Harbour 60

Last night I finally had an occasion to try Harbour 60. Somehow, despite it being considered one of the best steakhouses in the city, I’d never been. I was there for a work thing.

I’ve heard a lot of people say they prefer it to Jacobs, but now having tried it I wouldn’t even put it in the same league. Jacobs remains my champ. Going there later this month. Can’t. Wait.

What we ate:

  • Starters
    • seared Ahi tuna w/ jalapano pepper and pineapple salsa
    • crispy Maryland crab cake w/ corn, lime, avocado & tomato, chipotle aioli, crab salad
    • jumbo tempura shrimp w/ spicy coconut-lime sauce, soy-ginger sauce, scallions
    • spicy buttermilk fried calamari w/ sea salt, lemon aioli
    • caesar salad w/ baked croutons, Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Steaks
    • 32oz tomahawk
    • 14oz filet mignon
    • bone-in New York strip special
  • Sides
    • broccolini w/ remesco sauce, roasted almonds
    • mushrooms w/ white wine, thyme
    • mashed potato
  • Wine (they don’t post their list online, so I’m remembering what little I can)
    • 2012 Meursault Chardonnay
    • A bottle of Zinfandel (I don’t remember which one as I didn’t order it, and was nervous ’cause I don’t really like Zin, but it turned out to be fantastic)
    • A 2013 Catena Zapata Nicolas Bordeaux blend (not nearly as good as I remember.)
    • SomeCalifornia cab (again, no idea which; I deferred to the Zin-orderer)
    • Tawny port for dessert
