It’s been utterly a outing in a salute to a Boeuf Gras. We have been to 4 good places, eaten 4 good steaks and many importantly paid loyalty to one of a many iconic images of Mardi Gras. So, while we are out hailing Rex take a impulse or dual to simulate on what that fattened ox signifies. Fat Tuesday is that final hoorah before Lent gets here with a sacrifices that it brings. No matter either we give adult red beef on Fridays, or we give adult other pleasures in your life, revelry in Mardi Gras and a luxury that it brings.
Our final stop in a salute to a Boeuf Gras was Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Metairie. Sous Chef, Courtney Favria was friendly adequate to not usually ready Ruth’s Chris’ Tomahawk Ribeye, though she also was kind adequate to lay down and speak all things Ruth’s Chris including this grievous 40oz Ribeye that is meant for two. When this beef comes out it is truly something to behold. It is a genuine “show-stopper”. It is a bone-in Ribeye that looks like something good ol’ Fred Flintstone would puncture into. Favria tells us that there is a special proceed to portion this beef table-side. First, a large bone is cut divided from a beef and plated for a table. Next a beef itself is cut into 4 pieces (two sections of beef for any plate) and served for a propitious integrate that has taken a beginning to sequence this loyal covenant to excess. It is truly a beef that would be wise of a Boeuf Gras itself.
Mix in a integrate of RC’s signature sides like a Creamed Spinach, Lobster Mac and Cheese or a Sweet Potato Casserole and we are set to have a great, good dining experience. The excellent folks during RC’s gave us a tip when it comes to a Sweet Potato Casserole, sequence it with a side of vanilla ice cream and we won’t need dessert. We attempted it and child were they right. It positively creates for a good dining experience. I’m certain that skip Ruth (Fertel) would positively be unapproachable of a bequest that is carried on currently in any of her restaurants. Great steaks, good flavors and a good environment. Ruth’s Chris, a place estimable of saluting a Boeuf Gras. Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!
