Mmmm, steak!!

August 1, 2008

A few days after we got back from Hawaii, Boyfriend turned 27.

I took him to Alexander’s Steakhouse since he had requested steak for his birthday dinner.  While I can’t say it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten (Mastro’s and Cut top the list) it was probably THE best dining experience I’ve ever had.  Definitely the best we’ve experienced together.  (The reason why it wasn’t the best steak I’ve had is because I prefer steak without sauce.  I feel like a good steak doesn’t need anything on it and I would rather have the wonderful beef taste.  Most steaks at Alexander’s were dressed up with some kind of fancy sauce.) 

I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves.  The food was excellent, the service was superb, the atmosphere was perfect and I don’t think anything about the evening could’ve been changed to make it a better dining experience.

Free champagne and tuna tartare appetizer because we were celebrating a special occasion.

Salad with edible flowers. 

The hamachi shooters were AWESOME!  I wish we ordered a couple more but had to leave room for the other stuff we ordered.  This is one of the things Alexander’s is known for.

Awesome rasberry drink they brought out for us to cleanse our palate before we were served our steak.

Boyfriend’s Porterhouse.

My filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms.

Crimini mushrooms.

White truffle oil french fries.  This bag was $10 or $12 but worth it.

They give you free cotton candy at the end of your meal!  Each night is a different flavor.  We had Sassy Apple… it was so—o good!

I had told the restaurant in advance that we would be celebrating Boyfriend’s birthday.  They exquisitely wrote this message in white chocolate!!  It was so pretty.
