Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!

Went to Bourbon steal last night for the $49 Sunday night BBQ!
The only suggestion I have is to go hungry!

We arrived @ the Princess at 6pm.
Entered into Bourbon Steak and it was relatively quiet.....the outdoor grill was already going and the chef and staff were busy setting up the buffet.

We were quickly seated at a table near the we could watch the chef's on a 111 degree day in full dress prepare our meal.
A DJ was in the corner playing top 40 a palatable decible that even my 73 yr old Mother didn't mind as she could hear herself talk.

The waiter came over w/ 3 of 'Michael Mina's famouse 'Cable Car' cocktails to wet our palate while we decided on our order.

You get a choice of a main entree ...everything else is either brought to the table or you can help your self from an unlimited supply from the buffet.
My Mother decided on the Salmon marinated in a Lime Cilantro Citronette... my SO and I each had the Flank Steak, marinated w/Charmoula Sauce (mine rare, his medium)

We then headed to the buffet table where the chefs had brought out: Heirloom Tomatoes w/Burrata Cheese and a Balsamic dressing, A Grilled Fresh Peach and Corn Salad, and Bibb Wedge with Avocado, Bacon and a Smokey Oregon Blue,Cheese.
A Summer English Pea Soup w/ a Dollop of Creme Fraiche, a Lobster Soup w/ a Mini Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and a Chilled Cucumber Soup,
Oysters and Clams, Shrimp along with Green Goddess Dressing, Cocktail Sauce, and Mignonette,
Mini Maine Lobster Rolls, Mini Kobe Beef burgers, and Mini Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ slaw and pickles....
We took a sampling of everything and went back for seconds on all the fresh shellfish.

We we arrived back at the table a skillet of cornbread was was pipng hot!

After nibbling on the buffet our main dishes arrived along w/ 3 side: Roasted Asparagus with A Tomato Citrus Vinaigrette, Sweet Corn, dusted w/ Cotija Cheese, Ancho Chili, Smokey Baked Bean w/ pancetta.. if that wasn't enought the waiter then brought over a trio of fries to taste....they were hot and crisp. One fried in duck fat, one in truffle oil and one in a cayenne pepper.....they were amazing!

Our Main dishes were amazing...the steaks were perfectly cooked and tender...I loved the cilantro flavor from the Charmoula Sauce. My Mother enjoyed the Salmon ...she could only eat half as she was stuffed from all the goodies off the buffet.

We were so satiated from our meal.... when the waiter then came over w/ 3 enourmous glasses of sassafras ice cream and a bottle of IBC Rootbeer and we enjoyed 3 of Michael Mina's signature Root Beer floats.......
I actually thought I was going to float away.......

The room had filled up by the time we left and the sun was beginning to set. We could really enjoy the beauty of the room...very modern, clean, open and welcoming.

This is an amazing Summer Special......
I will definiely be back!
