Phyllis Stein-Novack checks out Yello’Bar, the latest bar in the Graduate Hospital area.
There are all sorts of burgers on the bill of fare, but Mom is a purist. She likes hers medium-rare with no topping. It arrived as ordered with lettuce and tomato on the side. There had to be a half-pound of ground sirloin, so we cut it for easier eating. A pile of hot, grease-free curly fries came with her dinner.
I have loved Carolina pulled pork ever since I first tasted it many years ago. I ordered this Southern classic in a sandwich ($9), which had a slight taste of vinegar â€” the traditional ingredient. I thought it was skimpy compared to the burger. Still, it was tender and tasty and served on a fresh ciabatta roll. I also received a pile of the tasty curly fries.
Traditional Irish favorites such as shepherdâ€™s pie are on the menu. Edward loves my beef stew with red wine so he wanted to try Yelloâ€™Barâ€™s ($9), which was a jumbo pot pie covered in puff pastry. The stew itself was delicious, chock-full of carrots, celery, potatoes and beef. The stock was laced with Guinness and imparted a fine flavor. The crust remained crisp and not a bit soggy.
Two tips of the toque to Yelloâ€™Bar.
