I had a party here last week. It was fantastic, from start to finish. The staff was attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious, best Tuna Tartar, NY Strip was cooked just right and the popovers never fail. My guest's all had a great time, I had a few special requests and they took care of everything. Thank you BLT
Sometimes you just need to treat yourself to some amazing food. Which is why sometimes, you need to go to this steakhouse. Ten times better than Peter Lugers, YES! And those pop overs . . . I wish I can have them delivered to my house daily.
worth the pop overs ALONE!!!.
I rolled into this place, half in the bag. They should have thrown me out, no instead they fed me to death!!!
Starting with the pop over....it was out of this world! I am like a pop over critic! Ever since working for a German whose pride and joy was pop overs I have been on the search to find something comparable to Wolfgangs pop overs, this place did it! and Hello apple butter!!
Ok, so they are bringing me drinks...I order Ceasar Salad, Side of Asparagus, and the Porterhouse for two (beer muscles) Let me tell you, the salad was fantastic, it could have fed four! And at this point, I asked for another pop over and one appeared, steaming hot and ready for butter. Ok, enough about the popovers.
So now the steak and asparagus shows up...ahh this is why it is pricey, the table can not fit all the food. The steak was on the bone, and pre sliced, oh and as rare as i had requested!!! So like a trooper I fought through as much of it as I could, but lost. The waiter packaged it all up and gave me the take home bag. I stumble to my room at the Ritz and an hour later I have some hunger coming on so I open the bag. What do I see??? the Waiter threw two pop overs in the bag for me! I would say service is fantastic!
The only con to the place was that I wasnt there when Kate Hudson was in for dinner, she would have been impressed with my ability to consume butter and out of this world hollandaise...my other passion.
If the attitude didn't overpower the food....
This place is a nightmare. From the manager on down, the attitude is such a turnoff that it makes it difficult to taste the food. Don't dare try to enter before 5pm for an after-work cocktail, they will look at you like you have aliens crawling from your ears. If you go, just be sure to avoid the spikey-haired skinny manager at all costs. He looks like he should be a counselor at a day camp, and he would probably be much better suited in that role.
