On Tuesday, August 30 Jenny and I boldly ventured into Brave Horse Tavern (BHT) for the first time. The ambiance was causal and friendly. The sign at the front invited us to seat ourselves. BHT is the kind of place you could go after a long day and grab a beer (and I don’t drink beer, so I’d have a glass of wine or a cocktail) with your boss, or a friend or go on a date night! It was fun and the crowd was young, hip and attractive. We took seats at a high table with bar stools.
Let the menu examination begin – we both drooled (not literally) over the options, as we caught up on our weekends and upcoming social events. We decided to both get burgers and share an order of fries.
My burger – the burger of the week – Dante’s “Inferno” Burger! Watch out now! Jamaican jerked turkey breast, jalapeño aioli, pickled red onions and sweet mango relish – oh it’s a party of fiery fierceness in your mouth! To accompany my burger and our shared order of fries, I had sangria! Now where my burger impressed with its powerhouse of tastes, my sangria fizzled with the lack thereof. Being candid, it was flat, perhaps overly iced and the mixed flavors of the wine, fruit, brandy and soda did not impress this Seattle foodie’s taste buds. That’s Real talk for you.
The finish aka dessert – Jenny and I decided to share, which is a good idea because as the saying goes – a moment on the lips forever on the hips! So we dined on a baked to order chocolate chip cookie a la mode. The cookie was decent, not as hot as I hoped it would come out. However, the ice cream was divine! And it did NOT disappoint! A creamy vanilla bean! Awww…it completed the meal!
All in all BHT is a hip, trendy restaurant on the rise, and the price is right! TD definitely knows what he is doing. Now onto some Serious Pie with my partner in crime/eating, J. Kor! We’ll be there next Tuesday around 7:30pm. Join us if you can! It’ll be EPIC – It might even change lives!
