Michael Mina’s newest extension of his Bourbon Steak franchise has landed at the Americana Mall. I recently visited to see if there was any fire behind the smoke billowing around Glendale.
As this is my neighborhood I watched the facade come up brick by brick on the corner of Broadway and Colorado. The finished product makes you want to do nothing but go inside!
Unfortunately it is not as “rat-pack” as I had hoped inside, but give me live music and I can let the lack of leather booths go for a night.
The bread and duck fat fries that come at the start of every meal are reason to stay for the $60 steak
Duck Spring Rolls might not be what you would expect from a traditional steakhouse, but it is one of the most popular menu items at this location. Were we in Bourbon Steak D.C, I would have ordered the Fois Gras Terrine.
Although tempted by the tomahawk rib-eye, my husband and I split the porterhouse for two. Which is more than enough for three, but we Americans are excessive after all.
Does Truffle Mac & Cheese count as a vegetable? Well it should! If you’re trying to keep it on the leaner side then your best option is the Roasted Cauliflower as the running theme of Michael Mina’s side dishes is to start with cream.
There is no better way to top off an evening of indulgent carnivorism then with a A Bourbon Flight smoked table-side.
Just don’t try this at home…or you might end up with a small fire and series of forever charred glasses.
