My wife and I spent our 10th anniversary going to Ruth's Chris one night and Cracked Pepper the next. While Ruth's Chris was extremely delicious, the overall meal was better at Cracked Pepper, and about $50 cheaper.
We started by sharing the cheese plate, which was great; then the appetizer special which was seared scallops with a microgreen and crab salad - it looked like we licked the plate clean after we finished with it. For the entree and I had the pork loin, pancetta mashed potatoes, apple liquor gravy/sauce, and haricot vert. It was wonderful, but my wife's braised shortribs with a california chile jus, and mushroom polenta was a flavor explosion of awesomeness. Before dessert we tried their custom roast coffee, which was great. The bread pudding alone is reason enough to go. It's made with dinner rolls, croissants, and cheese danishes! Then surrounded by brandy caramel sauce and topped with homemade whipped cream.
The service was attentive and personable. We love the ambiance too.
A meal like the one described above will cost you, but if you love food, then it's more than worth it. We can't wait to go again.
