Nick and Stef's $40 prix fixe
My guy loves a regular steakhouse dinner. I make 'em sometimes and mine are fab, but I'm only home for a week and am tempted to cheat a bit and take him out.
My question is whose been to N&S and esp. comments on the $40 deal.
..."esp. comments on the $40 deal."
You are referring to the "Nick & Stef's Steakhouse 10th Anniversary Menu" :
You'd get: salad, filet mignon, 1 side, and dessert for $39.95. The problem is they don't tell you how big the filet is, so you should assume it's a petit filet of 6 to 7 ozs., maybe 8 if your lucky.
IMHO, a better deal for a Steak lover is The Palm's "Classic Steak Dinner" (expiries 9/30) - soup (lobster bisque) or salad, Filet Mignon 14 oz. or NY Strip 16 oz., 1 side, but no dessert - $39.95. I would gladly give up that dessert for double the beef anytime:
For future steak dining decisions, I did a price comparison 18 months ago you might find useful:
I'll do the Palm's. More meat for the boy plus lobster bisque for me.
I'm w/ you about dessert. It's such a throw in thing at a regular steak place. We're better off getting really full and having ice cream the next day.
Loved your link to steak joints pricing. Its going into my birthday rotation.
