Restaurant Review -BROOKS PHARM2FORK
Brooks Pharm2Fork, a New American restaurant, recently opened on the Collierville Town Square. During its first full week, I HAD to visit twice. I simply could not decide on which dishes to try on my 1st visit. So, like a true foodie, I went back 3 days later.
The 1st entrée we tried was the “Old School Salmon Patties” these are made from fresh salmon that is baked on site. Being from the South, salmon patties are traditionally made from canned salmon then fried. I had eaten these salmon patties before at The Farmer in Memphis and they certainly did not disappoint. Although they were baked, they still had a very firm texture and held together well. They were very delicious and being baked allayed any potential guilt. The “Old School Salmon Patties” were accompanied with Mac+cheese, braised greens, and Creole remoulade. I asked for my Creole remoulade to be served on the side because some remoulades are too mayonnaisey. After sampling it here, it worked really well and next time I’ll get it atop the patties. Both of the sides were hearty and made the entrée very well rounded and delicious.
The 2nd entrée we tried was the “Good Ol’ Burger” I cannot think of a more appropriate name for this burger. This was THE best burger I’ve had in this area. It was made from a 6-oz Marmilu Farms beef patty served with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion and red peppers atop a grilled bun with a side of French fries. The burger itself was seasoned perfectly and the toppings were fresh. Now the fries, the French fries were exceptional. They had a very unique flavor without being too salty. Perfect.
Our 3rd entrée was the “Pan Seared Lake’s Catfish” a farm-raised catfish filet accompanied with Mississippi jambalaya risotto, fresh green beans, and a smoked tomato broth. I was very excited to try this creative catfish preparation. This dish was very tasty and very well balanced. The catfish was cooked just the way I like it, firm in the center with slightly blackened edges. The “Mississippi Jambalya Risotto” was very tasty and the fresh green beans were seasoned well and crisp.
We rounded our meal out with a pleasant dessert. The “Flourless Chocolate Torte with a Raspberry Coulis and fresh Whipped Cream. While that name is quite a mouthful, it pales in comparison to the mouthful of chocolate decadence that is this dessert. My wife and I shared this chocolate treat and as we got down to the last bite(s), I knew from the look that she gave me, it was time to put my fork down ☹. This torte was very rich and delightful, next time we’ll get two!
We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Brooks Pharm2Fork. The service was very fast and everyone from the hostess to our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. Once we were seated, the owner “Mac” came and introduced himself to us. Mac also came by as we were finishing up and asked us about our meal and informed us of their upcoming lunch hours. I’m looking forward trying out the lunch menu as well.
Brooks Pharm2Fork is located at 120 Mulberry Street, Collierville TN 901-853-7511
