Fox Recipe Box: Lobster Newburg

CLEVELAND, Oh — Famed Cleveland chef Zack Bruell has fond memories from when he was a child and would visit his grandmother during the holiday seson and she would make Lobster Newburg.

Zack shared this treasured family recipe with Fox 8’s Wayne Dawson. He says this dish takes less than ten minutes to make, but  it will taste like you cooked for hours.

Zack wants to remind everyone that giving the ‘experience’ of fine dining with a restaurant gift card is a great holiday gift. To learn more about his restaurants click here.
