What the Doctor Ordered

Once in a while you need a light meal. The ink on the digital menu was barely dry last week when I tried the Gold Coast’s Doc B’s, a casual order-at-the-counter style restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. Doc B’s is what Corner Bakery wishes it could be. The concepts are similar, but Doc B’s has a sleek, trendy atmosphere and local meats from The Publican. The prices are right and in addition to their meats, many of their other menu items  are locally sourced. The food is fresh, flavorful and there are plenty of healthy options, if you’re into that.

I went for dinner and chose the Mr. Walton, a grilled chicken breast sandwich with arugula, monterey jack, roasted red pepper and the Chef’s balsamic, whatever that means. Doesn’t sound ground breaking, I know, but there was something about it that made it taste better than your average chicken sandwich. It tasted locally sourced, you know what I mean? Try and say locally sourced five times fast.


Halfway through the meal I remembered to take the picture. Backyard Burger on the left, almost gone chicken sandwich on the right, coleslaw in the middle.

The array of food among the table was all notable. The turkey chili, Backyard Burger, pepperoni pizza and Today’s #1 Tuna all left digested, plates licked clean.


Oops, I did it again.
