Sexy burlesque-themed steak house around Union Square.
What We Had
Amuse of cauliflower soup with parsley oil. Really great. Not diet food but luscious and rich.
New England sea scallops with edamame succotash, black truffle butter & corn broth – Stellar. Nice hard sear on the scallops with a delicate yet flavorful broth.
Filet Mignon – Great steak. Good quality, cooked to perfection, and not messed with too much. It also came with A fabulous little roasted garlic head on the side.
Though it is sacrilege for both of us, the house steak sauce was really nice and we both had more than a single taste.
Black Truffle Creamed Spinach – Holy crap amazing. I will dream about this. Perhaps the single best thing I’ve eaten since the foie at Modern. I need this in my life.
Mac & Cheese – No complaints; good but not life changing.
The largest slab of cheesecake I’ve had the pleasure to tangle with on quite awhile, which was fabulous as well.
And a surprise birthday hot brownie with vanilla ice cream – an unexpected treat that was really very good.
At the time, I wrote ‘fantastical’ to describe the desserts.
Sexy reds and golds, with lots of leather, flocked velvet walls, dark wood, white tablecloth charm, celebs & tasteful nudie pics on the walls, and a swinging soundtrack.
Impeccable service. White vest old school style steakhouse service, friendly manager making personal visits.
A gem. While we were slightly sad to see the dining room was more tables and banquette seating and less the high-backed VIP room booths of our imagination, this was a great place to spend a birthday dinner. Sexy but not trashy, and really great food.
5 out of 5 for top notch food and stellar service in a romantic but classy enough environment to take a date or celebrate a birthday with a long time love. Zero complaints.
