One of my favorite things to do is to go out to dinner. Not just because I don’t have to cook or clean up but I love trying new foods and I’m always looking for ideas on presentation so when I have my own dinner parties, I can impress people. I soak it in when I hear my guests talking about how something looks or tastes, it puts a smile on my face and it makes it all worth it. If I like to impress my guests, of course I’m looking to be impressed too! I’m very picky so when I say I died and went to heaven at David Burke Prime Steakhouse, you know it had to be amazing!
When it comes to steak, I want it to be a great cut that’s tender with minimum fat (fat grosses me out) and it needs to be cooked medium well. I know … I know the best steak is medium but I don’t like blood. I like a pink NOT red center, so get over it. I also love lobster and you’d be surprised how many times you probably had lobster over cooked. With all that said let’s just get into this spectacular night!
When you enter David Burke Prime Steakhouse at Foxwoods Resort Casino you can’t help but to look around as you walk into this contemporary steakhouse. The first thing I noticed was the high back booth chairs covered in cowhide. When we sat, I faced the 35-foot tall wine tower escalating up three stories. Ohhhh Mama, I just want to go sit in there for a few hours with a wine key!
All cuts of meat served at the restaurant are hand-picked by Chef Burke and dry-aged in the restaurant’s in-house dry-aging room with walls lined in imported pink Himalayan rock salt, crafted here in the U.S.
I can write it and video it but no words can truly describe this A-May-Zing thick slab of hanging bacon drenched and dripping with maple. The Maple Glazed Double Cut Pepper Bacon is served on a mini clothes line, smoked with maple and re-glazed so it’s dripping when it gets to your table. Just before it’s served Rosemary is lit under it and the smoke adds more flavor. Your teeth will stick together just looking at. My husband actually moaned when he tasted it. I almost looked under the table.
The Main Course
My favorites are steak and lobster so when the waiter told me about the surf & turf special, I was all over that! When they served this land and sea masterpiece I couldn’t take my eyes off it and didn’t know where to start. I was speechless (this is a record in its self). The filet mignon was cooked to perfection as the lobster laid against it atop a creamy risotto. I didn’t know if I wanted to eat it or marry it. Yes it was that beautiful! I ordered a steak hat of Horseradish Cream Sauce but truthfully I dipped one piece and didn’t want to miss any of the natural flavor of the steak. It was the best steak I ever had. I can say this because as the queen of picking apart a steak, I didn’t cut one piece off and ate the entire piece.
**CAUTION** Please don’t move on if you’re hungry- May cause mouth salivation
So simple yet so over the top. The David Burke’s Cheesecake Lollipop Tree for Two with bubble gum whipped cream. The cheesecake lollipops in different flavors will have your taste buds dancing with happiness. Forget the saying “With A Cherry On Top” because this tree is topped with cotton candy which is flavored. We had the apple and yes I made room!
There is a wine for everyone! How do I know this? Because I was………
The service was impeccable from the moment we walked in. We were guests at David Burke Prime but we watched all the other tables and saw how the servers really worked together to make sure each person had what they needed. They took the time to talk and make you feel like you were the only people there and with the dining room full you never waited for a refill, to place your order, or for a question.
One Last Cool Fun Fact:
When they bring the check, it’s served with cotton candy! Again so simple but gives it that extra special touch. You’re in luxury but in a relaxed setting. We were even visited by James, the General Manager, as he made his rounds to all the tables.
David Burke Prime Steakhouse is a must go! Totally worth the money! Make it a night to remember and plan to stay at Foxwoods Resort Casino!
Play. Filet. Stay.
