Alexander's Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: This Bay Area import offers a luxurious dining experience in a modern setting. The dining room features an open kitchen fronted by shimmering silver tiles, a peaked ceiling and hockey-puck-shaped chandeliers. Silky chilled foie gras appears in a take on kaya toast with pandan gel and soy egg yolk emulsion. Little Gem and romaine salad riffs on the Caesar with pungency from anchovy miso dressing and creative squid ink baguette croutons. Myriad steaks, some dry-aged for 28 days, cook on the wood grill. Where Alexander's excels is with Wagyu, which it sources from four Japanese prefectures. Miyazaki A5 oozes fat, sports a judicious sear and comes with six salts. Sides include mac ‘n’ cheese with udon, caramelized Mornay and truffle panko. If you’re feeling flush, Alexander's offers a seasonal eight-course tasting menu for $175, with beverage pairings for an additional $75. Order citrus or aromatic drinks, or submit to omakase. Wine is also a viable option thanks to a bound 14-page menu. Dessert choices include a creative soufflé inspired by the classic flavors of peanut butter and jelly.
