July 18, 2009 | As I mentioned in the last entry, we had a birthday dinner to attend after the BBQ lunch for Bill’s birthday. For this occasion, we got dressed up and took a taxi to Perry’s Steakhouse. I’d never been before and didn’t know what to expect, but I was impressed as we were lead to a private room that had previously been a bank vault. Cool, huh?
We started with drinks as we waited for the rest of the party to arrive. I had some sort of sweet martini, can’t really remember what exactly. In any case, Marc and I decided to share a Beef Steak Tomato and Vidalia Onion Salad ($8.95), and a 12oz. Filet Perry Topped with Colossal Lump Crabmeat and herb garlic butter, with steamed asparagus ($42.95).
The steak might not look like much (both images are just my half), but by the time I got through with the salad, I had just enough room in my stomach to finish the main entree! It ended up being just the right amount!
I also got a bite of Linda’s lobster– that is, her second one, haha. Her first one ended up on the floor (gasp!) but they were nice enough to give her a second one out of the shell!
Beautiful, isn’t it? =) I also got to try Bill’s birthday dessert! It was a combo of creme brulee, rich chocolate piece, and something else that I can’t remember, haha. That creme brulee was delicious though!!
The price was reasonable for the occasion and food, though I probably won’t be returning any time too soon since it’s still fairly expensive. I think the coolest part of the dinner was still the part about being in a vault!
