dishes of the night were the Sesame Seared Tuna and the Orange Miso Glazed Salmon with black forbidden rice. When I say that I loved the rice, it would be an understatement. I could have eaten an entire meal consisting of just the rice, which had been cooked with coconut milk to balance out the rest of the dish. Perfectly cooked salmon, and aggressively seasoned. I know what I will be ordering on my next visit!
Need a new place to grab a taco on Taco Tuesday? These babies will do the trick. Mojo marinated pork tacos with a fresh charred pineapple salsa, pickled red onion, and cotija cheese.
As if I wasn’t full enough from all of these delicious dishes one after the other, we ended the savory portion with the ultimate comfort foods– POT ROAST and truffle mashed potatoes served with a side of honey roasted carrots.
And Chicken Milano, crunchy mustard crust with sweet potato ravioli, and perfectly seasoned broccoli.
Now onto dessert, which normally I could take or leave but I enjoyed all three of them! Which for me is an amazing thing.
Mint Chocolate Chip Gelato “Ice Cream” Sandwich- MY FAVORITE! Mint chocolate chip anything is the way to my heart.
NY Style Cheesecake- perfect texture, and taste. Felt like I was sitting in NY!
Apple Bread Pudding- least of my favorites, just because of the texture, but the taste was delicious.
