Allow me to set the scene. It is 1966 and Sinatra just wailed the last notes of My Kind of Town. Count Basie and his Orchestra is playing clean up as the Chairman jogs off the stage at the Copa Room of the Sands Hotel in Vegas. More than likely Sinatra stumbles to the bar and slugs back a shot of Jack Daniels and lights a cigarette. The crowd disperses.
Chances are one of your distant relatives was there to witness the historic moment, and they follow the crowd out the door. Some head to the casino to spend your inheritance, while others filter through the buffet to take advantage of the 99-cent all-you-can-eat prime rib bar.
Not sure about you, but after all the celery I have taken in so far this year, that is a scene that has been repeating in my brain. With all due respect to my vegan friends there are just times when nothing will quite satisfy like a giant slab of beef. And this is about when I heard about the Friday night Q de Cheval‘s new Friday night prime rib buffet.
You remember the fairly new restaurant cheffed by the Rex Turner at the Hotel Intercontinental in Addison. This is the same place that has the lavish Sunday brunches and the haute Texas cuisine all week long.
The big beef night isn’t 99-cents, but what is anymore? It is $19.99 and that is a very sweet deal. Especially when saddled with crab corn chowder and heart baked potatoes.
So munch away on your platter of beef and do not feel bad when as you tackle your second slab as a happy tune dances in your mind. Luck be a lady tonight.
