Make no mistake: B&B Butcher Shop & Restaurant’s prices are right up there with venerable steakhouses Vic & Anthony’s, Killen’s and Pappas Bros. The onsite, dry-aged steak program includes Wagyu from Gearhart Ranch in West Texas, Kobe from Japan and USDA Prime. Where B&B tends to slip, though, is in the side dishes. The truffle macaroni and cheese reins in the truffle oil to the role of supporting player, but overall it’s more creamy than cheesy. While the lobster fried rice has pretty substantial chunks of meat, it tends to be too sweet, as if it had too big of a dose of teriyaki sauce. There are, however, other don’t-miss dishes besides the steaks, like the carrot cake so dark and rich that it seems a relative of sticky toffee pudding and the juicy Butcher Burger. The wine-by-the-bottle list has better values in store than by the glass and we were able to pluck a stunning French rosé from it for $47. For a romantic nighttime meal, eschew the bustling dining room in favor of the view of the downtown skyline from the upstairs balcony. Do be aware, though, that smoking is allowed there and it may take some finagling to secure a table away from any stinky stogies.
