My husband, Aaron, and I have been going to the same steakhouse for special occasions since we began dating over 16 years ago. I was nervous to continue to go once I started the gluten-free diet, but even though they didn’t have a gluten-free menu until recently, the chefs have always taken great care of my needs.
Our most recent visit to The Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse was just last week. We were celebrating our thirteenth wedding anniversary, so a special dinner was in order. I don’t know what made me ask if they had a printed gluten-free menu, as I normally order the same thing and make sure to let the staff know about my needs, so I was pleasantly surprised when I was presented with a printed gluten-free menu!
I normally order the Filet Mignon (medium rare) and Chop Salad (not on the gluten-free menu…modified to be gluten-free by changing the dressing) for the main course, though I have had salmon and Chilean Sea Bass before, too. I love the steak so much that I decided to stick with it this time. Once we placed our order, we were served a small appetizer plate with a Lollipop Lamb Chop on top of Sauteed Spinach and Garlic Mashed Potatoes drizzled with a Balsamic Reduction, I believe.
Out of this world! I would love to see this on the menu permanently!
After we finished our meals, we ordered dessert. The Flourless Chocolate Cake is one of the best desserts I have ever had, though the Crème Brulee is right up there, too. I can’t wait to go back for my birthday, Valentine’s day, Mother’s Day, etc.
The Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse has four locations in Columbus, three in Cleveland and one in Akron, Pittsburgh, Sarasota, Daytona Beach, Buffalo and Detroit (Birmingham).
