Keens on Valentines Day

My wife and I went to Keens for Valentines Day and I must say it was an absolutely brilliant meal, we arrived a couple minutes after our appointed reservation time but were promptly seated in the lovely bull moose room which has the lovely reds and deep brown on the walls, I had a perfectly made Tom Collins and she had light vodka cranberry, for starters I had a tasty lobster bisque with little bits of chive and lobster dancing around and she had the house cured salmon which was amazingly luscious with some red onions and capers served with some dark rye or pumpernickel toast points.

For mains I had a medium T-bone and she had a medium rare mutton chop and again both came out perfectly - both with lovely crusts, mine was pink in the middle and hers was pink and raw inside (just the way she likes it) my t-bone was aged perfectly and tasted like it came from the best grain-fed steer from Texas, the mutton chop was a MONSTER, she enjoyed it thoroughly and I had a couple of bites, we shared a side of the sauteed wild mushrooms. For dessert we shared an amazing warm blueberry crumble. They served us after dinner strawberries dipped in dark and white chocolate with the bill. All in All a very lovely meal, our main waiter was helpful and attentive but not intrusively so.

We are planning on heading back there soon to have the porterhouse which came sizzling by us a couple of times as they were being delivered to other tables around us.

Kudos to Keens for making our Valentines Day meal so memorable!!

      When Bruni reviewed Keens, he mentioned that the mutton chop is saddle of lamb.

      As for prices, it sounds as though they were serving their regular menu, so you can see prices on their website,
