This XL Lobster is Stuffed With Truffle Mac N Cheese Throughout

Barton G. The Restaurant subscribes to the bigger is better mantra, as they’re well known for wildly over the top presentations of their menu offerings. Imagine a decadent dessert fashioned into a massive bar of gold or even a mini castle serving up your order of rack of lamb and you’ll get the vibe at Barton G.

One of Barton G.’s latest creations, however, relies on the actual food itself for the eye popping presentation, as an extra large, 5-6 pound lobster is used as the vessel filled to the brim with decadent truffle mac n cheese — even the lobster’s substantial claws are full of the cheesy goodness.

Dubbed the XL Lobster Truffle Mac N Cheese, it’s actually a secret menu item that has to be ordered at least two business days in advance to allow for the restaurant to procure a lobster that large. But the wait may be worth it, as the dish is a whole Maine Lobster stuffed with cavatappi pasta, three cheese lobster bechamel sauce, and black truffles served inside the whole lobster shell.

If you’re looking to eat some photogenic mac n cheese with your pinky way up, check out Barton G. The Restaurant locations in Los Angeles and Miami.

Applebee’s Location Has ‘The Largest Margarita in Texas’

Proving that the age old adage “everything’s bigger in Texas” is true, an Applebee’s location in Irving, Texas has what it claims to be ‘The Largest Margarita in Texas’.

The Texas-sized portion certainly has a lot to boast about, as the massive drink is six feet high, four and a half feet wide and holds 65 gallons of margarita. Talk about drinking good in the neighborhood. It looks like this gargantuan marg is to help promote the fact that Applebee’s popular DOLLARITAS are back through the end of January in select Texas restaurants.

If you’re super thirsty or just want a fun selfie to post, check out The Largest Margarita in Texas at the Irving Applebee’s location on 1901 North Beltline Road.

Legendary Steakhouse Peter Luger To Open Location in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace

Simply put, Peter Luger is synonymous with iconic. The over 130-year old New York steakhouse first opened its doors in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, setting the tone for what a top notch steakhouse should be. From the thick cut bacon to the signature porterhouse cut served up sizzling with rendered beef fat and clarified butter, it’s clear that Peter Luger steakhouse is an institution.

Before West Coast denizens like me would have to book a trip to New York to satisfy our Peter Luger cravings. But in an exciting announcement, Peter Luger will be opening in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace by the end of 2022.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Peter Luger to Caesars Palace. It was critical for us to be able to bring to Las Vegas the same menu, the same ambiance and—most important—the same quality beef that we are known for in New York, and Caesars was aligned with that vision,” said Amy Rubenstein, the President of Peter Luger.

The iconic Beef Wellington is a time-honored dish. You’ve got a stunning seared filet mignon that’s covered in prosciutto and duxelles and wrapped in a puff pastry.

Chicago-based chef Michael Ponzio, also known as @chefponzio, wanted to do something a little different over at his restaurant Union League Club of Chicago to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

That’s where he whipped up this exclusive Surf & Turf Wellington.

Made with the classic ingredients of a traditional Beef Wellington, the new creation features the addition of a 3-oz Lobster Tail.


While the Wellington was a New Year’s Eve exclusive, Chef Ponzio told us he sold at least 60 that evening, and the dish will absolutely make a comeback in the near future.

Chipotle’s Plant-based Chorizo Just Debuted Nationwide

Chipotle has long been at the forefront of fast food vegan options and now they’re looking to boost their plant-based offerings with an all new Plant-Based Chorizo. The Plant-Based Chorizo at Chipotle is a tantalizing new vegan option that captures the deep, rich flavor of chorizo, without compromise.

This latest option is sure to bring nothing but the good stuff, which means using ingredients you can actually pronounce: Spanish smoked paprika, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, chipotle chili peppers, extra virgin olive oil, and tomatoes. The delicious result is a charred and grilled Chorizo with a bold, smokey flavor that just happens to be 100% vegan. Best of all, it contains 16 grams of plant-based protein in every serving.

Foodbeasts Elie and Oscar had a chance to try the Plant-Based Chorizo and were not disappointed, giving their nod of approval to just how booming its flavor was and how well it stayed true to the original.

To help celebrate the launch of Plant-Based Chorizo and to help get our new year started off right, Chipotle will be offering $0 delivery fees from January 3 to January 9. This should be an additional incentive to try for yourself Chipotle’s newest plant-based innovation that packs nothing but robust Chorizo flavor.
