Earlier this year, we had one of our favorite meals ever at The Alley, a pizzeria and gelato concept from The Betsy Hotel. So when the invite came to check out The Betsy’s other restaurant — LT Steak & Seafood — we didn’t hesitate to RSVP. That swift response was warranted: The steak and seafood at LT is not to be missed.
The restaurant’s name should tell you what to expect: lots of meat and fish plus much more. The menu starts with raw bar selections along with an array of sushi and sashimi, all of which you must order. Spicy Tuna and Yellowtail & Jalapeno were our favorite rolls; they not only looked pretty and colorful, but each bite packed an enormous amount of flavor — this is some fresh AF fish, y’all.
When it came to starters, we couldn’t decide which item was our favorite. Was it the Watermelon & Heirloom Tomato that made us wish all vegetables tasted this good or was it The Betsy Crabcake whose smoked piquillo-paprika sold us at first bite? The easy decision is to get both along with the Prime Steak Tartare — it lives up to its premium name. We’d bottle up that whole grain mustard to take home if we could.
No matter the entree you choose, you’re probably going to need a partner to scarf it down. This is especially true of the succulent 22-oz. Rib Eye Bone In, a gigantic slab of meat that we found ourselves eating for lunch the next day. Our Local Cobia was no slouch either: The sweetness of the accompanying orange slices gave the dish even more depth; nothing was left on the plate. Feel free to add a tasty side or two to your meal — like Green Wilted Spinach — but honestly, your entrees should be more than enough to fill you up.
The same can be said about dessert. Should you still have space in your second stomach, then items like the Guava Torticas de Moron or the Cuban Flan “Havana” will hit the spot and get you ready for bed. Otherwise, save room for your next visit since you’ll definitely be back. That’s the beauty of LT Steak & Seafood: The menu is so varied and large that you won’t stop in just once. This is a restaurant that will have you coming back for more each time.
