Odell Beckham Jr. has a taste for the finer things in life, and the Buffalo Bills didn’t disappoint with their four-course gourmet menu for OBJ.
When it comes to ranking celebrity athletes, Odell Beckham Jr. is among the brightest stars, and it goes beyond just his incredible game.
Yes, he’s still iconic for his one-handed catch, but it was capitalizing on that image that made OBJ a household name. While in the New York market, OBJ frequented big-city events, showing off his style at the Met Gala and sitting courtside at NBA games.
When he decided to sign with the Los Angeles Rams last year, the lure of the Los Angeles lifestyle was a factor in the decision. After all, LA has been able to attract enterprising athletes like LeBron James, so it makes sense that OBJ would want to build his brand there as well.
Now, a recovered Beckham is on the hunt for his next NFL venture, and he’s not limiting his search to major metropolises. At this point, the OBJ brand will follow him wherever he goes, and there is no team more attractive than the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills have gone to great lengths to try to win Beckham over during his visit this weekend, including a recruiting team that (probably) includes Josh Allen. Von Miller and Stefon Diggs have been open about wanting to see OBJ as a future teammate, one who could help them realize their Super Bowl aspirations.
Part of winning Beckham over is showing off the best that Buffalo has to offer, and that includes an elegant four-course meal prepared by chef Darian Bryan. If Chef Bryan sounds familiar, it’s because he’s been featured on the Food Network, CBS News and ESPN due to his popularity with Bills players. Bradley Gelber of The Bills Wire dropped a photo of the menu, which looks good enough to make anyone move to Buffalo.
Bills cook lavish four-course meal to convince OBJ to sign in Buffalo
The first course consists of a fried goat cheese salad, a rich pairing that juxtaposes fried goat cheese and apples drizzled with balsamic and honey.
The second course, a Cajun seafood pasta, is a surefire way to win Beckham’s heart. While signing with his hometown team, the New Orleans Saints, doesn’t seem to be on the table, at least Beckham will know where he can prove his home if he moves to Buffalo.
However, the third course, steak al poivre, says it all. “Prime angus strip steak encrusted with peppercorns.” It’s a mouthful, and a delicious mouthful according to the lengthy description.
Then there are the dessert options that Sweet Pea Bakery offers: gooey shortbread cake with bourbon ice cream and red velvet cake.
Soon, Beckham will make one of the biggest decisions of his career, one that could very well decide whether or not he will win another Super Bowl ring. In truth, his decision could also influence whether or not the Bills win their first Lombardi.
Beckham’s visit to the Cowboys’ facility on Monday will no doubt complicate matters, but for Saturday night at least, Beckham’s toughest decision will be whether to go for a gooey shortbread cake or a slice of red velvet.
