Black and Blue: A Dinner of Meaty Proportions

DesignGirl July 2, 2012 American, Downtown, Four Beakers, Steakhouse

Black & Blue is owned by the Glowbal Group. The same people who bring us Coast, Italian Kitchen and many others.Black & Blue is a steakhouse that prides themselves of having amazing steaks.

It was a special occasion for a few awesome SFU alumni and the amazing Sam Thiara! FoodPunk chose this place to have our little get together.

The interior is very gorgeous. High ceilings with two floors.

 Fresh Oysters ($3.75) We ordered the Kusshi and the Effingham oysters. They are both locally sourced from BC! Angel has never ever had a raw oyster before, so, Ange and I made it a mission to get her to eat one. She loved it! Both of the oysters were really good and had their own subtle tastes that differentiated from each other.

Louie Salad with Dungeness Crab ($17) has romaine, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, eggs, avocado, louie dressing, and dungeness crab. This was an interesting twist on a salad. Its basically half a romaine. You have to cut it up yourself. Angel seemed to be enjoying it, but she really didn’t expect the salad to be more hands on. hahaha

P.E.I. blue ribbon  12oz New York Strip ($39) comes ala carte. You probably want to order a side for this dish. The steak is known for their superior marbling since they feed their cattle longer.

Mac & Cheese ($9) are deep-fried into little sticks. It is accompanied with a truffled cheese sauce. It was very delicious and the inside of it was very cheesy and gooey. It was highly recommended by the server and now I highly recommend it as well!

The steaks also came with 3 accompanying sauces - Chimichurri, Cabernet Jus,and Peppercorn. I actually quite liked the chimichurri sauce!

32 oz prime rib ($32) comes with yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, red wine jus, caramelized pearl onions and some horseradish. This prime rib was a good deal since it comes with a few items on the side. The prime rib was done perfectly and everything was very delicious!

New York Cheesecake was the special dessert of the day. We devoured it like a maniac. Very delicious and it was great how there were fresh berries.

20 Layer Chocolate Espresso Cake ($12) actually have 20 layers! We actually counted several times until everyone agreed there were 20 layers. This was my favorite since there were bits of crunchy espresso beans. It also comes with whipping cream and brandied cherries.

Overall, the experience was pretty good! The prices are reasonable and the ambiance is very nice! I’d probably come back for other special occasions since the prime rib wasn’t too expensive.
