TRIB Steakhouse

on

The "TRIB Steakhouse" also known as The Tribune is located on Stephen Avenue at 118 8th Avenue SW. My office building is right near Stephen Ave so I will often troll up this trendy street looking for a nice patio or yummy place to eat. I think TRIB has an excellent lunch menu with the most expensive entree only $20!!! And for a steak? I think it's a GREAT price!!!

I was starving and decided on the Fettucine with scallops, creamy asparagus pesto and toasted almonds for $18.. They literally had me at "creamy asparagus pesto".... YUM! This dish was DELICIOUS and the scallops were perfectly sauteed and tasted like candy... 

My date went with the Wild Mushroom Fettuccine for $18 with had basil, truffle oil, and shaved Parmesan in a red wine sauce. Although both our dishes were delicious we were still hungry for dessert...

For dessert we decided to try something a little different... Tarte Tatin!!!! For $15 this plate was meant for sharing and the Tarte Tatin in this case was prepared table-side which is always really fun! They wheeled out a cart with the large apple tart and flambeed some Brandy to pour over the dish. It was DELICIOUS!!! Tarte Tatin is described as "an upside-down apple tart in which the apples are caramelized in butter and sugar before the tart is baked".
The puff pastry that made up the crust was unbelievable- so flaky and one of the best crusts I have ever had. The apples were perfectly tender and entire halves of apples melted in your mouth... What a decadent treat!

Food FaNaTiC Rating: 10/10!!! Great food and the price is right :)
