Before I delve into the deliciousness that was St. Elmo Steak House, I should probably introduce you guys to someone pretty special to me.
This is Andrew. He's a pretty awesome guy, and we like to go on dates and things. One of the best things about Andrew is that he's in love with food as much as I am. We get pretty excited when we eat well. We get into food comas together and probably eat more than we should when we go out. While we don't get to eat out too often because of school, we always try to take the opportunity to eat good, delicious, and worthwhile meals.
So naturally we just had to go out during Indy's Devour Downtown promotion. And of course we went all out and picked St. Elmo Steak House for an indulgent steak night date night.
Disclaimer: I totally forgot my nice camera and so my pictures of the meal were taken with my iPhone! Not the best quality, but I felt like I still had to share what I ate because it was just so delicious!
We both started out with the famous St. Elmo's shrimp cocktail. St. Elmo's is known for their incredibly spicy cocktail sauce, and boy it was definitely spicy. The fresh horseradish opened up my sinuses and even made my eyes water a little. Can I also say this is my first time ever eating shrimp cocktail?! I know. I'm a disgrace.
For the entree, both Andrew and I got the 6 oz. filet mignon with green beans and mashed potatoes. For their Devour Downtown menu, St. Elmo's offers a filet mignon, salmon, or half roasted chicken. Before I came to dinner, I was debating if I should get a salmon or chicken just so there would be more variety in our meal. But in the end, I said no. Why? Because I'm at a freaking steakhouse! How can I not get a steak? And honestly, I'm glad I stuck with my decision. The meat was incredibly tender and not too salty, so you could actually taste the beef. 6 oz. was a perfect size for my small belly too!
The final course to our dinner was of course, dessert. I got the cheesecake with fresh raspberry sauce, while Andrew got the creme brulee. The cheesecake was perfectly creamy and the raspberry sauce added the tang that cut the richness of the cheesecake. Oh yeah, I got a coffee with cream and sugar to go along with the meal. Because, why not. Treat. Yo. Self.
All in all, I completely recommend St. Elmo Steak House. It was a quality restaurant with amazing service and even more amazing food. I can definitely see why it's such a treasure in Indianapolis. And now I'm in a food coma, please excuse me while I lie in bed for the next 8 hours in absolute food bliss.
