Dinner – Centercut (a new steakhouse across the street from Lincoln Center in the Empire Hotel
Loretta and I did not make reservations, so we had to wait at the bar and we were really hungry, so we ordered appetizers - Onion Soup & Foie Gras spread w/ toast points. The onion soup was a little different from your traditional onion soup - the cheese and bread was on the bottom of the bowl ...yummy. The Foie Gras was smooth and buttery. I was really full by the end of our appetizers.
Prix Fixe menu was a little different than the rest you could pick two items from two courses-
Potato Soup w/ white truffle oil (deliciously creamy and essence of truffles)
Pepper steak (was done perfectly and wonderfully seasoned)
3rd course - was given to everyone, that's pretty cute and the cookies were big cookies!
An assortment of cookies (oatmeal, chocolate chip & peanut butter)
Service was considerate, but not too overpowering. Clean and crisp decor, dark woods and black leather chairs w/ big glass pane windows. This restaurant was really smart, because they extended their Restaurant Week prices to the end of March.
Food - 4 (out of 5)
Service - 4 (out of 5)
Ambiance - 4 (out of 5) a great NYC steakhouse - I do enjoy the older ones better though.
