I checked out St. Paul’s newest steak house last night, The Strip Club, where I got the obvious order: A NY Strip:
They offer 8 different toppers. I went with the blue cheese option since cheese makes everything better. It didn’t really need the cheese, but that’s not to say that I didn’t appreciate it.
Given a choice, I’d recommend sitting on the 2nd floor facing the front of the building. You’ll get a great view of the St. Paul Skyline and/or sunset depending on when you’re there. You may even get to see someone use the secret door.
I also tried a starter of salami, bread, honey, and (of course) cheese. The honey was some of the best honey I’ve ever tasted, providing a thick sweet kick for the salami and bread.
The pear concoction looked pretty tasty:
Jeremy & Ang sat at their usual table (or what will soon be their usual table).
And Aaron shot me.
So, where is this place? It’s at the corner of Maria & 6th in St. Paul. Very easy to find. If you’re heading East on I-94, take the Mounds Blvd left-land exit off 94, taking you up the hill. That exit turns into 6th, so all you have to do is head 2 more blocks East. It’s on the corner.
The service couldn’t have been more friendly.
Give it a shot.
While tonight was their official opening, Moe has a great review from a friends & family night over the weekend. Considering that I dined with almost a dozen bloggers, I’m sure more takes and photos from the evening will pop up over the next day or two.
