Nick and Sam’s. If you have spent time in Dallas, watch the show Dallas, or keep up with the best steakhouses in the USA, then you have heard of Nick and Sam’s.
Warning: If you are a vegetarian and don’t eat steak, you may be tempted to after reading this post.
I don’t eat steak regularly but when I do I go all out. Gimme that full 10 ounces of filet mignon. #pleaseandthankyou
Nick and Sam’s is really good. I mean REALLY good. I have been to my share of steakhouses in the country since I love having a good steak with some red wine to celebrate a special occasion. Peter Luger. Been there, done that. Love it. Sparks NYC. Drooling. Also have been to the less traditional steakhouses like BLT and STK. Alphabet soup of steakhouses…
In terms of ambience, the piano player in the main dining room and the art deco decor of the restaurant transport you to the Prohibition Era. Think Great Gatsby meets Chicago. It would’ve been fun to live in the Roaring Twenties I’m thinking. Any Nick Carraway’s out there?
Even though I love the New York steakhouses with my favorite probably being the original Smith & Wollensky, followed by Peter Luger and Sparks, I feel that Nick and Sam’s is on the same level as these places…if not better. I know, bold. People worship Peter Luger more than some people worship god. BUT everything at Nick and Sam’s is just so good. Spinach salad to start with a poached egg on top. Amazing. Not to mention the caviar and toast points they give to the table before the meal. Delicious. Sorry Nemo.
Caviar toast with all the toppings…pretty awesome alternative to the usual bread and butter…
The steak is cooked to perfection and you know what compliments it so well…sweet potato fries…and lobster mac n’ cheese. Gimme. Also – has anyone ever turned down creamy delicious goodness that is au gratin potatoes? I don’t think so.
