Russell's Offers Both Great Food and Great Service

It’s not very often that we are able to eat at a restaurant like Russell’s. Normally we have to wait for a special occasion or schedule a visit during Restaurant Week.  Before our visit I had never eaten at Russell’s but I’ve always heard good things about their food, service and comical remarks about their choice of decorations. Russell Salvatore’s presence is clearly felt at Russell’s, his over the top design philosophy is in effect in the dining room and bar (though no where near what you see at Salvatore’s) and after checking out coats we were even seated to our table by the man himself.

The exterior of Russell’s is considerably more subtle than the outside of Salvatore’s, it actually looks pretty boring in comparison. That ends when you walk into the lobby and head over to the gorgeous bar with its hip lighting that changes colors and four 103″ Panasonic plasma televisions. The seating arrangement for the restaurant is all over the place, instead of a large seating area there are several smaller dining rooms. Each room has it’s own unique design, our dining room was very dimly lit with some interesting choices of art on the walls. There were no large crystal chandeliers or crystal coated wall art, but we did see bedazzled Buffaloes.

Both Alli and myself didn’t have to think long about what we were going to eat, I knew the minute the reservation was made that I’d be ordering their Bone In Ribeye.  Sure, they have a good selection of Lamb, Seafood Entrees and Pork (on par with most steakhouses) but I’ve been dying for a really good steak since our trip to Buffalo Chophouse in December 2009. We started our meal with a selection of their breads and one of their appetizer specials for the night, warm King Crab dip (pictured above). The dip was absolutely loaded with huge pieces of crab meat, a nice thick layer of bread crumbs, some serious cheese and a surprising amount of spice.
