Spring Menu Tasting at Weber Grill

*Disclaimer: Our dinner at Weber Grill was complimentary, but I was not required to write about it. I am sharing because everything was delicious!

Last week Neil and I had the opportunity to try out the new Spring menu at Weber Grill. We don’t usually eat at restaurants besides our favorite order-at-the-counter-places like Protein Bar, Naf Naf Grill, and Blaze, so it was definitely a nice treat.

Sidenote: I am the last person to find out about basic things (remember snipping tool?). I had no idea that Weber was a popular grill brand until my sister told me and Neil confirmed by blankly staring at me when I asked “hey, did you know Weber makes those little grills?”

Our complimentary bread came in the form of pretzel rolls, which normally wouldn’t have interested me since I don’t like pretzels, but the pretzel taste in these rolls was mild and they were deliciously soft.

Our first course was a Mediterranean salad complete with mixed greens, asparagus, artichokes, roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes, shaved red onions, olives, feta cheese, pepperoncini, herbed pita croutons, and white balsamic vinaigrette.  I am used to having no dressing so I totally should have asked for it on the side. Note to self for next time.

Then it came time for our main course selections.  We had four to choose from: The Prime Kettleburger, Weber’s BBQ Beef Brisket, Plan Grilled Chilean Sea Bass, or Bone-In Smoked Pork Chop.  I chose the burger because I hadn’t had one in awhile and after a glowing recommendation from our waiter, Neil chose the porkchop.  He was pleased.

My burger came with grilled onions and cheddar cheese on a grill toasted ciabatta roll, fried pickles, and Parmesan garlic fries. I skipped the pickles (not a fan) and the fries (because I couldn’t finish the burger).  It was so delicious and cheesy. I could have finished it, but I knew there was dessert coming and I had to save room!

Our desserts were a sampling of their signature dessert bites and I am going to try my best to remember them. I will probably mangle their actual names, but I can definitely list the flavors. All of the bites had a bottom cake layer which I was skeptical about since I am not a huge cake person.

Clockwise from top: chocolate peanut butter caramel crunch, strawberry basil, mango coconut, and blackberry heaven cake (I added heaven cake, but I distinctly remember him saying blackberry and then thinking ‘”there’s a raspberry on top”).

My favorite was the blackberry cake, but they were all really good. I was unreasonably excited about the strawberry basil one because you all know I am obsessed with basil in all its forms, but I mainly just tasted strawberry.

We had a great time and I was able to see Sara who was getting there just as we finished up. Thanks Sara for the picture!  I heard from others that the other two main course options were also really good, so we may make this a place to head to dinner again in the future!

      Eating out is definitely expensive that’s why we tend to hit up places that are “out” but are more affordable. Thanks about my hair!

      Same here. I like to mix it up but also we tend to save restaurants for celebrating or just random since the meals can be kind of heavy (hence the burger the size of my head). Thanks for reading Katalina!

    The food looks so delicious there! I like cooking at home during the week and eating out on the weekends hehe 🙂 and I’m ALL ABOUT saving room for dessert. Thanks for the review! We don’t have one here, but if and when I’m in Chicago….

      Even if I am super full from dinner, somehow there is always room for dessert!
