Verdict? Recommended

My disappointment over the “Hickory-Mopped New York Strip” here at Steakhouse 55 has me a little worried. I mean, if they can’t do right by a New York, what hope do I have for the rest of the menu?

Elaine’s been working on her Slow-Roasted Prime Rib. Seeing my entree sadness, she smiles, swaps our plates, and says, “try this.” So I do.

Oh, man. This.

It’s a 12-ounce cut of meat. It’s moist. Cuts and chews easily. The temperature is perfect. And the whole thing just melts in the mouth, making way for another happy-making forkful. It’s wonderful.

The Prime Rib also comes with a light horseradish – almost a creme fresh. It’s a nice complement – not too strong, not overpowering at all. Delicious.

We eventually swapped back, but I did so reluctantly. The Prime Rib was far and away the better choice. It restored my faith in the restaurant.
