Anyone tried BLT Steak of STK?
I'm looking for a place to celebrate my 30-something bday with my husband and another couple. I live in the Valley but was always really up on what's new and great in the city. We used to go otu all the time. I am a longtime foodie and wine person. For my bday, I kind of wanted someplace with a little sparkle and ambiance. Has anyone been to these two places? We've been to Mozza, Cut, All'Angelo, AOC, Republic and Grace recently. Any other suggestions?
BLT steak is awesome. Great food and energy. STK is younger and more night clubby. BLT has better food. Enjoy.
The food I had at BLT was very solid, nothing innovative or cutting edge, everything seasoned and cooked perfectly. Definitely get the crepes souffle for dessert.
Haven't been to BLT but had a great meal at STK last weekend. Oddly enough, though everyone seems to agree that the BLT crowd is noticeably older, I found the STK crowd to be surprisingly old, and I'm 40 myself. I guess that means the BLT folks are even further over the hill. I'd say STK would be a great event destination. And be sure to get the corn pudding side. No, really.
Well, we ate at STK last night, and it was quite the scene -- packed with celebs, studio execs and gaggles of scantily-clad blondes. The duck entree was delicious, but the steak was merely average, I'm afraid. You don't need great steak, I guess, when you have such a scene. Paparazzi swarmed the entrance. The food at STK is not on par with Cut or Boa or BLT, but the place was buzzing. I seriously doubt anyone was there just for the food. Avoid the bread pudding. It was dry and bland.
