Review: Smith and Wollensky


Don't judge the steaks by the ambiance.
Every so often, I treat myself to a delicious steak. My friend Elle was in town so we all went out to dinner at Smith and Wollensky during Restaurant Week. Smith and Wollensky was one of the first big name steakhouses to come to DC in the nineties. Unlike Capital Grille (Republican) and The Palm (Democrat), Smith and Wollensky regularly hosts a bi-partisan crowd. Our waiter indicated that the times have changed with the recession and there are quite fewer corporate lunches.

Get started at Smith and Wollensky with the buttery bread that melts in your mouth. The House salad is nothing to write home about, but we all loved the juicy Filet Mignon. The huge slice of NY cheesecake was a fabulous way to finish the meal. We only sucked down three bottles of wine on special for Restaurant Week (only $25).
Fun and Tasty!
