Off Menu and New Menu at Lux Steakhouse

Duck with arugula
The humans went to Lux Steakhouse tonight to use one of their Groupons they had bought.  As always, the food was delicious, complemented by an amazing front of house staff.

Near the end, after the humans were already stuffed full having devoured a baked camembert, salmon with orzo, and an 8 oz steak (eek!) with a lobster tail rivaling the size of the steak (eek!), sous chef Eric brought out some off menu items executive chef Tony Le had created for us to try.

Ladies and La Persaud (CLOSED)

Eeek! Steak tartare!
I recently had the honor of escorting 3 bootiful (aka. beautiful) ladies, including @thepolishviking and @andrealauder to La Persaud for dinner. A dim lit, romantic looking restaurant, the perfect setting for this bovine to wine and dine my companions.
