Executive chef/owner Jeff Rossman specializes in burgers made with Certified Humane Meyer’s Natural Angus beef, buns from Bread & Cie and Sadie Rose (choose your own bun: sesame, brioche, whole wheat, ciabatta or protein-style), housemade condiments and locally grown produce from Suzie’s Organic Farm and other area growers whenever possible. Rossman is also executive chef/owner of Terra American Bistro and Terra Catering and Shalom Kosher Catering.
“Terra American Bistro is the restaurant of my dreams and Bunz is following suit,” said Rossman, who recently received the inaugural San Diego Grown 365 Award from the San Diego County Farm Bureau for his perseverance in supporting local growers and making locally grown food more accessible to the average person. “We’re bringing the beautiful, locally grown produce from farms likes of Suzie’s Organic – and humanely raised meats – to communities where those ingredients are sparse or non-existent. We’re making food we’re proud to serve our own children.”
Menu items include flat-top hot dogs, local craft beer, breakfast items, breakfast cocktails, shakes and a beer float made with caramel and Stone Smoked Porter. Bunz will also be the first restaurant in town to serve concretes, dense and delicious frozen shakes. In the ’50s, these shakes were handed to customers upside-down as a way to demonstrate their thickness.
Bunz replaced the Rossman family’s 31 year-old Pam Pam Cafe & Grill, attached to Hotel Circle’s Days Hotel. Jeff, who was not involved with Pam Pam, had long waited to convert the spot to a casual eatery where he could serve the same high-quality, locally and humanely sourced ingredients guests get at Terra.
All menu items are under $10.00.
