Dining out Paleo: Julius Bar & Grill

On November 29th, Julius Bar & Grill opened its doors on the Ceintuurbaan, and when a friend
recommended it to us, we couldn't wait to go ourselves.
Made reservations on a Saturday night, and when entering that evening, the hustle and bustle inside welcomed us.

We both agreed immediately that this was an excellent "guys place", although this doesn't mean it isn't a girls place. But you know what we mean. It also reminded us of a great restaurant in New York, called DBGB. Same look and feel, and when looking at the menu, a bit of the same concept as well, only less sausage :-)

Our table was in the back, where there were also 3 separate dining spaces, excellent for groups.
A real eye-catcher is the glass showcase with the meats aging.

The menu is an excellent variety for everyone's taste, that even vegetarians can choose from, and most of the items are paleo friendly.
The mains come with a baked crushed potato, but you can opt to leave that out (however, we actually don't mind the occasional white potato)

We choose the baba ganoush and sausage from the "bites" section and they were excellent! Accompanied by a nice of sparkling glass of Shiraz, this was a good start.

As mains, it was rib-eye and the hamburger, both with the potato and coleslaw, and again, cooked to perfection. The hamburger was medium cooked, as was the rib-eye. Delicious.
Trouble with dim-lit restaurants: too dark to take a picture and the flash makes any food look like crap, so you'll have to take our word for it.

And dessert; so NOT paleo, but we didn't care. Vanilla yogurt with salted caramel is probably the best thing that will happen to you EVER and is worth putting your paleo principles on-hold.
And the chocolate is excellent as well, making any chocolate lover happy.

To sum it up: we really like Julius. Why?
First of all because the products are chosen with care, like organic chicken, Angus beef and sausage from Louman to mention a few.
Second, because the menu provides great option to eat fully paleo, you can choose sides such as grilled veggies & salads.
And third is of course that everything tastes great and our bill wasn't too crazy either: 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts & 6 glasses of wine for 93,-. 
Only note for improvement was that the staff seemed a bit all over the place (but friendly nonetheless), but that could be the hiccups of a starting restaurant.

We'll be back.
