Highlights From the Rogue 99 ~ Dal Rae

9:59 AM PDT on April 4, 2018

The original Dal Rae opened in 1951. It moved to its current location in 1958, and has been chugging along with a basically unchanged menu ever since then. This is a very fun (and very expensive) restaurant that doesn’t seem to know how cool it is — the bar serves lemon drops and gives you a buzzer while you wait for your table, which aren’t usually signifiers of swank — and it’s probably better for it. No pretentiousness here. This is technically a steakhouse, so sure, get steak (in particular, the famous pepper steak), but more importantly, order things that are created tableside. The Caesar salad for two is a work of art created before your very eyes, and it might well be the very best one you’ll have in your life. For dessert, order Cherries Jubilee or Bananas Foster, because setting fruit on fire is always a fun time. Request a table in the old dining room for the full experience. —KS
