Bash Is a Foodie, Craft-Beer Mecca in West Broward
Set in a suburban shopping center in Sunrise, Bash American Bistro looks just like any other café from the outside.

But behind the beige exterior lies an eclectic, cheerful atmosphere.
A chalkboard wall with draft beer specials spelled out in bright colors highlights the bar, and decorative beer taps sit right in front of the door. Exposed Edison bulbs hang from the ceiling. Dark wood wainscoting highlights the array of local art adorning the walls, a multifarious collection, ranging from local wildlife photography to pop-art images of the Beatles. The effect is the same as walking into someone's home: intimate, warm, and totally unpretentious.
Just over a year ago, the well-known restaurant, beloved by in-the-know locals, relocated from its former site on Oakland Park Boulevard to its new digs near Nob Hill Road. Owned by mom-and-pop team Kimberly Lynn and Shannon Weiberg, the restaurant serves classic American comfort food with a modern twist.
Dale's "Fall Off the Bone" beef short rib, one of the most popular dishes on the menu, is braised in birch beer for hours, then grilled and brushed with a house-made barbecue sauce.
Another favorite, black truffle beggar's purses, combine black truffle and aged cheeses inside a thin pocket of pasta with a light Champagne cream sauce and a drizzle of balsamic.
