Bradley's Braised Short Rib

Tastemaker
By Lynda Wheatley | Feb. 10, 2018

Bradley’s Pub and Grill might be the best-kept secret Up North right now. The cozy eatery is easy to forget this time of year, nestled as it is among the frozen fairways of the hibernating Interlochen Golf Course, but make no mistake: Under the crafty talents of new head chef Mike Fradette, this place is red hot with inspired entrees, salads (divine: roasted red and yellow beets and spring mix dusted with goat cheese and layered with clementine slices, toasted pine nuts, and a citrus vinegar), and even soups (Guinness Chocolate Chipotle Chili, anyone?) Hot on our list: Chef Mike’s braised short rib — 8 ounces of outrageously tender short ribs served with roasted butternut squash purée, crispy Brussels leaves and pancetta, charred onion, sweet and spicy pumpkin seeds, and a natural jus. $23 of heaven for a hearty meal-lovin man or lady. 10586 US-31, Interlochen. (231) 275-6401, interlochengolf.com/bradleys
