Forman Beef & Beer is located right near the pick-up stop for the Holiday Inn Brno shuttle. Brno is loaded with steak places, and Forman was recommended by a friend of ours. The restaurant is nicely furnished and is a somewhat imposing two story building for Brno.
The Asian Beef Salad (~$8) was a sparse bed of lettuce, with tender chunks of beef adorning the salad. The salad was a little heavily dressed in a sweet, sesame dressing. Lime was served on the side to help cut down on the sweetness. Two slices of bread were also served with the salad.
The Creamy Mushroom Soup (~$3.50) was very rich and creamy. Pieces of mushroom were swimming throughout the bowl. The soup was nicely earthy, and contained something that I could not pinpoint but made the soup intriguing and enjoyable. The soup was strangely adorned with a few slices of beef carpaccio.
The Beef Burger (~$9.75) was cooked to a nice medium. The thick patty was nice and juicy. The burger was topped with a slight, overly sweet teriyaki sauce, slices of avocado and a spicy mayo dressing. The interplay between the teriyaki sauce and miso dressing was a rather interesting mixture of flavors. The sweetness was subdued by the saltiness of the miso. The avocado also added another layer of richness. The fries were thickly cut, but could have been crisper.
The Rib Eye (~$14.00) was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The steak had a nice beefy flavor. The steak was slightly under seasoned, but juicy. The steak came with a side of peppery arugula, and some gummy mashed potatoes.
The Chocolate Cake was very rich and decadent. It came with marinated cherries, which were intensely flavored. The cherries did slightly overpower the chocolate, but it was still an enjoyable dessert.
Although Forman is one of the more expensive restaurants in Brno, we had a very good meal and thought it was worth the cost.
