The Lawry's Cut and Crepe Suzette

Lawry's Cut with creamed corn and spinach

Here at Lawry's tonight to say farewell to an old friend, we both grabbed the eponymous Lawry's Cut rather than the English Cut or the "DJB." I think I actually liked this the best out of the three, being as tender and tasty as it is, although I don't think there is anything to complain about at Lawry's (aside from those beet slivers that they put in their salad - yuck). It sure was light years ahead of Black Angus!

Crepe SuzetteThey were also taking a bit of pride in some Crepe Suzette kind of thing for dessert, which they flambeed for you in front of your table with Grand Marnier and Cointreau. It seemed a bit odd at first as they squeezed fresh orange juice into a pan and threw some frail looking pre-made crepes into it before flambeing, but after adding on the ice cream and and garnishings on top, it looked a bit more respectable. Admittedly, I couldn't quite get used to the orange taste, but it still went down pretty quickly.

what a great photo. I love prime rib, but the spininch, creamed corn, and mashed potatoes in a pool of gravy look great. All it needs is a piece of bread to mop the sauce and a fresh sliced tomato. I had enough meat over the holidays.
