Everything tastes better with a dash of sass

Rel’s Ravenous Review of The Biltmore

Are you the type of person who, when choosing a restaurant, wants to go to a place “where everybody knows your name”? Well look no further than The Biltmore Bar and Grille in Newton, Massachusetts. My Dad goes to the Biltmore all the time for lunch and since I’m finally home from school, I met him there yesterday for a nosh. 

The menu at the Biltmore has your traditional American bar food with a twist. Here’s what we got…
These are the Lobster tacos. I didn’t get to try them (not kosher) but my Dad devoured them. He said the Lobster was really fresh and worked well with the mango.  I’ve actually had mango in my sushi before- it definitely tastes good with seafood. 

Then we got the Caprese Salad- no surprise there. As you can see, the tomatoes were super juicy and crisp, and the mozzarella was creamy and fresh. As usual, it was the perfect combination. 

Then my Dad ordered the crab cakes. Again, I can’t eat these but they smelled great! The cakes are sitting on little mountains of Boston Baked Beans and are smothered in a creamy sauce. These definitely aren’t your typical crab cakes.  They didn’t look greasy at all- definitely an echelon higher than the usual pub fried food. 

As a main meal Dad ordered the bone in tenderloin steak. What a hunk-a-meat! The steak is sprinkled with fried onion strings and served with the traditional potatoes and green beans. I wish I had taken a picture of the plate after my Dad finished.  Let me paint you a picture- a bone…and that’s it. I haven’t seen anyone pick up a bone and pull the meat off since my dog used to get our leftovers. 

I hope you guys are enjoying the pictures! I finally got a camera so I can share all of my restaurant visits and cooking experiences with you. Overall the Biltmore’s atmosphere is a comfortable, traditional bar and grille feel but with some extra class. Attached to the restaurant is a huge room with a bar and more TV’s than I can count.  Go there to watch the big game and grab a bud with your friends. You can even play a game of fooseball if you want! The crowd is mostly late 20′s to Dad’s with their colleagues grabbing a post-work drink; so basically, everyone’s invited! And there are 22 different types of beer on tap. Just don’t drink them all in one sitting! 

So friends, if you’re ever in Boston, definitely check out the Biltmore for your “Cheers” experience; eat some food, have a drink and unwind as you watch the game or relax on the comfy sofa chairs with your family. There’s something for everyone here so come on over.

Bon eating,

    I did indeed enjoy your pictures. They were great. I’ve never seen crab cakes on baked beans. I learn something new everyday.
