Went last night. Got smaller ribeye. Very well seasoned and well cooked. Like that you can order multiple sizes. Great wine list, and seemed pretty affordable for a steak place. I didn't get the try the pizza, but the grilled prawns were pretty good.
Obviously new place, but glad to see expansion in a tough economy. I think the cliche "old school" steakhouses are going to be a thing of the past. This concept is interesting, not intimidating, and doesn't leave you feeling like you spent the last hour stuffing your face. I love Manny's but their sides are overpriced and just ok in my book...also always for two.
How did the steak compare to Manny's or Capitol Grille? Honestly I'm not the biggest steak fan but, I think prefer Capitol Grille as of late. It's cool that it has a non-traditional steakhouse vibe but if the steak isn't up to par I doubt I will be going here. I've had some friends go and say that the pizzas are really good though. I did hear there is no cocktail program at Burch which is a bit disappointing.
Just had the best soup and dessert EVER.
(squash with escargot, and chocolate tablets with poached pear, wow, with the sugary crystalized nature of a creme brulee top) Ribeye was sublime. Looking forward to the pizza and bar downstairs next time. Learned you can order upstairs whatever they have downstairs. Didn't realize they had lamb on the downstairs menu. My companion LOVED the pork shoulder with polenta and lemon tart.
Prices for many small plates very reasonable, imaginative, delicious. enjoy!
I liked it. Rib eyes, prime, were very good, sides were great, appetizers were good. We really liked the dumplings. I can see going here a lot. we were told there will be a cocktail program, it just hasn't been completed yet. I get the feeling they opened a little prematurely - maybe due to demand? Things seem a little unfinished.
