pretty pricey for the food you get, but overall nice place.
Great atmosphere, good service, but only average food. Definitely not worth the price; I've been here twice and would have rather been to Sole or Nick and Nat's both times
TBK wins for its atmosphere and decor moreso than it's food. The later is is good , but far from great, and doesn't really stand out vs. Nick and Nat's / Janet Lynn's / Sole.
Everyone has to try the Brie Stuffed Supreme Chicken. Its one of my favourite dishes of all time. Do it!
i'm addicted to this place. I had the rigatoni with chorizo. It has fabulous flavour and heat!
they have a summer city lunch special menu which includes app, entree and dessert for $17. You can choose from 1 of 2 apps, 1 of 3 entrees and the dessert is a homemade power bar.The pickerel was delicious and the cold roasted red pepper soup was awesome. The power bar does not suit the rest of the meal and I would have much preferred fresh fruit or a nice piece of seasonal pie. They also have a special drink menu and I LOVED my bacon gin caesar complete with two olives!
I've had great experiences at TBK, and some okay experiences. The restaurant keeps me coming back and I think it's because of the overall experience of the restaurant. The ambiance is fantatastic - it's a great combination of high quality finishes and materials, great lighting, and some distinct decorative touches that really makes every visit to TBK special. The menu is shorter than what I would like, but most of the dishes I've tried are great.
I took my best friend to Bauer Kitchen on a Saturday night for an after dinner drink. While the bar was not nearly as busy as I expected, there were a few couples and groups of friends scattered throughout. We sat in the bar section at a high-top table which gave us a nice view of the elegant bar and television screens playing the hockey games. We both admired the beer tap which extends the bar almost like antlers. We each enjoyed a glass of wine; the white my friend had was recommended by the bartender as the most popular choice by customers and I tried an Andeluna Malbec which was deliciously light. We also gave into the appetizer menu and shared an order of sweet poatote fries, as well as a half-wheel of brie which came with crostini, figs, roasted pecans and apricots. What was nice about the brie plate is that we each got to make our own little pieces and building our brie atop the crostini was almost as enjoyable as it was to eat it. The sweet potatoe fries were thin and soft, but still had a delicate crunch to them. The accompanying mayo dip worked well with the fries.
I went to Bauer Kitchen on the second night that they were open. While there were a few kinks that needed to be worked out, it was a great experience. The food is wonderful and I have been back a number of times since for both lunch and dinner.
