Prime cuts of beef sizzle at The Silver Fox Steakhouse, where chef Jack Atkinson curates a menu packed with steak, seafood, and elegant American eats. Take a break from bench-pressing enormous bottles of wine to dine on the Cab Calloway fillet ($37)—8 ounces of seasoned meat topped with three shrimp—which arrives smothered in bordelaise sauce, much like the microphones that Calloway ate after each performance. The champagne mussels arrive cooked in garlic, onion, thyme, and cream sauce ($12), while fresh fruits de mer can be plucked from tiers of barramundi, ocean perch, scallops, and shrimp ($32).
The scrape of knives being sharpened, flames shooting from the teppanyaki grill?these are but two signs that another meal has begun at Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse. Here, chefs toss teriyaki salmon filets and 22-ounce rib eye steaks with housemade sauces and seasonings, all before diners' eyes. The feasts come complete with Japanese onion soup, salad, shrimp, and grilled veggies.
While hibachi chefs man their grills, sushi chefs artfully assemble 20 specialty and deep-fried rolls. The latter category features a roll named for the restaurant itself?the Hibachi?jam-packed with filet mignon and cream cheese. Raw specialties, meanwhile, include the Halloween roll, a mixture of spicy and white tuna topped with black tobiko, a tastier alternative to melted-down candy corn. Complemented by more than 10 cocktails, feasts unfold inside Hibachi's five eateries in Independence, Fairview Park, Mentor, Highland Heights, and Erie.
Homemade, cooked-to-order meals pair with a roster of 14 on-tap beers to bring a taste of the Emerald Isle to the East Coast. This cozy eatery is designed to replicate an authentic Irish pub, down to the front doors that creak in a thick brogue. Locals may relax with a pint at tables near the front of the pub, or move through dark French doors to sit in the dining room. Between bites and laughs, patrons shift their attention to six flat-screen TVs or the tunes scrolling across an Internet jukebox. Upstairs, a spacious banquet room plays host to parties, and outside, a covered patio accents summertime meals with warm breezes and the rustling of trees wrestling to get a better view of the pub's signature potato leek soup.
Beneath the white siding, curved gables, and elegant green trim of an historic western New York home lies The Dove Restaurant, previously known as The Old Pony Post. Though owners Dina Mattiello and Sherry Davies come from different backgrounds, both were drawn to the idea of running a Italian Continental eatery. Their passion shows in the way they breathe new life into the same, signature family recipes. Signature dishes range from steaks?such as the chateaubriand for two, a pair of 10-ounce center-cut filets with vegetables and a duet of sauces?to pasta fagoli and shrimp scampi. Gluten-free dishes are also featured along side warm homemade breads and indulgent desserts.
Since 1967, Scotch 'n Sirloin's smoky scotches, sizzling steaks, and rustic cabin setting have made it a favorite destination for couples and ravenous lumberjacks alike. The kitchen grills up classic cuts including tender filet mignon and tangy teriyaki-marinated sirloin, and slow-roasts prime rib before plating it with sides such as baked potatoes and sweet potato fries. Besides beef, the restaurant also serves charbroiled lobster tail, center-cut pork chops, and hearty surf-and-turf platters. Bites are accompanied, naturally, by sips of fine scotches and bourbons.
Back in business after a fire in 2009, the Boston Hotel boasts a menu of USDA Choice steaks and prime rib, as well as sea scallops and lobster. The restaurant?s many fresh fish offerings get added attention on Fridays with specials that include a fresh haddock fish fry and linguini with fresh clam sauce. A selection of draft beers helps wash down entrees or enliven open-bar parties. Lunch hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
