We treated ourselves to some serious steak last night. It was our second time at this lovely place and it's replaced all other steak destinations for me. I love the atmosphere, it's comfortable and clubby, not kitchy like Taylors. They have a great piano bar which you can hear the piano in one of the two rooms they serve in, we've only sat in the room where the bar is (the bar is partially particianed). The service is good, just the right level of attention. The food is great, the portions very large. I can't speak about the wine list because we don't partake.

I had a rib-eye (16oz) with a great portabelo mushroom sauce (the sauce was a special) for I think about $30 and a warm spinach salad with bacon ($8) (it was missing the chopped egg in my opinion). According to the menu, they are very well-known for their crab cakes which we didn't try but maybe next time. Husband started with a Cream of Crab soup (a special, very fresh tasting) and had a Coulottes steak (his first time having that cut for about $26). Each steak comes with a baked potato or pasta but you can switch out that choice for any other potato on the menu. Hubby had the garlic mashed and it was very tasty. The only disappointing dish was my side of green beans which didn't seem any fresher than the one's I nuke at home from a freezer bag and they were oversalted.

Hubby had a tiramisu to finish, which was good, their dessert list isn't partularly imaginative. What's with all of these flourless chocolate cakes on menus. Who can eat something that heavy after a big steak?
