Holy Moly Woolley’s!

If Captain Marvel was in the mood for steaks, because super hero’s love red meat (maybe that’s made up), I think he would want to go somewhere that is serving only the finest steaks and that place that I am thinking of just had its grand re-opening over the weekend and didn’t disappoint.

Woolley’s Kitchen & Bar (formerly Woolley’s Steakhouse) just happens to be the place I would send Captain Marvel to and I would encourage him to bring his fellow super hero buddies with him. Woolley’s went through an extensive remodel over the summer and fall and the new look is wonderful looking. Everything has been updated, it looks a lot more modern and sleeker, the bar area has a more open layout and they even reserved a spot for nightly music to be played while dining. A huge improvement from the previous décor. 

But, while the restaurant was completely remodeled, they kept the same quality and attention to detail with regards to their menu. My wife and I absolutely love Woolley’s and it’s my favorite spot to get a filet. Every time I order their filet, it’s made perfectly – super tender, juicy and full of flavor in every last bite. And, this visit during their re-opening celebration was no different.  

So, I ordered just that, the 10 oz. Filet with a side of loaded hash browns. Why would anyone order hash browns with such an amazing steak? When Chef Frank Loprete is the master mind behind the menu, you don’t second guess, you just order and enjoy. They were the type of hash browns that I would prepare at home over and over again - loaded with bleu cheese, bacon and scallions. Simple, yet fantastic!
My wife went for their Red-Eye Ribeye with a side of grilled glazed carrots. Again, another steak that you could cut with a fork from how tender their steaks always are. It was super juicy and full of flavor just like my filet. The carrots were glazed and grilled with rosemary and olive oil and enjoyable as well.
And, to wash all of this delicious food down, we enjoyed a bottle of Kendall-Jackson’s Vintner’s Reserve Red Blend out of California’s wine country. I’m just starting to enjoy good wine’s and gain a better understanding of just how complex they can be, and this wine paired perfectly with our meal. 

Woolley’s is definitely my go-to place when my wife and I want well prepared steaks served to us. The entire team at Woolley’s has done an exceptional job on the remodel and their menu continues to impress. But, again, it’s to be expected by such a culinary super hero. The next time you’re in the mood for a high-quality meal, look no further than Woolley’s Kitchen & Bar and bring your super hero sized appetite with you!
