Restaurant Week is over.
“No, say it isn’t so!”
“It is so…..”
I’m gushing over my KCRW2014 experience, I feel ( for the most part ) restaurants are really embracing the dine-out rush and the spirit of the event. I want to say everything and anything good about the steak, service, and experience, but alas this isn’t a food blog
“Topicality is essential to maintaining an informative and lively discussion” Debater’s Handbook circa 2003 )
so I will stick to a brief one review on all of the restaurants I visited and my plans for next year!
Favorite restaurant for 2014: Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
The 500 degree plate sealed the deal, simple and true to its ingredients, but still so yummy! ( -.5 for taking my dessert before I was done 😦 )
Great new additions to the menu ( and they offer a similar menu year-round! )
McCormick and Schmidt
Food was great, service was not.
Fogo De Chao
Came twice, over opinion: Too busy to stay awesome; the long waiting time grated on my nerves. However, it’s a good time to really take in what the salad bar has to offer.
Food is true to its ingredients, but rather bland and overall boring. Go to Houston’s or save up for Ruth’s Chris.
Full reviews for the restaurants are on Yelp ( I’ve got 2 accounts so Message me if you can’t find me ) and they are fairly extensive …..I’m trying to make it to Yelp Elite, Can you tell ?
Top Picks for 2015
- Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse
- Capital Grille
- McCormick and Schmidts
