My brother has been to a few business meetings at the Post House. Although it's a steak house, it seems he and his associates always order the lemon chicken because it's supposedly the best lemon chicken in New York. He ordered it again that day and I rarely ever see him order chicken.
It was a really good meal. Due to the kids needing to eat early, we arrived as soon as the restaurant opened at 5:30. We were seated right away and the waitstaff was nice enough to take the family photo.
The atmosphere was understated and pleasant. It wasn't stodgy steakhouse, but it wasn't painfully hip either.
I called my niece a spoiled princess when she asked me to butter her bread for her. The waiter then jokingly said we were both spoiled as he poured my cosmopolitan directly from the shaker right there at the table.
We had a surf 'n' turf amusee bouche. Kevin and I took two of these and I ate the turf and he ate the surf. It was a spicy little tidbit.
I started the official part of my meal with a bowl of very nice gazpacho.
My niece and nephew split a filet and an order of calamari as well as an order of fries. The platter of fries was HUGE. I liked how the waitstaff served the fries directly onto their plates. We all ate what they refused.
I had a deliciously spicy cajun ribeye. It's like they put half the cow on my plate. It was so huge I mooed at it when I saw it.
Lemon sole for Kevin. BOR-ing
Our sides were yummy onion rings, home fries, and fried zucchini. We had some steamed spinach too, but everyone forgot to eat it.
At dessert time Penelope surprised us all by ordering the chocolate souffle. It was a lot of food for a little girl, but she attacked it as well as she could. She was so thrilled with all of the chocolate stuff on her plate. She couldn't finish it despite Aunt Rachel constantly taking bites.
Charles's dish of ice cream was bigger than his head I think.
Check out my dessert. It was a treasure box. What's inside?
Oh look! White and milk chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries.
Kevin rarely goes for the non-chocolate dessert, but he did opt for a lemon tart. He said it lacked something and wasn't really sweet enough.
Dad got his chocolate mousse cake with a birthday candle in it. I think he had a really good day.
I'm still full from all that food.
