Hangry Bison Winter Garden

After more than a year’s hold off, a 2nd outpost of Hangry Bison, the common Winter Park Village cafe, has eventually opened, bringing its award-profitable burgers and creative cocktails to downtown Winter season Backyard garden.

Set in a recently produced building fronting Plant Avenue, it’s a even larger restaurant than the primary, with a lot more outdoor seating and a substantial, expansive area indoors with a massive bar the principal aim. And even the indoor eating area has an al fresco vibe thanks to garage-doorway partitions that open the space up. (It is just one of the new realities that air-flow is a issue in restaurant structure.)

The menu presents the very same burger-centric menu that has made the Wintertime Park place so preferred. My companion and I begun with an appetizer of Jangry Jalapeños, which highlighted spicy-incredibly hot peppers stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in pepperoni and chargrilled to give them a bit of a crust and melt the cheese. The jalapeños were being spicy on their own but the pepperoni added an excess kick.

There are a range of burgers detailed below the “House Hanghelds” heading but you’re also invited to personalize your burger employing a checklist on the again of the principal menu. My pal basically selected the Hangry Bison burger but customized it with unique cheeses and bun. But at the heart of it was the thick and juicy patty of bison meat, cooked to a ideal medium exceptional. Quick to see why it was voted Ideal Burger in our Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants.

I chose the Valdiano – numerous will recall that operator Joe Liguori made use of to have the Pizzeria Valdiano that is nearby in Wintertime Park Village. This sandwich replaces the bison burger with a patty of spicy Italian sausage topped with roasted pink peppers, onions, piquant arugula, thickly sliced tomato and provolone cheese. Type of tasted like a pizza on a brioche bun.

I paired my selection with fries, properly crisped and salted, although my mate selected the baked beans. The beans have been great but I preferred my fries.

HangryWG cocktail

I also couldn’t resist buying the signature Smoked Bison cocktail, made with Heaven’s Door straight bourbon, bitters, a splash of simple syrup and lux cherries, form of a newfangled outdated fashioned. But what really sets it apart is its presentation, served in a rocks glass with a significant format dice and an orange slice next to a pile of smoldering wooden chips less than a smoke-loaded glass cloche. (Here’s a video clip of the cocktail getting built, albeit with a unique bourbon.)
