I havn't really been impressed by any of the new restaurants that opened in the past couple of months, so going to the Butcher's Den was a breath of fresh air. As soon as we walked in, the staff were polite and seated us at a table. Apparently you can make reservations which isn't the case for the other restaurants in bidi3 as far as I know.
When we sat down we were given some cotton candy, no idea why but I loved it! Waaaay better than a bread basket in my opinion since it doesn't fill you up. The menu is pretty varied but not so huge that you can't make a decision, I hate restaurants that have a book for a menu, its makes it so hard to choose what to eat, and usually they chefs arn't capable of cooking all those dishes very well.
P.S. Whats fluffier? The cotton candy or my friend Abdullah's arm hair? Heheheh :p
For appetizers we ordered the Buratta and the Mac & Goat Cheese. The Buratta was yummy you could tell the ingredients were very fresh, it was huuuuuge though I couldn't eat more than half of it, so I suggest it if you want to share an appetizer. The Mac & Goat Cheese was really good, the goat cheese made regular mac and cheese (which I looooooove) even tastier!
For our mains we ordered the Wagyu Burger and the Argentina Beef Fillet, the burger melted in your mouth, it was soooo good, while I do believe that going to a steak house and ordering a burger is a bit of waste this one was totally worth it! Though I was a bit jealous when they brought Abdullah a tray of colored steak knives so he could choose one. (He went with the flourescent yellow btw)
We were of course not going to leave there without trying out the dessert. Our waitress let us know when we first placed our orders that some of the desserts take 20 minutes so we should pre-order them, granted we were so stuffed by the time dessert arrived that I would not have minded waiting 20 minutes for my food to digest. We ordered the Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Waffles with Ice Cream. The desserts were good and they did the job, but they were not wow. But it also might have been coz we were really full from the other food we had eaten.
Besides the food I would like to say that the look of the restaurant was really well done and thought out, I would have taken a picture but there were lots of people and I didn't want to freak anyone out. I definitely recommend Butcher's Den and will be going back there, especially since they take reservations so you don't have to be put on a waiting list and wait for a table etc.
