PORTER HOUSE NEW YORK

Dinner at Porter House was a nice treat on a rainy Sunday evening.  I did some shopping at one of my favorite stores, Williams Sonoma.  Afterwards, I headed up the escalator to Michael Lomonaco’s steak house in the Time Warner Center at 10 Columbus Circle.  The food at Porter House is good.  However, I didn’t walk away feeling like I ate my money’s worth – after charging up a $113.00 bill. 

For starters, I had a creamy zucchini and basil soup served chilled. The soup has shrimp, grape tomatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil. I would have enjoyed the soup more had it been served warm; Nevertheless, it’s a pleasant dip for sourdough bread. I treated myself to a $48.00 filet mignon.  As a side dish, I had baked macaroni & cheese.  The mac & cheese is good, but I don’t like rosemary much.  I’m sure the rosemary was incorporated as a complementary flavoring during preparation of the béchamel.   

For dessert, I enjoyed their Homey Georgia Peach Pie.  I really loved the vanilla ice cream and the pie’s flakey crust and crumble top – very delicious!  The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere.   Unlike dinner at chain restaurants, where all courses crowd the table, each course attains special attention allowing you to savor every minute of  a course before moving on to the next.
