Daniel’s is the only major Seattle steakhouse to serve USDA Prime steaks exclusively and I had a hankering for steak so what better way to cure it than with a big Porterhouse? Joining me for this Dot Com steak feast were Nate Whitehill, Josh Mullineaux and Matt Blancarte of Unique Blog Designs, Neil Patel and Jordan Pearce, who recommended the place to us on Twitter. Make a Twitter recommendation and get invited to dinner. Pretty good deal, huh?
Daniel’s has three locations in the Seattle area. We went to the one at Bellevue Place because it was only ten minutes away from the Mercer Island house. Located on the 21st floor of Bellevue Place, Daniel’s offers a very nice view of Seattle. As good as the view is, it doesn’t match the steaks. Daniel’s is one of the best steakhouse I’ve ever been to. Broiled at over 1800 degrees, each steak is flash-seared to lock in the full flavor.
We ordered an assortment of appetizers and oysters on the half shelve to start. For the main course, I went with the 24oz Porterhouse cooked medium rare. It easiest matched the Porterhouse of Gotham Steakhouse back in Vancouver. Neil, who had the 9oz Filet Mignon, couldn’t believe I had room left for the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee after (he’s never met Stephen Fung).
With tips and drinks, dinner for six came to $630, making Daniel’s one of the more expensive steakhouse I’ve been too. However, I would go again in a heartbeat. Today, the Dot Com Lifestyle continues with Dot Com Pho and Dot Com go karts! See you there!
