Greystone, San Diego, CA

Greystone Restaurant Review

: For meat, seafood and well-crafted libations in the Gaslamp, Greystone is the place to rendezvous, given its sizeable martinis, 48-ounce porterhouse steaks for two, Maine lobsters and white-tablecloth setting. A creative, eclectic menu includes starters of lamb meatballs, wild boar sausage or grilled octopus. Steaks are USDA Prime or Angus, aged 21 days, with sauces from béarnaise and bordelaise to homemade ketchup. Portions tend to be huge. Enjoy a Kobe-style flat-iron accented with melted Maytag blue cheese or order up a filet with mushroom-Cabernet sauce. Another favorite is the hefty elk chop in a blackberry reduction. Creamy spinach, bacon-and-fig Brussels sprouts, and truffle fries are befitting sides. Guests may peruse the wine list as well.
