Brü Grill & Market Now Open in Lake Forest
Scott Mindeaux, Editor
I was driving down El Toro Road when I noticed the indoor and outdoor lighting was on. After making a quick turn into The Orchard at El Toro and Rockfield, the door was open, but they were hosting a private party. I snapped a few pictures, they are dark.
I grabbed a copy of their menu and I’ll try and make it there tomorrow. From the looks of their menu a few items caught my eye!
Seasonal selection of local artisanal cured meats with house-cured olives, brick oven flatbread and spicy apple chutney
Oskar Blues™ Beer Can Roasted Cornish Game Hen
Served with roasted heirloom potatoes and root vegetables
Frilled Duroc Pork Porterhouse
Cut thick, and served with sweet potatoes and apple pecan chutney
They have a nice selection of locally crafted Brü’s from Cismontane, Taps, Hangar 24 and others. Add to that a nice list of wines (Crü’s) from local wineries. The prices are reasonable and carry a $10 corkage fee.
The goal of Brü is a Farm-to-Table concept with the menu changing ever so often based on availability of fresh ingredients. They have a manageable sized menu and the price ranged from $7.00 to $15.00 for Starters and Soups, while Sandwiches, Flatbreads, Pastas and entrees range from $11.00 to $22.00.
A review will follow in the next few days. Meanwhile don’t forget to stop by!
