Just before Christmas, one of the teams at work went for Christmas lunch at Entrecote Parisian Steakhouse and Bar in Alfred Place, Melbourne. The menu is, as you can imagine, very French. However, the team member who organised the lunch is a regular at Entrecote, and recommended the Steak Frites, so that is what we all had.
The Steak Frites ($44.90) comprises a grilled Hopkins River porterhouse steak cooked as you like it (I had it medium rare), served with frites (French fries), a butter and herb sauce, and a leaf salad with radish, walnuts and vinaigrette.
The steak looked huge, but everyone managed to polish theirs off without any difficulty. The highlight for me was the lovely butter and herb sauce, which was delicate yet tangy and spicy at the same time.
Entrecote is not the place for a cheap and cheerful catchup, but if you are looking for something a little special, and like your food with a little French flair, Entrecote may be the place for you.
