| Ruth Chris's in downtown Austin invited a group of Austin bloggers to check out their menu, and needless to say, I left pleasantly surprised. Of all things, I now associate the smell of brown butter with Ruth Chris's. If you know the smell of brown butter, that is a good thing. A very good thing. Photos by John M.P. Knox.|
The meal started off with a nice bottle of wine.
The stuffed mushrooms were fabulous.
The crab cake was made with huge pieces of lump crap and covered with an incredibly rich sauce.
I'm already a mushroom lover so it isn't a surprise that I found this dish fabulous. Four different types of mushrooms. Oooooooh yes.
Ruth Chris's steaks are prepared in a very particular fashion. They are cooked at 1500 degrees, and finished with butter on a hot plate. What that means is that by the time the steak gets to you, it smells of brown butter. Brown butter + steak is pretty fantastic.
Seared Ahi Tuna.
Delicious creme brulee.
Amazingly taste like someone's grandma made it bread pudding.
