Tosa’s New Buckatabon Supper Club Is Offering Curbside Prime Rib

This restaurant was barely open when the pandemic hit.

Frank & Larry’s Buckatabon Supper Club (7700 Harwood Ave.) barely had a chance to open before the pandemic hit and restaurant dining rooms were forced to close. But last weekend (April 17-19), the Tosa restaurant – operated by Lowlands Group and a sibling to Cafés Benelux, Centraal and Hollander, all of which are currently closed – had a grand curbside opening.

It’s open weekends only – Friday-Sunday. The restaurant has a special curbside carryout menu of comfort food specialties such as Larry’s lasagna ($23 for 1, $39 for 2, $69 for 4); BBQ ribs with smoked baron cornbread, choice of baked potato or fries; a 12-ounce queen-cut prime rib served with Yorkshire pudding, horseradish-smoked sour cream, and choice of baked potato or steak fries ($29 for 1, $55 for 2, $95 for 4); and fish fry on Friday to Saturday nights. That fish is haddock fried in a Central Waters Mudpuppy Porter beer batter served with potato pancakes, apple sauce, tartar sauce, creamy lemongrass kombucha slaw, rye bread and charred lemon ($15 for 1, $23 for 2, $41 for 4).

New to the menu this week is fried cheese curds! They’re available on Saturday and Sunday only. They’re breaded and served with ranch dressing (half-pound $10.95, full pound $17.95). Loaded cheese curds are also available. They’re tossed in buffalo sauce, topped with shaved celery and chives, and served with a side of blue cheese dressing ($12.95).

Sunday brunch items include hot ham and rolls (half-pound $8.95-1 pound $15.95); prime rib and eggs with Hollander potatoes ($19.95); prime rib hash ($16.95).

The Buckatabon has a few to-go options: pickup from a carryout window, curbside delivery on State Street and in the nearby Tosa parking lot, and delivery via DoorDash).
