Steakhouse 55 Restaurant Review: The Disneyland Hotel’s Steakhouse 55 has décor that evokes old Hollywood glamour, but don’t expect over-the-top Disney decorations. Chef Alle Thiam has put together a menu of coastal cuisine emphasizing fresh produce, meats and seafood prepared with hints of international influence. But before ordering up that expensive glass of wine, be sure to ask Thiam or sommelier James Towning to help you choose. One of them will escort you into the venue's private wine cellar for a brief tasting of their by-the-glass selections. Plenty of steakhouse classics are offered on the menu, such as the pistachio-crusted rack of lamb, dry-rubbed bone-in rib-eye, double-cut pork chop, potatoes au gratin, mac ‘n’ cheese, and a wedge salad. One may also opt for a bone-in New York strip steak or a Kurobuta pork porterhouse with roasted apples. Can't decide? The restaurant also offers a three-course prix-fixe menu featuring items such as braised short rib bourguignon. For dessert, we suggest the 24-layer chocolate cake and the root beer-flavored baked Alaska. Steakhouse 55 serves a hearty American-inspired breakfast for those who want to sit and relax before hitting the theme parks.
