Local restaurateur and chef Benard Tamburello returns to Bernie's on Main Street to revamp a lunch and dinner menu of upscale fare, such as steak, seafood, and pasta, served amid the exposed-brick walls of the casual, loft-style dining room. The epicurean alchemist explores landlocked fare with rib-eye steaks ($16.95–$23.95), available in a trio of sizes, which luxuriate in tarragon-reduction butter. Garlic-cream sauce slathers the sautéed catfish margueray, which gambols about platters with mushrooms and jumbo-lump crab meat ($13.95 for one piece; $17.95 for two pieces). At midday, lunching companions clink glasses or crab-cake burgers accented with New Orleans–style rémoulade sauce ($8.95) or go on fork fishing expeditions in a plate of pecan-encrusted salmon salad, whose asiago cheese peeks out of mixed greens dressed in balsamic-basil vinaigrette ($10.95).
Bernie’s on Main Street
Bernie’s on Main Street’s exposed brick and brushed concrete façade belies the cozy leather banquettes and flickering candles within, where founder and executive chef Bernard Tamburello helms a menu of Southern and Italian cuisine. Blackened catfish from nearby farms joins crab-stuffed steak, fried green tomatoes, and chicken pontchartrain, as well as pasta carbonara. Bernie’s also whips up kid-friendly bites of pizza and grilled cheese, served on special placemats emblazoned with word searches and mathematical proofs.
