Happy Valentine's Day!


I'm noticing a pattern. Dad rarely requests steak dinners, but request it he did the other night. So we found ourselves at Outback Steakhouse in Sausalito just a few days short of Valentine's Day. I've blogged Outback previously related to Valentine's Day. Maybe it's the red color?

Bread and Butter

After you order, hot fresh bread appears magically at your table with lots of butter to slather on it.

Caesar Salad

I had a decent Caesar Salad to start my meal, Dad declined his salad course, stating he just wanted to get to the steak!

Small sirloin

Dad ate every bit of his 7 oz Outback Special steak. In accordance with the times, the restaurant seems to have added this smaller size since the last visit, and priced it the same as the previously bigger size. However, this version was perfect for Dad's 88 year old appetite.

Alaskan King Crab

I have a weakness for their Alaskan King Crab offering. Simple and tasty, I also enjoyed it all. Although a chain, it provides a nice change of pace and allows Dad to get a sized well steak while I can enjoy a luxury seafood.

Tonight I'm taking Dad, Toran & Aurelia to Round Table Pizza while the kid's parents get some romantic Valentine's moments. The company will be fun and high spirited I'm sure!

Have you taken your dad to Boca in Novato? The hanger steak is to die for.
Plus, duck-fat french fries. Mm.
