This post comes originally from the blog at NewtonBOKX.com, the site of our client, BOKX 109 American Prime. We manage their website and write their blog. I recently had the pleasure of eating there, and this was my experience. Try to read with your taste buds.
For this week’s post, it’s time to come out from behind the curtain. This may come as a shock to some readers, but I am not, in fact, an anthropomorphic restaurant imbued with the power to write weekly blog posts, but rather a human writer named Zach from (don’t hold this against me) New Jersey. And recently I had my first BOKX experience, and let me tell you, it’s even better than I’ve already been telling you it is.
My three friends and I managed to recall everything we ate and drank despite the weeklong blissful food coma that ensued. At the risk of gushing about everything, I’m going to stick to the highlight reel.
First came the drinks. Two of us unashamedly ordered the Graceful Lady, a delightful mix of SKYY Passion Fruit and cranberry with the unexpected and welcome addition of rosemary. Total hit. The argument at the end of the night (fueled by the drinks we were arguing about) was whether we enjoyed that more than the Double Pear, a wonderfully tart blend of Double Cross vodka, pear juice, and whatever it is that makes it wonderfully tart. Though I had to cast a vote for my Jim Beam Manhattan. It’s my favorite cocktail and I’ve had my fair share of them, but this one belongs at the top of the list.
For entrees, the scallops were oh-my-good. We all got to try a little bite because, even though we were all sharing, their orderer tried them first and then guarded them carefully, rationing pieces like they were World War 2 steel. My order, the hanger steak Decon 3 got the next-most attention, so I had to watch for prying forks. And of course we ordered the duck fat fries and short rib mac and cheese, because, come on.
I’d like to talk about cheesecake and red velvet cupcakes, but I have to go clean the drool off my keyboard. Seconds please?
