Inspired by Ray's Prime Steak House and Seafood

It has been a very long time since my last post, but after eating at Ray's Prime Steak House and Seafood last night, I was inspired to write about our wonderful experience. Ray's is located on Winthrop, which is just off Camp Bowie near the intersection of Bryant Irvin, in the space formerly occupied by Aventino's.

When I walked into the dining room, I loved the warm, yet chic, atmosphere. It felt like an upscale steak house, yet with a modern twist. Caramel colored leather covered each dining room chair and the soft, yet not dark light, perfectly matched the volume of the music. I preferred the decor at Ray's over other steak houses in town such as Silver Fox. *Footnote: Our server formerly worked at Silver Fox for years.

To start our meal, we tried the Baked Crab Stuffed Portobello Mushroom ($7), which was wonderful and a bargain at only $7. The appetizer was one portobello mushroom topped with a generous portion of delicious crab meat. I liked this appetizer better than most crab cakes and would easily order it again.

Next, we enjoyed a salad. I had the Caesar ($5) and FWJoey had the Chopped ($6) which consisted of tomato, red onion, bacon, tobacco onions, and creamy blue cheese. Both salads were above average and both dressing were winners.

I forgot to mention that prior to receiving our appetizer and salads, we were served warm, delicious sourdough bread with whipped butter. It was hard to stop eating it.

After being so impressed with the food we had tried thus far, I was excited to try our entrees. I ordered the Sea Sea Scallops served atop corn risotto ($22) and could not have been happier. The entree came with four huge scallops perfectly blackened sitting on top of a heavenly portion of corn risotto. I loved the presentation, the flavor, the price, everything! FWJoey and ARMichael seemed equally pleased with their 6oz filet mignons ($22) which were served with garlic-rosemary whipped potatoes. Both steaks were cooked to the temperature requested.

We went to Ray's on a Tuesday night (Fat Tuesday) and it was not very busy. Hopefully, the word will spread about how delicious the food is and how reasonable the prices are (you pay more for a 6 oz filet at Lucille's) and the traffic will pick up. I highly recommend giving Ray's a try.
