After a very successful trip to Paris that was only two short, I can’t stop my craving for Steak Frites and/or Steak au Poivre. Last night, I was lucky enough to go  to Daniel’s Broiler on Lake Union which is one of the best steak houses in Seattle with an incredibly tender and flavorful fillet. In a quest to fulfill my desire, I ordered my tenderloin with a peppercorn brandy sauce and with a side or fries. The steak was delicious and so were the fries, but the peppercorn sauce wasn’t cream-based 😦 and it just wasn’t the same (despite costing 3x what it costs in Paris).

Next week I’m in NY and hopefully I’ll be able to find a place that matches my expectations. If any city in the U.S. can come through, it is NY.
