Mike had enjoyed enough amazing dinners at Lawry's The Prime Rib that he would wax nostalgia about it each and every time a discussion of steak or prime rib came up. So we decided to celebrate our anniversary at the Lawry's in Addison outside of Dallas. I really enjoyed the Premier Salad; Mike doesn't recommend the Caesar Salad because the dressing is not house-made. The Prime Rib that makes this place famous is carved table-side from a trolley that cruises around the dining area. You have to get it rare or medium rare, or else don't bother because other people will make fun of you (at least, I will).
Strangely, the Yorkshire Pudding was the most memorable part because I don't often get to have it, and this one was the perfect blend of chewy, crispy, and moist. However, as much as I enjoyed our meal, I don't think it is still the destination dining that it once was if only because there is comparable cuisine for much less money. Good but not great.
