Elbert’s Steak Room ♥ ♥ ♥


My favorite animal is steak.

Fran Lebowitz, so you read my mind.



I can’t believe I almost missed this dinner.


But, thanks to Auntie Baby, I get here in time.

What I like about Elbert’s steaks is that they are very nicely seasoned. The restaurant website says they use only grape seed oil, freshly ground pepper, and Sicilian sea salt.

And I agree. When you have good quality meat, these are all you need.

Our server places 2 sets of sauces and condiments on our table.

I tell you, we almost never feel the need to dip our steaks into them.
