Perry's Steakhouse & Grille Restaurant Review

: One way to stand out in a setting such as The Shops at La Cantera, where chains of every stripe abound, is to up the atmospheric ante and develop a couple of good gimmicks. Perry’s is a steakhouse chain out of Houston, and it seems to have found its formula in a posh bar open to views and offering inventive drinks that can be investigated in sampler form, and by a menu that proffers the likes of Perry’s "famous pork chop," carved tableside into more parts than you thought a chop could yield. Be prepared to share --- and to be impressed; apart from a side of feckless applesauce, this is truly an experience. Nor is beef to be ignored; the 22-ounce bone-in rib-eye is also carved tableside. Very pricey candidates for accompanying wines litter the wine list, but there are also notable selections at lower prices; a Malbec from Argentina’s Colomé comes to mind. Butternut squash purée and sherried mushrooms are fine accompaniments, while appetizers such as crumb-laden/crabby asparagus appear to be trying too hard. Dessert should not be necessary, and, in any case, a bananas Foster failed in the flame department.
