Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.
I bet you had absolutely no idea this Wednesday, April 27, is National Prime Rib Day. If you did know it, chances are you're either a complete loser, or morbidly obese, or a combination of the two.
If you're up for celebrating this joyous occasion on Wednesday night, the fine people over at Strip House have you covered. For one night only from 5 to 10:30 p.m., diners can enjoy a prime rib dinner for $44 per person (excluding tax, tip and gratuity).
Included in the dinner is the slow-roasted, mustard- and rosemary-crusted prime rib, served alongside some Yorkshire pudding. "These are some premium cuts of 28-day-plus dry-aged prime rib," says Strip House Executive Chef John Schenk.
Limited portions are available, as the restaurant is only preparing a few roasts for this one-night-only event.
Do some research and stay informed on the next national food day. There's a good chance some restaurant is celebrating it in style.
