Our monthly regime of visiting locally owned and operated Omaha eateries began tonight at The French Bulldog. Kind of an upscale Deli, the owner cures his own meats and makes sausage and the like. We started the evening with a Charcuterie plates of butcher selected meats and cheeses. A nice Cote du Rhone to balance the dishes was chosen.
A large platter arrived with 3 samples of meat and 2 cheeses, honey and mustard. The selected meats included pork belly, a Soprasata and a Salami as well as a local Goat Cheese and a Camembert.
The main entree menu offered some interesting selections from sandwiches to Pork Pie (house favorite) to banger and mash (sausage and mashed potatoes. The prices were reasonable and the portions were plenty. Mat had the Pork Pie, Lori and Brenda had the Garlic Sausage and Mashed Potatoes and I had the Bulldog Deli sandwich. The service was prompt and friendly. The place was very small and packed. Reservations are a must as many folks came and went without a table. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the appetizers. All in all a great evening with a French bistro atmosphere. Check please? About $90 for the four of us and a bottle of wine.
