Ah, the power of suggestion. Recently, Bourbon Steak announced via Twitter that they were serving Nutella ice cream - I think no less than 4 people immediately responded talking about how amazing that sounded, haha. Luckily, I didn't have to wait too long to go- N and I were able to find a non-rainy day to meet up and try it out one night after work.
The restaurant is located inside the Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown- swanky, indeed. We sat out on the patio of the restaurant- lots of tables and couches, fire pits and heating lamps- v. nice! We received some complimentary spiced nuts to munch on while we perused the menu.
Make sure to ask for the dining room dessert menu- that's where all the fun stuff is, haha! In addition to it not raining on us, we were pretty lucky that the day we were going = the day they were introducing a new dessert, called Chocolate Three Ways (below):
So many great desserts on the full menu!
I ordered a Moscow Mule to drink- Ketel One, fresh lime, and ginger beer- YUM! It was super refreshing and delicious. They have a LOT of cocktails and drinks to choose from- check out the menu here.
Chocolate Three Ways
The Chocolate Three Ways dessert is literally like a piece of art- so pretty!! From the left, it's the Ovaltine-soaked Devil's food cake, then the Chocolate custard with red velvet cake crumbles, and finally the Chocolate brownie with rosemary syrup, tuiles, and ice cream on top. N and I enjoyed all of the dishes, but we agreed that the Ovaltine-soaked Devil's food cake was the best- rich, creamy, some texture from the chocolate shavings, so so good! So happy we got to try this on its "debut"!
And finally, the main reason we came here- the Nutella ice cream!! Cute presentation, little quenelles of chocolate hazelnut goodness. We agreed though that we were expecting more of a mixed-in Nutella (like fudge ripple ice cream) instead of a blended Nutella ice cream...but obviously, we weren't complaining since it tasted so good!
I'm not going to lie and say that this place is cheap- Hello, it's a well-established steakhouse in the Four Seasons Georgetown, haha. But it's got a great patio area, fantastic and friendly service, and really creative desserts. The rest of the menu sounded fantastic too- their duck fat fries and lobster corn dogs are definitely on my radar for my next visit!
