So this new health/weightlifting oriented restaurant recently opened close to my gym, so tonight I decided to give it a whirl. I ordered the "Super Protein Plate" which was a mix of chicken breast, bison steak, tomatoes and onions in some light sauce. Anyway, I just wanted to say that the bison meat was pretty damn good. I had never had it before, but I imagined it would taste very "gamey" and tough, especially after reading the nutrition facts, which were very very solid (tons of protein and very little fat). Anyway, just wanted to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't taste quite as good as steak, but given the nutritional advantages, I'd say it was close enough to be considered a very worthy substitute.

Anybody else have good experiences with bison meat? They also have ostridge meat there, which will be my next experiment in a few days :) I have no idea what the nutritional facts on ostridge meat are though.

Bison meat is awesome. Much better for you than Beef.

Moose meat and venison are also excellent sources of lean protein.

Of course, it's probably cheaper to hunt it yourself; I think I paid $22/lb last time I bought venison from a specialty meat store.

Moose is best in burger format, BTW . . .

Bison, maybe that is why Indians were always such asskickers.:indian:

Uhh, no ****. I'm pretty sure there's not a restaurant like that in my entire state. If there was, maybe I'd eat out once in a while.

I'm with Callahan. Venison is very good for you, its very healthy, and high in protien. I hunt myself, so its about $80 to have an entire deer processed which yeilds about 150+ or - 30lbs of meat (if you shoot a nice sized deer). Or if you are skilled you can butcher it yourself, in which case its extremely cheap. Elk and caribu are also very good tasting, just to let you know.

Have you ever tried ostridge? I think I'm going to go there tomorrow and order it to try it out.

I shot an ostrich once, but the farmer kinda got pissed.

Ostrich depends on how they prepare it. I don't eat it out because if they over cook it...just hope they don't over cook it.

-Bison is great.
-Elk is great (wapiti)
-Moose is unbelievable
-Venison is great
-Antelope is great if it's been a wet year (dry years they taste like sage brush, probably because that's what they eat)
-Rabbit is iffy, sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it
-Rattlesnake is too hard to get enough meat to make it worthwhile

The prices are very decent. The dinner plates are like 7 or 8 dollars and the wraps are like 5. Some stuff is more expensive than other stuff, but within this range. They have all types of sandwiches, wraps, shakes and stuff there, but I usually stick to the protein dinner plates and some of the wraps.

7 or 8 dollars? A Big Mac extra value meal is 6 bucks downtown DC.

Well, there are two places actually.

The first is in Bay Ridge, and its on the corner of 71 street and 3rd Avenue. That's the one I usually go to because its sort of close to the gym I work out at.

For a change of scenery, I went to the other one one day. It's in Bensonhurst, on 18th Avenue between 86th street and Benson Avenue. Both places are pretty small, but oh so good. Hope that helps. The one in Bensonhurst is close to a train, I believe it's the W, but you'd have to check. The one in Bay Ridge is also close to a train, but I'm not sure which one anymore.
