A classic American restaurant like Final Cut Steak & Seafood might seem like it wouldn’t hold any surprises, but you’d be wrong. Here’s what you need to know about the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant before you go:
1. Three of the steak offerings — the filet mignon, the New York bone-in and the ribeye bone-in — are USDA prime cuts of meat. What does that mean? It’s the highest-quality meat in the United States, with only 2 percent of all cuts getting the prime label.
2. The drinks menu is on an iPad. The list of wines and cocktails is so extensive at the steakhouse that the handy device just makes more sense than passing you a weighty leather-bound tome of the selections.
3. The menu is à la carte. If you like to design your own meal rather than have sides chosen for you, then you’ll be delighted with the endless options on Final Cut’s menu, which lets you pair a variety of sides like king crab legs, grilled asparagus or roasted cauliflower with your meat of choice.
4. It makes its own steak sauce. The luxury Toledo restaurant’s housemade steak sauce is a thing of beauty. While there is a whole list of sauces like Béarnaise, au poivre, blue cheese peppercorn butter and chimichurri to choose from, this classic shines.
5. You don’t have to order steak. The steakhouse isn’t just about the beef. Chilean sea bass, seared salmon and even local free-range chicken are on the menu, if you prefer a lighter meal.
