Yesterday we had a fancy date night at Malio’s Prime Steakhouse. I bought a LivingSocial deal so we got $100 worth of food for $50. We’ve been to Malio’s a few times before – we always had some sort of deal when we’ve gone since it is a lot pricier than most places we normally dine.
We were seated at a small table with a window view overlooking the Kennedy Bridge crossing over the Hillsborough River. While deciding what to order, we were served a loaf of bread – it was warm and soft inside, and the crunchy outside was rubbed generously with garlic salt. We could have filled up on just the bread.
My steak was perfectly seasoned. I ordered it medium – it didn’t really have much pink left in the center so it was probably closer to medium-well. But it was so flavorful and incredibly moist – I could cut it with just a fork. Lance ordered his prime rib rare, so it was a center cut. When brought to the table, the server poured au jus over the meat so it was very juicy.
The vegetables were good – but the potatoes were some of the best I’ve ever had. The skins of the potatoes were extra crispy. Glad we didn’t order any appetizers because we had no room left after cleaning our plates.
