Black Bear Restaurant & Tavern

My parents and I took a ride to check out the Black Bear Restaurant & Tavern 34 Old Route 22 Wingdale, NY.

I love their logo and Joe the owner is really cool. He took great care of us.

Joe took a couple of minutes to chat with me about his restaurant



I started off the night sharing the Special Black Bear Bean Salad -fresh organic locally grown string beans, onions, tomatoes, shrimp, & applewood bacon marinated in extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar

My mom’s appetizer was fresh grilled figs stuffed with sweet gorganzola cheese & topped with drizzled balsamic vinegar. This was a totally new taste for me.

My Dad chose the wild Mushroom Risotto -creamy risotto with wild mushroom, shaved parmesean. I couldn’t wait to taste it because love watching Chef Gordon Ramsay scream about bad risotto on TV. Was it up to the Ramsay standard?

And for me…Applewood Smoked Bacon -thick strips grilled to perfection & served with housemade Kansas City style BBQsauce for dipping – BACON!

For the Entree round, Mom chose the¬†Maryland Crab Cake -seared jumbo crab with a tangy citrus aioli, with a substituted ceasar salad. To be honest, I didn’t think I would like it.

Dad is the big meat eater, he chose the Black Bear Angus NY Strip Steak with a loaded baked potato (cheddar and BACON) and house veggie – tonight asparagus -done to dads perfection.

This was my “BAM GOOD” pick of the evening!

I went with the Black Bear Burger (cub sized) with applewood smoked BACON, cheddar, let, tom, & grilled onions on a Kaiser roll.

Last, but certainly not least, it was time for dessert. There were sooo many choices.

Dad is a huge chocolate fan so he took on the Black bear Brownie.

I went with the good ole chocolate mousse.

My beautiful new friend Meaghan -she knew everything about the menu, took great care of us and had a great smile!

All in all, I had a great foodie visit to the Black Bear Restaurant. I definitely recommend it for the whole family.
