Don’t let the name fool you: Bourbon and Beef is much more than an American steak house. With a Latin edge and hip vibe, this new Rockridge restaurant is both fun and foodie friendly. We love chef Munther Massarweh’s signature dishes: lush steak-stuffed chile relleno, a sizzling rib eye with shishito peppers, and a seafood paella with a blast of meaty chorizo. The cocktail list is inspired, and the wine list dotted with Chilean and Argentinean options. Lunch is pricey, but where else can you get short rib tacos and a cheeseburger topped with duck bacon? The dining room is an odd mix of tacky and trendy, but it all seems of a piece after an inky glass of Malbec. Lunch Mon.–Fri., dinner daily, brunch Sat.–Sun.
