I am a lover of good food and music. Peep my blog BooYaBass journey's through sounds and tastes.
Restaurant: Longman & Eagle
Our Northcoast crew recently went to Longman and Eagle over Labor Day weekend for a late breakfast/brunch meal before day two of the festival and to sum it up in one word is amazing. A couple friends were sipping some delicious whiskey cocktails when we arrived and I joined with a delicious ice cold beer from their great selection. Our group of seven shared a couple of plates of spiced brioche french toast with bacon pudding and peach compote to start! Is your mouth watering yet? What about sunny side duck egg hash with duck confit, Nicholas Farm spring onions, yukon gold potatoes with a black truffle vinaigrette? Okay now I know your mouth is watering and when I mention how delicious the Mac n Cheese with cherry tomato confit, arugula, morney sauce, Dunbarton blue cheese with crispy bread crumbs and basil was then you would be a fool not to be heading there right now. One of the best I have had. Some other unique dishes at our table included head on prawns with cheese grits, collard greens, a one hour egg and black pepper sauce and a ultra fresh market scramble with roasted peppers, arugula, mushrooms and feta served over a fresh croissant with mixed greens. This is just the breakfast menu foodies!! Can't wait to come back for lunch and dinner I saw some items on those menus that are must tries. Cant forget to mention how nice and informative our bearded, bandana wearing server was, great job sir :)

Restaurant: Lockdown Bar & Grill
Coming from out of town I always seek out the city's best burgers when i am in town. I must say that I have had really amazing burgers in Chicago. There were so many burger options that I wasn't sure what to get so I ended up decided on the Lockdown Warden their signature burger with bacon, leeks, garlic and shallots infused into the Merkts Cheddar stuffed burger. It was very delicious and because of their long list of unusual burgers including an Elvis burger topped with bacon, banana and peanut butter and even a kimchi burger. We were also there when they featured 25 cent wings that were very tasty and cheap. Oh, did I mention we got to watch a live Rage Against the Machine concert on one of their many large flatscreen TV's
