This is the entrance to Kevin Rathbun Steak. It's incredibly hush-hush, almost CIA-level. There aren't any big signs, just a couple of small parking signs The interior has elements of a traditional steak house---brick and wood---but with a postmodern touch. The music is straight ahead jazz.
The photos of most the food weren't good enough to show you, which is too bad, but every course met my expectations for a place that is considered one of the top steak houses in the country. I started off with a wedge salad (they will make half sizes of all the salads). The bacon was perfect and the dressing was very rich It had a lot of bleu cheese but also several other flavors that were really wonderful.
I ordered a ribeye, onion rings, and the jalapeno corn. The jalapeno corn was really excellent---just enough heat complemented with a light cream. The onion rings were excellent; I couldn't finish them. The steak was done perfectly. The combination of the three dishes couldn't have been better.
My dessert was a chocolate hazelnut cake. I'm crazy for hazelnuts and the cake was very subtly done.
