We are in Tacoma for a concert and some alone time this weekend, so I'll be posting a few reviews from up here.
Dinner tonight is at the Varsity Grill, a block away from our hotel. We started with potato skins, and while they are standard fare, I have had them come out very bad from other places. Here they were perfect. Just enough meat scooped out of the potato for them to be cooked very soft inside and nicely crisp outside.
For dinner I decided on the 20oz Porterhouse since the 72 oz requires 24 hours notice. Next time we'll go for the challenge!
I will say this is the best steak I have had in a very long time. Piled high with grilled onions and creamy blue cheese, it arrived cooked to a perfect medium rare. We are talking meat so tender I went to cut it and it just pulled off onto my fork folks. Pure fatboyheaven right there! Served with perfectly cooked asparagus and creamy garlic mashed potatoes and you have a meal well worth the $27.
If you are in town for a show and staying at the Madrano, give this place a try.
