Eat at Mitch’s

December 16, 2011

I had a delicious lunch today at Hell’s Kitchen. I ordered the French Dip and got the Soup of the Day as my side. The soup of the day didn’t have a name it was just a soup they created with pork and a savory broth and some cumin added.  It was incredible and I almost wish I got a bowl instead of a cup. Yum.

While I was there I found my inspiration for today’s top ten list.

Top 10 Items You have to try at Hell’s Kitchen!

(or if we are being honest  – Mike’s Favorite Menu Items from Hell’s Kitchen)

10 – Caramel-Pecan Roll: A warm, melt-in-your-mouth 1/4 pound caramel cinnamon roll topped with roasted, salted pecans and a rich, homemade caramel sauce.

9 – Corned Beef Hash: House-cured, hand pulled corned beef brisket with sautéed banana fingerling potatoes, sweet onions, and crisp celery. Served with 2 organic eggs, toast & side of fresh fruit.

8 – Huevos Rancheros: A crisp flour tortilla with buttery hash browns, spicy black beans, soft-scrambled eggs and a 3-cheese topping, all baked to a golden brown. Topped with hand-chopped salsa and a dollop of sour cream.

7 – Bison Benedict or the Nearly Classic Benedict (I couldn’t decide.): Benedicts From the Benedictine Chefs at Hell’s Kitchen, our benedicts include one large poached organic egg, a side of freshly-made hashbrowns, and seasonal fruit.

6 – Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes: Three melt-in-your-mouth hotcakes made from freshly grated lemon zest and whole milk ricotta cheese. Served with fresh berries and pure maple syrup…but try your first bite without it!

5 – Mahnomin Porridge: We start with native-harvested, hand-parched wild rice from the Leech Lake Band of Ojibway, then simmer it with heavy cream, roasted hazelnuts, dried blueberries, sweetened cranberries and pure maple syrup to create this wildly popular dish

4 – BBQ Bison Bacon Burger: Layered with 2 slices of crisp, thick, applewood-cured bacon and served with homemade BBQ sauce.

3 – French Dip (My recent lunch may have influenced this choice.): Mounds of shaved, slow-roasted prime rib beef on a grilled ciabatta bun with a roasted garlic au jus.

2 – BBQ Pork Nachos (This one wasn’t in the cookbook, but I may need to try to recreate it.): Pulled pork BBQ with pickles & coleslaw on freshly made corn nacho chips.

1 – Wicked Dessert. Only recently have I figured out I need to leave room for dessert because what they have is incredible. things like  Cupcake of the Day, Habanero-Mango ice cream, and the Nefarious Mystery Dessert.

These are in no particular order because it was hard enough just to limit myself to ten items. There is nothing on the menu that I don’t like at least a little. And there are way more than ten things on the menu that I like a lot.

    of course, now that you know how to make all of these things you never have to go back to Hell’s Kitchen again, right?

      It doesn take several days to make some of the recipes so to be able to get them delivered to the table in 30 minutes has it’s advantages. Plus they have specials!
