Restaurant Week – Lunch – Menu

The first official lunch tasted during 2010 Restaurant Week, it set a wonderful tone for the rest of the week!  Across the street from the Majestic Theater, it’s one of the places that’s easy to get to downtown with a parking garage on adjacent corner.  ($5 or less, depending on how quickly you eat/linger/wait in-between courses.)

Calling ahead of time for reservations (a whole 5 minutes, from the parking garage to be precise) we were met by our friendly host, with Restaurant Week menus in hand.  Starting with the Chef’s soup du jour (a rich tomato bisque) and a mixed green salad, we enjoyed the choices of 3 different breads before moving to the next course.  Although I still need to check, the bread was served with butter, radishes, a pepper, and a pickle!  The pickle, although surprising, was delicious, and the radish packed a spicy little kick.

Although my friend and I were the underdog against 3 entree choices, we eventually settled on the 8oz Sirloin with porcini mushroom whipped potatoes and a fabulous cabernet wine demi and the New York steak sandwich, served on crisp French bread, a wonderful horseradish aioli, leaving little to be desired.  (Discounting the 3rd entree choice of course…a Panko crusted Ahi Tuna).

Our meal ended with tropical favorite – key lime pie.  Served with fresh whipped cream, the graham cracker crust was solid against the strong, lime goodness of the pie.

If you don’t make it this week, please stop by before or after a show at the theater.
