Four new burgers at the tavern...
Village Tavern is one of my favorite restos in The Bistro Group. After hearing about Chef Josh Boutwood's new premium burger creations, I dragged my mom and daughter for a late lunch. I needed a break from cooking and Wagyu burgers sound amazingly delicious.
While waiting for the food, we were given complimentary bread that's warm to the touch. Feeling famished, I broke a piece and dipped it into the herbed olive oil. Nice, but I prefer Italianni's version of the dip with some balsamic vinegar.
My daughter opted for the kids' spaghetti, which unfortunately she didn't like. It had an interesting Italian tomato-ish start rounded with a sweet finish. My mom and I liked it a lot, and debated on who would eat that when we got home, haha!
As for the burgers, I was contemplating on getting either the Monte Carlo or the Waldorf since my mom beat me to ordering the Octoberfest. I finally decided on the Monte Carlo: Wagyu patty topped with St. Nectaire cheese, black olive tapenade, and Prosciutto ham. The Wagyu patty itself was good, I requested it to be cooked medium, and it was juicy enough to enjoy. However I'm not really a fan of olives, and on hindsight, maybe I should have gone with the Waldorf instead.
I took a couple of bites from my mom's Octoberfest burger, and this one I liked better. It has Swiss cheese and braised red onions, and served with some beer mustard which I absolutely loved. Hope they sell this in a bottle or jar so I could enjoy it with other meats at home.
I got the Mexican Wagyu burger for my husband since he's a fan of spicy stuff. It's flame grilled Wagyu patty topped with chili and spicy queso sauce. When I asked him how it was (since I couldn't take another more bite), he said it was good. The smell of it alone was enticing, and I was actually salivating while looking at it.
If you love burgers, head on to BGC and try Chef Boutwood's new creations.
