Bobby Van’s has five restaurants in the city but only three of them were participating in Restaurant Week. My friend and I decided to eat at their branch in Park Avenue because they call it “the original” so why not eat at the original for the first time, right? When we got there, we felt so out of place. It’s exactly the type of restaurant that your business partners there for a meeting or after work. I would definitely take my dad here but I probably won’t go back with a friend. My friend and I felt like we were the youngest in the room, which was extremely awkward but oh well. The food was amaaaaazing! I could still taste it in my mouth!
For starters, we got the Baked Clams Oreganata and it was hard not to eat everything at once. I’m very picky when it comes to clams because I don’t like it when I taste the “sea” when I eat it. I know it sounds weird but you know when you eat something and you taste so many different things that you forget what it is you’re eating in the first place? Yeah. That. When I eat a clam, I want to taste the clam and not the “sea” and this one definitely did not disappoint. Next up was my Pork Chop with Apple and Mango Chutney while my friend got the Petit Filet Mignon. The main course came with creamed spinach and mashed potatoes that go well with the meats. Everything was just so delicious that I barely had room for dessert! The Chocolate Mousse Cake was so rich and creamy that if you are a fan of things like that, you will enjoy it for sure. I, on the other hand, am not really a fan of anything too creamy so I passed halfway.
Bobby Van’s is definitely a treat for all you steak lovers out there like me so do try to check it out! Restaurant Week is still on going so go eat out at these restaurants as much as you can! Who doesn’t want a good meal at a low price anyway?
P.S. This is me and my friend at the bathroom. Lol their bathroom is so nice!
