Young's Restaurant Review: While upscale steakhouses are in abundance in New Orleans, in outlying Slidell, Young’s is almost all by itself in this genre. Not content to subscribe to fads or trendy cuisine, Young’s has stayed true to its basic steak-and-seafood menu since 1969, and why mess with success? The traditional, upscale surroundings in the well-kept brick building make this a comfortable place to dine. The bartender mixes a mean, icy martini to get you ready. Start your meal with garlicky escargots or traditional shrimp rémoulade before tucking into a good filet or rib-eye. Also rewarding are the domestic lamb chops and a double-bone pork chop. When all the cylinders are firing in the kitchen, both can hold their own compared with similar fare served at other area steak restaurants. Char-grilled shrimp and a tasty sauté of mushrooms are other dependable options. A decent selection of hearty red wines complements the food, as does a respectable pecan pie for dessert.
