Mansmell and I had dinner at Pacific Dining Car
on Thursday. Yummers.
PDC is deliciously dark and old-school. It's the perfect restaurant for a man's man.
We started with some lobster cakes. No filler here. The real deal. Fantastic with the accompanying saffron aioli.
I had a very good Caesar salad.
The Filet Oscar was my entree -- filet mignon with Dungeness crab, fresh asparagus and blanketed with Bearnaise sauce. It was like an amalgamated surf and turf. Great.
Dessert was apple tart tatin -- warm apples atop a flaky buttery crust with apple ice cream. Love.
My steak was substantial enough that I brought some of it home. Mr. Monkey snarfed it up the next day.
PDC is my go-to place for traditional steak. It's the ideal place if you want food that is high quality and classic. Thanks for a great dinner, Mansmell!
oh steak. yum. i've been craving cow for a few days now.ReplyDelete
so sad, but i only think of the big green and blue buildings (and soon to be red) in west hollywood when i hear "PDC."
yum! all of it!ReplyDelete
Mmmmm. I need to go here. I'm finding that all the classic, old-school joints are closing and being replaced by hip and trendy establishments. This makes me sad.ReplyDelete
I'm Googling that long A word right now. Me no like big words.ReplyDelete
Yum! I love that place!ReplyDelete
I love that restaurant! So old-fashioned.ReplyDelete
Oh yum. Food can always bring you joy :)ReplyDelete

Food can almost always produce a smile. But just in case it's not enough, I've got a hug for you.ReplyDelete
