Last week I was fortunate enough to eat out twice. The first time was on Monday, and then again on my regular eat out day, Friday. A friend of mine in the office decided to pick up lunch at Art's Hideaway.
Normally, I have the burger with french fries, but this time, I was encouraged to have the steak with garlic mashed potatoes. I thought it would be a bit too much for lunch, and it was....
The steak was cooked to order, and for a well done steak, this one was still a bit moist and tender. There wasn't too much fat on this piece of New York steak, and it had just the right amount of flavor. Not too salty, with just the right amount of garlic and pepper. This steak was just as good as any steak that I would put on the grill at home. The salad was comprised of fresh mixed greens, and I ate them without the dressing. The garlic mashed potatoes were fine, but nothing spectacular.
After eating the steak, the garlic mashed potatoes, the sautéed mushrooms and the tossed salad, I was stuffed. I seriously needed a nap! While the steak was good, I think I'll order the burger the next time. The food at Art's is quite good, and just like homemade. Maybe that's why I keep on coming back.
