Orlando Home & Leisure  releases their Best of Orlando issue in May.  In anticipation of its release, here is a mention of Bull & Bear from the blog of Rona Gindin, the magazine’s food editor…

Tomahawk steak presentation at Bull & Bear, inside Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Tomahawk steak presentation at Bull & Bear, inside Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Most Indulgent Steak in All of Orlando “Fat equals flavor,” dietitians dictate when explaining why fat-free versions of traditional desserts are unsatisfying. So imagine how sated you’ll feel after sharing the Tomahawk steak for two at Bull & Bear, since the 36-ounce hunk of beef is served with extra “flavor.”

Here’s how it works at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando’s signature restaurant. Once you order, a server will discretely place a candle that is in a stainless steel gravy boat on your table. When the  28-day dry-aged Four Diamond Harris Ranch steak arrives, your server will pick up that gravy boat with the candle in it and pour some of the “wax” onto your meat

As it turns out, the Bull & Bear candle is made of beef fat, seasoned with the mix that chefs sprinkle onto steaks in the kitchen. As it melts, a “gravy,” let’s call it, accumulates at the bottom of the gravy boat. And it’s that luscious liquid that tops your Tomahawk. This subtle surprise enhances the Tomahawk significantly — not that this expertly aged hunka flesh needs improvement.

TONIGHT!

Renown Pianist Krzysztof Srebrakowski

Krystof

Artistically expressive performances blended with dynamic technical dexterity, reflects the musical journey of composer and pianist Krzysztof Srebrakowski.  At the age of five Krzysztof, was “discovered” as a child prodigy when he was heard playing the organ at his local church; by the age of eleven Krzysztof composed his first musical piece, “Prelude in f# Minor”.  The rest is history. Krzysztof Srebrakowski was born in Zary, a small town located in the Western part of Poland near the German border.  During his childhood Krzysztof was schooled in the traditions of great masters like Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Ravel, and many others.  Most notably, Krzysztof was influenced by magical essence, and pure beauty of Baroque music. Raised in the city of Zary ,where George Philipp Telemann( 1681- 1767) was a kapelmeister, Krzysztof was schooled in the masterpieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frideric Handel, Domenico Scarlatti and many other composers of the 18th Century. As a result these musical Influences can be heard in Krystof’s performances to this day.  Learn more about our featured performer at his website:  www.krystofonline.com
