Bonfire... what's the story?

  • p


I'm heading to Bonfire tonight, Todd's new restaurant in The Park Plaza Hotel. Wanted to get anyone's review and menu suggestions...

  1. Looking forward to your review...I stopped in a few weeks back but haven't eaten there yet.


    1. I've been a couple times (and usually with a big group that is in to sharing) so I've sampled a lot of the menu and have some suggestions. Appetizers: the Seoul-style short ribs are the best app on the menu. The calamari is good but standard. IF you sit at the bar, try a taco or two from the taqueria menu (the duck and the tuna are both excellent). If you are seated in the restaurant proper, ask if you can get a taco sampler - if they aren’t too busy they might be willing. Main courses: steak is the best thing on the menu and, in my mind; the porterhouse (Pricey at $48) and the "Cowboy" steak (~$32) are my favorites. I didn't love the prime rib -- fabulous texture but bland. Of course that is always my complaint about prime rib. The triple lamb rack is also very, very special. The venison was good but I didn’t love the sauce it was in -- too overpowering. I did not like the Veal Oscar. I've never been hungry enough to try the desserts after the HUGE portions you get.

      I'd love to hear what you think so please give us your review!
