Yesterday after my shoot, Phoenix surprised me with a day date to our favorite restaurant, Bak’n. Located on Main Street in Carnegie, this restaurant boasts and extensive menu centered around bacon. It’s always nostalgic eating there because it’s where we had our first date! I usually get the Frittata and he usually gets the 1 pound BLT sandwich but this time we switched it up. He got a chicken sandwich and I got the BLT on a plate with out a bun. So much yum! The bacon is perfectly thick and impeccably cooked to a medium yet crisp consistency. They top it with fresh arugula, thick and juicy beefsteak tomato slices, and a house dressing. I’m not sure what kind of bun it typically comes on but it’s so good without a bun.
The setting is really cool and has a modern industrial vibe with lots of wood and metal mixed for the decor. We have been in there a number of times and it ranges from packed to pretty dead depending on the time of day. Service was very good and quite prompt. Parking is rough since it’s mostly on street parking but the GetGo across the street has quite a few spots and I asked if we could use it to go across the street to eat and they said it was no problem. Besides the nostalgia I have associated with this resturant it really is a hidden gemstone in Carnegie that you all will have to go check out for yourselves some time.
