RESTAURANTS OF THE MONTH | Burgers and Bourbon with BJ Coleman | 4


***Restaurant of the Month*** LANDMARC, NYC

Gruyere Cheeseburger and Fries at Landmarc

Manhattan does not have traditional malls, and depending on with whom you speak, that can be a blessing or a curse!  I prefer to see it as the former.  With Madison and 5th Avenues, and areas such as Soho, Tribeca and the trendy Meatpacking District, shopping and dining options are abundant in the city just [...]

Fried Green Tomatoes with Herb Goat Cheese!!!

I had the pleasure of spending Christmas Eve catching up with friends over meals and drinks in my hometown of Washington DC, but I ended the day with my brother and sister over dinner at Founding Farmers, a suggestion by my brother and one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to! Located on Pennsylvania Avenue [...]

White Anchovy Bruschetta

While many of you discovered the brilliance of celebrity chef Tom Colicchio as the lead judge on the hit Bravo show Top Chef, I became familiar with his distinct talent years ago over dinner at what has now become one of my favorite restaurants in the world – CRAFT BAR! I stopped by Craft Bar [...]

***Restaurant of the Week*** RUTH’S CHRIS STEAKHOUSE, Philadelphia

Filet Mignon & Lobster stuffed with Crab

My mother LOVES Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.  I remember the first time she took us there in Washington DC as teens and I fell in love with the now legendary steak house!  I was about 15 years old at the time and don’t think I had ever seen steak or potatoes so big!  That was about [...]

mr chow lobster

If you know me, then you know one of my favorite restaurants in the world is Mr. Chow!  The chinese restaurant is so popular it has two locations in New York, one in London, a recent one in Miami and one coming to Las Vegas!  But one of their best locations has to be their [...]

***Restaurant of the Week*** BAR PITTI, NYC

Eggplant Parmesan and Meatballs at Bar Pitti

When it comes to Manhattan restaurants where you want to see and be seen,  Bar Pitti does it best.  Their outside seating, next door to the yellow-themed  Da Silvano (the two restaurants started as partners, but disagreements led to lawsuits which led to two separate restaurants), has played host to the entertainment and fashion elite, including [...]

***Restaurant of the Week***: RED, Miami

Tapas at RED

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times before: Miami is my favorite city in the world!  The hotels and restaurants alone make for a luxurious city with plenty of options to showoff and show out.  Prime 112 is my favorite steakhouse in Miami, but over the weekend I stopped into RED. [...]

***Restaurant of the Week***: NINE, LAS VEGAS

Nine's SURF & TURF

We all know there are many dining options in Las Vegas!  The various luxurious hotels offer the best in eating, shopping and living.  But, in my opinion, one of the best restaurants the city has to offer is not even on the famous Vegas Strip, but located a mile or so away at the Palms [...]
