This traditional US style Steak House, newly opened in October, has brought a new dimension to the Old Town and fills a niche in Bucharest as a place to have a really top quality Steak. Operated by Justin Costello and his team, its standards are high.
I could not resist the tasty Roasted Marrow Bone on the starter menu, something I have not seen since my last visit to New York - a real treat! Cooked to order, there is an extensive selection of steaks from around the world, of different cuts, from Europe, New Zealand, and at a premium price, the very finest from the USA. I had a Rib Eye Steak from US beef, which was excellent.
All the steaks are available in two different weights so you choose according to your hunger level. I would suggest consulting with the waiter before you order to help you with your choice and be advised on appropriate side dishes and sauces. They are served as extras.
The menu is extensive, The Surf and Turf is a nice combination of Fillet Steak and Black Tiger Prawns. There are good home made Burgers and on my hit list for next time is the Baby Back Pork Ribs. Desserts are good too.
The lunch time menu served between 12 noon and 2.30pm offers good value on set menus priced at 20 to 30 Ron.
The Restaurant itself has simple decor, dark wooden floors and tables to match with comfortable red velvet banquet seating at the window tables and around the walls. Upstairs there is another large seating area which can be booked for private functions.
Open from 12 Noon until Midnight everyday.
