Went to Blackstone's for a birthday celebration with friends and family. Second time at this true NY style steakhouse restaurant, and the food was once again superb. Dark and anointed with oil paintings of cows, red velvet seat covers and tables of men in golf clothes makes it feel like the real McCoy, if it weren't for the tables with lots of kids, which is strange for a steakhouse, but not annoying. The service was quite a bit slower this time, but it was worth the wait. Hubby and I both had the scallop/shrimp appetizer special, which was fantastic--lovely sauce and served on a bed of spinach. Son had the tomato basil salad, and said that the tomatoes were wonderfully flavorful. Blackstone's serves this dish with onions, not my preference, but I didn't order it. Iceberg lettuce with blue cheese got rave reviews from the friend.
Then comes...the STEAK. It's a true occasion at Blackstones. They parade these succulent gems out on carts, and you just start hoping against hope that it's your turn, only to be faked out by the aroma that passes you by to another table. And then...it arrives.
Two massive ribeyes that were cooked to perfection, and two filets (one petite, one not so much) that commanded the same attention. The light seasoning and charring on the outside is mouth-watering and if you love a good steak, this is heaven. They were done to perfection. Don't miss the creamed spinach either. We savored every bite, conversation waned as we took in the art that is a Blackstone's ribeye or filet. They even have a porterhouse that serves 4. Yup, that's right--a single piece of beef that will serve an entire family. At $44 a piece, that's almost a $200 cut, but it must be something.
Dessert was light and simple after a big meal--lemon sorbet, and a slice carrot cake for the table. We had limited alcohol (1 red wine and 1 beer) and three large bottles of sparkling water and the total bill with tip came to almost $400. A real treat for a special occasion!
