Bill's Bar and Burger: Deceptive Diner Food!
Bill's Bar & Grill is a great breakfast spot at the Marriott Downtown, located in the heart of the Financial District. From 6am you can come and enjoy breakfast in the atmosphere of a typical American diner... starters, eggs, omelettes, off the griddle items and sides...
Enjoy the tunes of the 60's in this typical American diner. As I walked in I realized it's exactly like something you see in the movies. Dimmed lights, leather chesterfield sofas, low wooden tables, walls covered with photos from across the 52 States and half a dozen large screens broadcasting the latest news.
Black ceiling, glazed concrete tables; all with an array of condiments - ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, Tabasco and butter.
The plates could be described as fatty and fully loaded. I was honestly a bit disappointed... I expected breakfast at the Marriott to be better, maybe lighter or at least with the choice to choose between a heavier or lighter offering.
- Eggs, meat, sesame bun and vegetables. A breakfast burger with juicy meat, crunchy pickles, fried egg and fresh bun. Not something I'd eat everyday but interesting to try once.
- The pancakes are indeed fluffy but way too sweet - let's say enjoyably sweet the real American way. Butter and fat! I smiled as soon as I had the first bite and felt transported into one of Hollywood's movies. Yummy, sweet, lightly crisp edges and much more than simply sugar: a flavorful touch that's kind of addictive.
- Special K, bananas and milk; as simple as that.
I enjoyed the music and the vibes. It's not something I would recommend to eat daily but it's worth a try. I enjoyed starting my day taking mouth watering photos for my Instagram account.
