We started the dinner with a few appetizers. The Beef Carpaccio served on a Himalayan salt block is delicious USDA Prime thinly sliced sirloin. Our only issue is that the beef is sliced too thick, so the portion seemed a bit small.
Next we moved on to the Crab Cake served with cognac mustard & ginger sauces. This is a wonderful example of a crab cake, with lots of crab and little filler. The flavors are great and left us wanting more.
We both ordered charbroiled Filet Mignons ~ Pam got the 10oz and Jeff jumped in for the 14oz. While Pam ordered hers Medium Rare, Jeff went a bit more aggressive and ordered it Rare. Both steaks arrived perfectly cooked and were delicious. Along with the steaks, we ordered Butternut Squash with Spinach & Bleu Cheese Fondue. It was perfect and the Blue Cheese is a great addition to this dish. We also got the standard Roasted Wild Mushrooms, something we can’t pass up.
Smith and Wollensky is a good choice for steak, and the service is always top notch.
