Gotham Steakhouse – Bone-In Rib Steak
I love me some steak! So I finally got to try out Gotham Steakhouse in December and have to say that the food was pretty good.
As with most classical steakhouses, you order your steak and everything else is extra. This is in comparison to the more family-friendly places like The Keg where your steak dinner comes with your choice of sides.
We started with an order of Caesar Salad with creamy anchovy dressing and grana padano cheese. This was a really good Caesar salad with definite hits of garlic on the crisp lettuce. They even split the salad onto two plates for us to share.
The side dishes are on the large side and are meant for sharing. We opted for the Gorgonzola Mac and Cheese ($14.75) but we should have known that it wouldn’t be our favourite as we don’t generally like the sharpness of gorgonzola. I think this would have been much better if they stuck with a different cheese.
The Steak and Lobster was served with a filet mignon. As you can tell in the picture, plating is very simple. The filet was quite tender. As to be expected however, it wasn’t very flavourful. They offered to do table-service for the lobster tail where they remove the lobster meat for you. But the lobster meat is already partially removed from the tail so we decided against it.
I opted for the 20 oz bone-n Rib Steak ($64.50). My steak was super tender and flavourful from the fatty bits marbled throughout. In terms of flavour, it is definitely near the top of the list for me for rib steaks. I actually think the rib steak that we had at d.k. Steak House in Waikiki was better… but we don’t live in Hawaii (unfortunately).
For dessert, we tried their Key Lime Pie ($12). Despite being pretty full, we practically inhaled this dessert. I’m always a little leary of ordering key lime pie because I’ve had a difficult time finding a good version. I’m happy to report that the key lime pie at Gotham is quite good. It was light and not too tart with a perfect crust.
It’s a bit expensive at Gotham but I did enjoy my meal. Makes me long for our visit to d.k. Steak House though.
