Buttermilk + Bourbon

160 Commonwealth Avenue | Boston, Massachusetts | Menu

Buttermilk + Bourbon is a Southern style tapas restaurant. The intent is to share your plate with your group, which is a great idea if you want to try a little bit of everything and don't mind sharing with your friends / family!

My friend and I ordered beignets as an app. This was the best decision we made. I highly recommend ordering these when you visit. The food comes to your table as soon as it's ready. These delicious items were warm and melted in your mouth. The powdered sugar goes everywhere, but that is to be expected. They also served it with butter {I'm not sure why} but I didn't use the butter.

I decided to try their "When Life Gives You Lemons" cocktail with raspberry vodka {you can choose your flavor from a variety} instead of my usual mimosa. I thought I would spice it up a bit. My friend and I ended up ordering our own plates instead of really sharing our plates - which is the opposite of what we're supposed to do. It took us a while to decide what we wanted.

After going back and forth and asking the waiter for his recommendations, we finally made a decision on what we wanted. My friend ordered the slow cooked brisket hash and I ordered the chicken + waffles. They do warn you that the chicken + waffles plate is bigger than the other plates, but I decided to go for it none-the-less.

My friend liked her plate. I had originally wanted to try the plate, but it has mushrooms that is already mixed in with the dish, so I decided against it since I dislike mushrooms. I enjoyed the chicken + waffles, however, I felt as thought the plate could have been smaller. It doesn't have to be as big as it is. The waffle is not so big that I needed four pieces of chicken with it - especially because the chicken pieces were a pretty good size.

Overall, I would recommend going to Buttermilk + Bourbon. The food is delicious and the interior is cute. I want to go back to not only get another round of beignets, but try another dish!
