I dine at Grub Steak, a lot. A friend (to remain nameless) and I have boozy lunches at least once a month. No kidding, Chris, the manager sees us coming and opens a bottle of Sauv Blanc and has it ready on our table.
I ALWAYS get the salad bar. In my mind, no one can craft a salad for me better than me. And it is always dressed with their herb vinaigrette dressing. I posted the recipe a while back, you can grab it HERE. But for some reason, I never dined on one of the days they have their “add on” specials for the salad bar. I just so happened to stumble upon the Ribs and Salad day when we were photographing for the upcoming issue. Then I came to find out they have a Taco and Salad day.
On Wednesdays, you can grab complimentary barbecue bones of prime rib with Park City’s best soup, salad and sandwich bar. The salad bar boasts dozens of fresh fruits and vegetables for you to craft your own monstrosity (included is warm bacon dressing for the spinach and an array of salad sides like potato salad and bean salad). Then, hop on over to the chafing dish, raise that lid and take in the succulent prime rib bones seasoned with their house barbecue sauce. Don’t adjust your screens, they are that juicy.
On Fridays, Grub Steak adds the taco bar as the complementary addition to the salad bar. House-shredded beef tacos are made your way, because after all, it is a salad bar.
Not really a DIY diner? No problem. Grub Steak has a robust menu of salads, fish, steaks, chicken and other premium lunch menu items to whet your appetite. Check out their New York Steak sandwich, certified Angus beef, sautéed onions, mushrooms and chipotle mayonnaise on baguette or their Baja grilled mahi fish tacos in soft corn tortilla shells, we suggest enjoying them with the coleslaw. All sandwiches, burgers and dinner menu items include a choice of french fries, cajun fries, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, a cup of soup, or garden greens. Add a trip to the soup and salad bar for only $4 (a steal!).
Now, I cannot stress this enough. SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT! Your eyes will be much bigger than your stomach, but you will regret it if you don’t have a serving of their famous bread pudding. I can’t tell you what’s in it, but I can tell you it’s positively magical and the perfect way to end a boozy or not so boozy lunch at Grub Steak.
Probably you know me, maybe you don’t. But if you see two ladies slunk down in a darkened booth with at least one bottle of wine on the table during lunch, you know where I am. I’m at Grub Steak.
