I don't eat at steakhouses often. I mean, I love to eat, but steakhouses are like Korean BBQ joints. You really have to commit to a night of eating! I was honored to be invited to join a small group of Seattle social media - Chris Nishiwaki, Jeff Shuey, Jen (sommelier at The Barking Frog) and Steven Matsumoto - to meet Sullivan's Steakhouse's new social media director, Benson Kelsey.
In talking with Benson and the Sullivan's Seattle staff - most of which came by to say hello throughout the night - it's clear that the steakhouse is different from others. It really feels like a place you can come to for any occasion, from a fancy date to family dinner to casual business meeting to happy hour after work. They even have Swingin at Sully's $5 happy hour on Thursdays, and a $32 three-course deal on Sundays!
I cannot believe I made it to the end of the night. What started out with cocktails ended up with course after course of delicious items from Sullivan's menu, which Benson explained was much more ambitious than your traditional steakhouse fare.
The Knockout - Sullivan's signature cocktail. Summery pineapple yum
Filet Duxelle - filet mignon with wild mushrooms and madeira mushroom sauce
Sides not pictured:
Broccoli with garlic
Lobster mac & cheese
Creamy horseradish mashed potatoes
Salad not pictured: Iceberg lettuce wedge w/crumbled blue cheese & tomato
Creme brulee as big as my head
Key lime pie
Bananas foster bread pudding w/vanilla bean ice cream
I'm stuffed again just thinking about it all!
At the end of the night, Sullivan's Seattle GM Amy Thibert sent us home with these sweet swag bags. Thanks again everyone!
