While the subdued lighting at Rathbun Steak makes for a pleasant setting. It makes grabbing a shot of the food difficult, if not impossible, during the winter (the patio isn’t really an option). But, quite frankly, with food this good… who cares? I don’t need to take a shot of the steak. The memory of it’s silken texture and the taste of rich buttery beef lives on in our memory. Both of our steaks were spectacularly good. There is no doubting the high quality of the dry aged beef. The distinctively rich, full flavor and meltingly tender flesh are unmistakable. It would be a crime to over-cook beef of this quality. So, as you would expect, they were cooked to perfection.
In addition to the steaks, here are some of the dishes we’ve enjoyed:
(We’ve never had a bad dish… just varying levels of great to fabulous)
Perfectly cooked, crisp on the outside and tender moist meat on the inside. The drizzle of honey flavored with citrus and mustard was added with a delicate touch… not overpowering the lobster.
Wagyu Burger with grilled onions
This burger is as close to perfection in a burger as we’ve ever found. This is definitely our current favorite. It now sits on top of our list of the best burgers in Atlanta. (In our minds at least, until we update the list itself. We’ll be updating & revising this list soon.)
Jalapeno Creamed Corn
I didn’t know that creamed corn could be this good. This is seriously addictive. Super rich… oozing creamy buttery flavor and a good dose of spice to combat the richness. Next to the steaks and sweet potatoes, our favorite thing on the menu.
Caramelized sweet potatoes layered with cream, butter, and cheese. These are low calorie… right? I wish. They are To-Die-For good! I mean…really good. YUM! These might be the best sweet potatoes on the planet. Did I mention… these were good? I can’t think of a word to define their level of delicious perfection.
I was going to go on to say good things about the french fries, onion rings, creamed spinach and mushrooms. And, a baked alaska (with one of the most perfect meringues I’ve ever tasted) that I believe is no longer on the menu. But, honestly, I can’t get the sweet potatoes out of my mind. So, I’ll just end here. Actually, I’m glad there’s bad lighting… I’ll get a shot eventually. We’ll just have to keep coming back to try and try again. I’m up to the challenge!
