The Dubliner Launching New Wild Game Menu Tonight, Antelope, Bison Steak
As much as chefs may put their own unique -- and delicious -- spin on common food items, most menus across South Florida contain the same sorts of ingredients.

Sure the same cuts of steak, types of chicken, and array of fish can be incredibly diverse in terms of preparation, but at the end of the day, it's the same stuff you've been eating for decades, depending on your age.
To take guests down a different dining path, the Dubliner is releasing a new menu today with an exotic selection of wild game as well as more familiar options.
Starting tonight, the Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale Irish spots are offering up healthy carnivorous choices like Nilgai Antelope ($26) chop served with sauteed wild mushrooms and a light dijon cream and Bison Strip Steak ($24) grilled or blacked with lemon herb butter or au poivre ($26).
Executive chef Greg Schiff extensively researched the health benefits of the meats, both of which are free-range and grass-fed throughout their entire lives -- unlike the vast majority of commercial beef.
"Both the bison and the antelope are very low in fat," said Schiff. "Because they are free-range and grassfed, and there isn't as much of a demand, its more sustainable than beef. We've eliminated the old New York strips from the menu."
