Leen Eats: Butcher & Bottle Review!

Just because summer is over for the kiddies does not mean summer is over for those of us who do not have kiddies, especially those of us who are post-grad or attend online classes (me, me, me!)! Connor and I were sitting around doing absolutely nothing a few weeks ago when he just randomly asked if he could take me to dinner. I, of course, said yes because I was starving AND because who can say no to a meal?!

Butcher & Bottle Review -

We looked up menus of a few places online, but they were too expensive for a last-minute date night. I remember a few of my friends mentioning a place called Butcher & Bottle. We looked up the menu and the first thing we saw were these Sloppy John Fries as an appetizer. That was all it took.

Butcher & Bottle Review -

Do you blame me? They were french fries with ground beef, sour cream, cheese, bacon and pickles but since neither of us like pickles we asked if they would leave them off. If I could explain how hungry I was when these arrived to the table there would be less judgement for how quickly we ate them. The dish was delicious and we are thinking the dish is named after one of their Chefs, John Bertrand. Bless you John Bertrand. 

I went basic and ordered the Fish and Chips and Connor tried the Stuffed Salmon. His meal had salmon stuffed with goat cheese and spinach and with was resting on a bed of mashed potatoes and carrots. It was mouth-watering. The fish and chips were delicious - but honestly,  Old Blind Dog still has the best. 

Butcher & Bottle Review -

Since Butcher & Bottle is a gastro pub, they had a lot of local beers on their menu. Connor tried Hop Hash from Sweetwater brewing and he really liked it. I stuck with water because decision-making has become too hard for myself.

Outside they had a couple of corn hole boards set up and a pretty big seating area. Butcher & Bottle would be a cool place to hang out on a summer evening and we’re probably going to go back sometime with a few of our friends. So look out, John Bertrand, I’m coming for those Sloppy John Fries.
