Melt In Your Mouth Sides

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting family at McKendrick’s Steakhouse here in Atlanta for a nice lunch. And while my steak was decent, the service was great and the two sides I ordered were outstanding. Order these, please.

Salad Starter
Crisp Romaine, Italian Vinaigrette, Tomatoes, Red Onions, Parmesan Cheese, Croutons
*Sounds ordinary? They shred the lettuce and the dressing is light but well incorporated into the entire salad. One of my biggest recent food pet peeves is those who seperate the salad ingredients on top of the lettuce; it may be pretty, but it’s harder to eat and the flavors don’t combine as well.

Side Star
Wild Mushroom Risotto
*Sounds fancy? Oh but please trust me. It’s creamy wile maintaining the integrity of the mushrooms, and it pairs great with just about anything. In fact, if I were to go back, I would just ask for a salad and risotto.

McKendrick’s is consistently ranked as one of the best steakhouses in the Atlanta area by the AJC and Zagat’s, among others. Definitely more of a special occasion place considering the prices.
