Had dinner tonight at Bonfire..if you like red meat, you gotta sit at the bar..overlooking the open kitchen..big hunks of prime rib..bloody rare..and finished to order (I'd have ordered except for JMB's soso review), racks of lamb..being assembled in triple chops, steaks, triple pork chops, veal chops...all the meat is just beautiful. We started with a raw tuna taco..awesome..NY sirloin..med rare..garlic smashed potato and bok choy. The steak came..overdone and cold..we told the waitress/bartender..it was immediately taken away and replaced by a steak that was done perfectly. Restaurants can make mistakes. To me, part of what makes a good restaurant is how quickly they can fix a mistake..Bonfire passed that test with flying colors.
The dining room is pretty...but eating at the bar and overlooking the kitchen was a big part of the very enjoyably experience.
Galleygirl..not sure if this place is for you...:)
