66 A PRIME NIGHT B&B BUTCHERS BY SHELBY HODGE. PHOTOGRAPHY KRISTEN KILPATRICK. A fter the overwhelming success of his B&B Butchers & Restaurant in Houston, owner Ben Berg added a leaf to his dining table with a second location, this one in Fort Worth at The Shops at Clearfork. An opening-night party hosted by Berg, along with developer Sam Brous and his wife, Janis, introduced more than 200 of Forth Worth's finest to B&B's lauded USDA Prime menu. Signaling his intent to be a good neighbor as well as a purveyor of fine food, Berg selected patrons of Rivertree Academy as special guests for the bash. Per B&B tradition, the cocktail menu included such bites as to-die-for carpet bag- gers (filet mignon topped with fried oysters, thick-cut bacon, crumbled blue cheese, blue cheese sauce, and house-made hot sauce) and bacon beef Wellingtons. The dinner menu included Mr. G's classic Caesar salad and filet mignon served with mac and cheese, grilled asparagus, and creamed spinach. Topping off the feast was New York cheesecake. In a nod to Berg's 40th birthday, chef Tommy Elbashary sent out a rabbit-shaped candlelit cake (a nod to the restaurateur's childhood nickname, Benjamin Bunny) while a mariachi band serenaded.
