Yelp Denver's Secret Supper at LoHi Steakbar
Last week Yelp Denver extended the luxuries of a little TLC that Labor Day brings by providing a hearty meal for 20 lucky Denver Yelpers. LoHi Steakbar: a local eatery boasting delectable salads and steaks greeted Secret Supper guests with the perfect compliment to a sunny day – the ever-so refreshing Moscow Mule. In fact, Dale Z really appreciated the copper mug cocktails, "which, whether one is about to enjoy fast food or fine dining, is a pretty good way to start a meal."
Moving onto the fantastic fare, rounds of their decadent Blue Cheese Fondue dip was passed as a shared appetizers enjoyed by all. The rich cheese created a perfect combo with their handmade potato chips. Kate K reminisces about the "awesome" blue cheese fondue: "We make fondue on occasion at home, and it never occurred to me to try with blue cheese. And the potato chips were fantastic - I'm a huge fan of home made chips. I could have eaten a whole plate (or 2) by myself," while Danielle S "almost elbowed Cheryl to get more dip."
Up next were the entree choices of Flatiron with Frites, a Roasted 1/2 Chicken with goat cheese grits, and the Big Salad Salad with beets and other fresh ingredients. Adorned with a shallot steak sauce, it seemed the Steak took home the popular vote for the night. Not "generally a fan of sauce on a steak," VIcki P enjoyed the "light and not sweet shallot sauce. My steak was delicious and perfectly cooked and was served with about a pound of crispy, yummy fries." Meanwhile, Gena G opted for the 1/2 Chicken, and although the "chicken was juicy and well seasoned, the star of my main was the side dish, the goat cheese grits. They were creamy and almost risotto-like and I had a hard time not eating the whole lot."
To end the night on a sweet note, Cheesecake with Amerena Cherries OR A Scoop of Gourmet Sorbet from Little Man Ice Cream was offered. Shaun S "thought that the cheesecake dessert was fantastic. It was creamy as opposed to thick like traditional New York cheesecake, and as a Manhattan Junkie (drink) I always love an excuse to an extra Amerena (or Luxardo) cherry!"
