Saucy, salacious, Striphouse the venerable B.R. Guest restaurant group spot, offers Restaurant Week for lunch only in the downstairs dining room. A well thought out and great tasting menu is offered though watch the libation count as it does add up. Bread from TomCat Bakery was ohh so good. A gazpacho shooter from the chef was nice. Watermelon gazpacho to start with crisp zucchini and pieces of shrimp is so tasty and refreshing. The 8oz strip was a fine cut of meat with a small band of fat, perfectly cooked and finished with sea salt. The peach melba served with chocolate sauce as requested was a lovely finish. Bordeaux wine from their reserve added depth to a super meal.
