Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill: Celebrating Seven Years Of Satisfying Customers
Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is family-owned and has been operated by Tom and Karen Barbarie since June 2012. Their hands-on attention to detail brings area diners the finest in steak and seafood.
Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is not a corporate steakhouse. At any given time, customers can find an owner present overseeing every aspect of the business, from the 30-day dry-aging process of the meat, in house, to giving a welcoming handshake as customers walk in the door. With its extensive lunch, brunch, and dinner menu, as well as a pub menu and daily specials, Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill is priced to suit any budget and satisfy any appetite.
Couples, families, business-people, and travelers find their way to Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill, where customer satisfaction has been the owners’ goal since opening their doors. Local diners know they can pop in after a movie and grab a light bite, such as sliders or a sandwich from the pub menu.
Ms Barbarie says Sunday “Brunchers” come for the best brunch in town, from the food to the service to the complimentary cocktails.
The sophisticated ambiance is welcoming the minute customers walk in the door. From the beautiful “green” horseshoe bar to the polished booths, glass-enclosed wine rack, and adjacent meat locker with soft lighting, the vibe and energy make for a comfortable, stylish atmosphere.
Beyond the dining room is The Board Room, available for any special occasion, including rehearsal dinners, corporate functions, showers, weddings, graduations, and holiday parties. The Board Room accommodates up to 65 guests, with menus customized and personalized for each occasion.
The second private space that is available year-round for reservations is the enclosed outdoor dining area. It seats up to 40 people and can be heated or cooled depending on the season.
Once the guests are seated, they are in the care of well-trained servers. It is a personalized level of service, the owners say, that sets Barbarie’s Black Angus apart from other restaurants, noting, “An incredible experience is priority number one.”
Black Angus Grill also offers “Angus Anywhere” delivery service, ideal for office business and party events; minimum $100 order for delivery/set up.
A Sample Of The Menu
Appetizers: More than a dozen appetizers, including Thai fried calamari with scallions, cilantro, cherry peppers, and sweet chili aioli; shrimp spring rolls with carrots, scallions, ginger, cabbage, seaweed salad, Asian slaw, wasabi mayo, and soy sauce; the Black Angus chili with tortilla chips; or the applewood smoked bacon that is grilled and served with Barbarie’s Black Angus steak sauce.
Sandwiches and Burgers: More than 20 wraps, sandwiches, and burgers to choose from. Try the filet on toast with grilled tenderloin medallions, melted mozzarella cheese, farm fresh baby greens, and house vinaigrette or the classic Angus 9-ounce cheeseburger with the works: slow-cooked onions, chipotle mayo, bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
Salads: The signature house salad with craisins, candied pecans, Gorgonzola cheese, and house vinaigrette topping a bed of mixed greens is a winner. Add seafood, chicken, or steak options.
House Cut: Enjoy a house cut of dry-aged Angus beef, from the 8-ounce filet mignon with Black Angus Grill’s own house-smoked bacon, Cipollini onions, and mushrooms to the 20-ounce or 40-ounce porterhouse to the 45-ounce tomahawk for two.
Entrees: Diners find options like the braised beef short ribs, the Black Angus filet of chicken, the grilled rack of lamb, and assorted handmade pasta dishes.
