Although my review of BLT Steak won’t come out for three weeks, I’ll give you a sneak peek only because I think it’s a sexy dining room and guys and gals are blowing up my e-mail asking me for sexy places to eat on Valentine’s Day. (That didn’t really come out the way I meant for it to, but you know what I mean.) Maybe it’s the lighting (everyone looks good) or the music (boomer rock), or the delicious cocktails (spiced apple mojito(s)), I’m not sure, but if the chef is on, the place is worth a visit. I don’t have prices, but their special Feb. 14 menu is below.
Passion Chili Margarita
Valentine’s Day Blackboard Specials
Endive and Apple Salad / Gorgonzola / Caramelized Walnuts
Sautéed Sea Scallops / Meyer Lemon / Hazelnut Brown Butter
Surf and Turf for 2 / Chateaubriand / Rock Lobster Tail
Sea Bass/ Cauliflower Puree / Hazelnut Emulsion
Macaroni Gratin / Black Truffles / Bucheron / English Cheddar
Broccoli Rabe / Toasted Pine Nuts / Garlic
Strawberry Shortcake / Lemon Crème Fraîche
Triple Chocolate Layer Cake / Praline Ice cream
Personally, I’d take a seat at the bar, have a cocktail, and nosh on selections from the raw bar and go home. But I don’t like Valentine’s Day all that much.
