But before we went, I did some 10 minute burpee challenge.
The elevator attendant told us a bit about the building, that it was the original Hilton Hotel and has been around since 1938. Another interesting thing is Elizabeth Taylor actually had her wedding in this restaurant. You can read more of the history on their page.
After scrolling around the menu, we decided both would have the steak.
I ordered Prime New York Steak (I asked the waiter to make sure it’s gluten free and he happily accommodated it) – no sauce and only steak and veggie of my choice.
Boy, that steak was HUGE and I admit that I finished the entire thing! On the second thought, they might give me a bigger portion of steak since I didn’t have any carby dish (potatoes, rice, pasta etc) and might not be enough if they just gave me the typical small portion. Oh well, I won’t refuse more protein!
We also ordered some salad and even though usually they charge for splitting the dish, the waiter waived it for us. How nice I chose Salade de Maman which came with a dijon mustard dressing, but he put it on the side PLUS he brought us olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
We talked and pretty much just relaxing and waited for the alcohol to wear off a bit. This was our first time ever to have a fine dining. If it wasn’t because of Groupon ($25 for $50), I don’t think I’ll ever think of going to a fine dining restaurant, especially not in our current situation. Since we both were stuffed from the meal, so no desserts. After all, I already had enough sugar rush from the cocktail drink. No need to add more.
