We just got back from dinner at the New Orleans Steak House. This restaurant is located on Rt 15 in Jefferson, NJ in Morris County. It’s a really good restaurant which we have been to once before. The atmosphere has a French Quarter feel to it and the staff is friendly and casual.
Our server for today was Anna. We requested her this time because of her excellent service from the last time we had her. She always greets us with a smile and is always attentive and efficient during the entire experience. We never feel rushed because she lets us take our time ordering until we are ready to order. This makes for a great experience that is relaxed and never rushed.
For appetizers, we ordered the Fried Calamari and the Homemade Fried Mozzarella Wedges. Both choices were excellent. The calamari was delicious and had a delicate coating of breadcrumbs. The mozzarella wedges were definitely not like the usual ones that restaurants tend to serve. They are hearty sized with a rich taste to them. Both are served with red sauce for dipping
Our entrees came with either a cup of lobster bisque soup or a mixed salad. We chose the salad. We requested some gorgonzola cheese crumbles which really added to the salads rich taste. The blue cheese dressing had nice chunks of rich blue cheese. I never let any of those chunks get away from my fork as I poke through the dressing to get every single one.
For our entrees we chose the King Cut New York strip steak topped with onion crisps. This was the 16 ounce he-man size. As you already know, our appetites are large. We ordered the steak medium rare and that is exactly how it came – right on target. It had a nice chargrilled exterior and was moist and juicy on the inside. As our sides, we chose a baked potato and the vegetable of the day.
They have a good selection of desserts if you can actually eat one after all that food. But we did hear people say that they were yummy.
Needless to say, we had a great experience today at the new Orleans Steak house. Anna is definitely top notch and an asset to their team. The manager is also friendly and chatted with us, as well about his home country of France. He noticed us looking at our pictures of Portugal that we had made into a hard cover photo book through Apple. If we are up in that neck of the woods again, we will definitely go there.
