I’ve been really excited for the opening of the The Bryant which is the latest restaurant in the Poll Restaurants dynasty.
Local readers may be aware that the same owners of Bryant & Cooper (where we had dinner for my son’s birthday) as well as owners of Toku (which I last had around my birthday), Cipollini, Major’s, Bar Frites, and Hendricks Tavern, were planning to open The Bryant this fall — and it finally opened a week or so ago!
The hype over the opening has been SERIOUS. Usually, you don’t like to try a new restaurant until it’s been around for a while but this restaurant group doesn’t mess around which means it’s ready to roll when the doors open.
Rumor already had it that the spinach and artichoke dip was a must. We ordered it as soon as we sat down. Delicious, but terrible picture which I didn’t realize until I got home.
There were SO MANY excellent menu choices for me (me meaning, a meatless eater) that I wasn’t quite sure which direction to go in with my meal! I was choosing between pizzas, salads (really wasn’t in the mood for salad), zucchini noodles, sushi, and the house made veggie burger.
I ultimately went with the veggie burger which doesn’t look like anything amazing in the photo but it was very good. It had great taste and a good bite with crunch to the outside rather than mush.
With molten chocolate cake on the menu, even the warm brownie didn’t tempt me.
I only wish that molten chocolate cakes were bigger! The waiter had apologized that dessert took a long time (which I didn’t think it did but he felt bad anyway which was nice) but he explained it was because the molten cakes are made fresh to order. The ooze of chocolate was everything you could ask for in a molten cake.
I will definitely be back to The Bryant soon to try everything else on the menu! One thing you need to know, make a reservation in advance. If you expect a day of reservation, think again!
That’s basically all I’ve got for today, aside from this snapchat picture. I haven’t a true clue or need for snapchat but sometimes if I remember, I check the filters for some fun.

That veggie burger looks delicious! I like veggies burgers with a good crunch to the outside.
It was a great veggie burger, I really liked it!
Oh my goodness this place sounds amazing, and I will definitely need to check it out!
Best thing I ate over the weekend was a pasta dish I made out of Banza chickpea pasta, tons of veggies, arugula, mushrooms, Rao’s tomato sauce, and goat cheese. SO SATISFYING!
It’s definitely worth the visit – you won’t be disappointed!
