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!
