Would you like some salt with your steak?

Our first night in Burlington, Vermont was my husband’s birthday. We had plans to go to L’Amante the next night and my husband really wanted a steak so we headed to EB Strong’s Prime Steak House on Church Street. When we walked into the restaurant, we witnessed an unruly, intoxicated customer tell his waitress that she deserved a $5 tip on a $100 plus tab. As we were waiting to be seated, the customer punched my husband in the arm as he exited. The host apologized to us as he brought us to our table. We placed our drink order and dinner order and before our food started to arrive the waitress brought over two different kinds of salt for the table, which I found interesting because the whole meal, in my opinion, lacked salt. We started with Fried Calamari with a roasted tomato and cilantro dipping sauce. I have never had calamari sticks before. The dish needed salt but I did enjoy the roasted tomato dipping sauce. My favorite part of the meal was my salad – The Classic Chopped, avocado, petit poi, crispy onion, crispy poached egg and white balsamic. While the salad lacked salt, the textures were very enjoyable. We both had the Filet Mignon, with roasted garlic mashed potato, crispy onion, demi glace. The steak was perfectly cooked but we both had to sprinkle our steaks with salt from the table.
