On to the main event. Like any classic steakhouse the dinner menu is a la carte. My dining companion ordered the filet mignon and I the free range pork chop (do we need to review how much I love pork again?). We also ordered a side dish of sauteed spinach to share. Bot the filet and the pork had a beautiful crust on the outside, they were huge pieces of meat and looked so delicious. The plates were simple, with just a garnish of tomato and parsley. The spinach was a great side, it wasn't rich and didn't steal the spotlight from the steak or chop.
How do you finish off a meal like that? With peppermint ice of course! We decided to just take a peak at the dessert menu and when we saw that they had peppermint ice cream, we thought what a nice sweet treat to share at the end of our meal. It arrived in a traditional glass parfait style dish and was had two giant scoops of pink ice cream with red and green bits of peppermint candies in it! It was so much fun and really hit the spot, the coolness of the ice cream and the refreshing feel of the mint was perfect to soothe our stomachs after a big meal.
So, hop a train, head to New Brunswick, take a nice stroll to Steakhouse 85 and get ready to enjoy classic steakhouse atmosphere and food. The service can be a little slow, but if you are with someone you like, don't worry about it, just chat and drink and relax!
