Spiced up by the saucy skills of chef Howie ?Bulldog? Kleinberg, who was on Top Chef Miami, Bulldog Barbecue's menu features no-frills, North Carolina?style barbecue. Hearty options?such as the popular beef brisket ($18), shrimp and grits ($18), and baby back ribs ($15?$23), all of which come with Carolina slaw, cornbread, and your choice of side?satisfy stomachs with unmatched sass. Non-carnivores can focus on the selection of fresh salads or a smoked portobello burger with caramelized onions and balsamic mayo ($9). Unlike most restaurants 500 miles beneath the earth's surface, Bulldog Barbecue provides drink items, allowing guests to fight off dehydration with made-to-order lemonade ($2); a root-beer float ($4); or a choice of red wines, white wines, or bubblies.
