About Burgers and Bourbon
Thank you for checking out my food and restaurant blog! Burgers and Bourbon with BJ Coleman is dedicated to all the true “foodies” out there – those of you, who, like me, aren’t afraid to take dining risks, but also relish in the unparalleled joy of flavorful food, scrumptious recipes, and lavish meals.I realize that most of you may recognize me from my PR and television work in entertainment and fashion, but what many of you may not know is that, aside from pop culture, one of the things that inspires me the most is sheer GOOD FOOD! Whether it’s fried chicken and mashed potatoes, or foie gras and fig preserve, almost nothing pleases me more than a satiated palate.
With over fifteen years of experience working in the entertainment and fashion industries, I have collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, and have had the privilege and pleasure of dining at some of the best restaurants the world has to offer. From Miami to Milan, brunches to midnight rendezvous’, palaces to beach cabanas, I’ve dined almost everywhere and have eaten almost everything! And upon analyzing international recipes and flavor, service and décor, or location and ambiance multiple times over, I have been able to compare what is good, what is better, and what is BEST when it comes to eating good food in sundry settings from around the world. My food motto is: “If I like it, you’ll like it!”
When I finally joined Twitter in 2009, I began to post images from some of my personal and favorite restaurant meals and I received an enormous amount of feedback on the dish photos I posted. This dialogue with my twitter followers got me to think, “How can I showcase my unique dining experiences and share my opinions in a way that could benefit and educate other everyday foodies as well as the general public when it comes to dining choices?” And thus began Burgers and Bourbon!
So, WELCOME to my culinary world – an insider-foodie’s look at some of the best (and a few of the worst) recipes, restaurants, and dining experiences from around the globe, all based on my everyday diet! From Per Se to Popeye’s, you will join me on my regular dining experiences and I’ll provide you with feedback, photos, exclusive entertainment news, and a 5-point rating system in 5 different categories (See Ratings System), that will give you an overall sense of that particular restaurant and/or dish. This blog will cover the food ambit and there will be something for everybody, whether you are trying to find a suggestion for dinner tonight, looking for the new hot-spot or if you just want to rant and rave about your experiences too!
So sit back, relax, grab your favorite slice of pie, go through and enjoy! I look forward to hearing from you!
