BlackHawk Hotel Resturant Review

Hello Bloggers,

This week has literally gone by in a FLASH and it is only Wednesday!

This past weekend Joe and I had a date night and tried out the new Blackhawk Hotel and Restaurant.. This is a brand new hotel that has been restored in past year. It is absolutely gorgeous.
The restaurant is called the Bix Bistro, here is a sampling of the menu and some pictures.
These are the items we had the night we ate there:

Braised Pork shoulder

Caramelized onions and braised collards

Ambrosia” Salad

Baby lettuce, oranges, grapefruit, toasted coconut with pineapple-citrus vinaigrette
This is a new spin on the classic southern salad of chopped citrus, pineapple and coconut
Meat and Potatoes

12 oz. NY strip, white cheddar potato terrine, green beans & baby carrots veal jus
The phrase “meat and potatoes” has been used to describe the bland and monotonous nature of the American diet. We will let you be the judge.

Pan Seared Filet of Grouper

With a ragout of mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes and green beans
The vegetable ragout, similar to the Maryland succotash, is a light accompaniment to the delicate trout

We thought the food was pretty good overall. They have only been open for a few weeks, so we took that into account for the service being a little slow.

 This is the beautiful Gold Room- my good friend Keli is having her reception here in the fall and I cannot wait. We walked through it on Saturday and I can see it all coming together!
These are the hotel rooms- aren't they swanky?????? I sure think so!

Well this is a taste of downtown Davenport, Iowa!!!

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!
