Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Bring bounteous fare across a wine-dark sea with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of New American and Mediterranean-inspired dinner cuisine at The Palm Beach Steakhouse.
In crafting its elegant dinner menu, The Palm Beach Steakhouse tactfully unites fresh ingredients selected from regions around the world. Diners can appease volcanic appetites by sacrificing an order of saganaki, featuring sharp kefalograviera cheese, pan-seared and served flambé with fresh lemon juice ($10). Stay planted in Mediterranean mouthfuls with a classic Greek entree, or express national pride by opting for an appetizer of California avocados filled with Maryland jumbo lump crabmeat and drizzled with rosemary sauce ($18). The steak diane tops the restaurant's list of classics, showcasing beef tenderloin medallions sautéed with shallots in a scintillating dijon-armagnac sauce, served with potato gratin dauphinoise and sleeping asparagus ($35).
To compose each epicurean orchestration, executive chef Andreas Kotsifos employs an arsenal of techniques accumulated through his years of cooking in the kitchens of Florence, Paris, and Manhattan. Each dish Kotsifos crafts at The Palm Beach Steakhouse is enhanced by the restaurant's upscale, yet welcoming atmosphere, in which patrons feel fine dining on a date, with a friend, or wearing a denim top hat.
- I've been to many a steakhouse but this one was the best. Took four fussy lawyers there last Thursday and had great service, large drinks, and steaks were done to a T. Will be back again and again. – A MenuPages user on 10/19/08
The Palm Beach Steak House
During his more than 25 years as a culinary wizard, Andreas Kotsifos has prepared dishes in Paris, Florence, and Manhattan. But as executive chef of The Palm Beach Steak House, he draws from the cuisine of another country altogether: Greece. Though his menu isn't lacking in steak-house staples—filet mignon cooked at 1,600 degrees, Black Angus prime rib slow-roasted in a blend of special spices—there's also no shortage of classic Greek entrees. Moussaka saturates ground lamb and beef with béchamel sauce, and the dolmades entree wraps rice, beef, and herbs in grape leaves. Diners can even indulge in baklava for dessert or giant Greek lima beans for tricking uncles into thinking they're shrinking.
With its white linens and mood lighting, The Palm Beach Steak House blends elements of a trendy lounge with an upscale neighborhood bistro. Patrons typically arrive dressed in attire ranging from resort-casual slacks and shirts to highly formal penguin costumes.
