One Saturday morning, Supreet and I met up for brunch at Black's Bar and Kitchen, in Bethesda. Supreet's choice. She said that this restaurant has a phenomenal seafood buffet, and after confirming on their website as I drooled over the bottomless seafood brunch, I basically ran over to the restaurant. But, I was so disappointed when we found out that was only offered on Sundays....WHY?! Why would you do this to meeee?!
Yes, I get dramatic when "bottomless seafood" ends up being "here's the lunch menu." In any case, we decided to give Black's a go because the regular menu still looked amazing and offered a ton of seafood dishes.
Supreet ordered the Roasted Beet and Green Grape Salad with a grilled salmon filet on the side. So delicious! I mean look at that fantastic pillow of creamy goat cheese on top of a bed of frisee, arugula, raddichio and paprika spiced almonds, all tossed in a sherry-shallot vinaigrette.
I ordered the Grapefruit & Avocado Salad. This was so reminiscent of the sald I had when I was last in San Francisco - I just can't resist the flavors of grapefruit and avocado. Two of my faves! Thin slices of red onion in the salad were the perfect spicy counter to the sweet/sour of the grapefruit, and the creamy texture of the avocado slices. A grilled shrimp skewer over the salad, was the perfect pairing.
And, yes, they have martini specials all day Saturday, so we helped ourselves to an Extra Dirty Martini each. Not a bad Saturday brunch at all :)
PS - We're going back on a Sunday to get that bottomless seafood brunch!! If you're interested, check out the menu here.
