After a great time at the hockey game and saying farewell to The Joe, it was time to go back out for dinner. I took an Uber and ended up being dropped off near The Fisher Building since the directions to the restaurant were a bit confusing. It was fine because I actually wanted to see this building.
I loved the architecture and design of The Guardian Building so much that this was the other Art Deco style building I wanted to check out.
I walked around a bit before getting another Uber to hopefully drop me off at the correct location this time.
We got it right this time and I arrived at Grey Ghost, a modern hip restaurant serving steaks, beer, and craft cocktails. It’s located between the historic Brush Park and Midtown neighborhoods.
I took a seat at the bar and was immediately greeted by Robbie who was very hospitable.
The cocktails looked good and I started off with the Repeat Offender made with gin, Cocchi Americano, aloe, lime, simple syrup, and orange blossom. Delicious!
From the “Cured” section of the menu, I tried the Fried Bologna.
A waffle topped with slices of fried bologna, sharp cheddar cheese sauce, and jalapeno jam – oh my goodness. This was a meal in itself and pretty heavy, but quite tasty. I had to try it.
It was time for a real dinner, so I ordered the Dry Aged Rib Eye with a side of French Fries.
The Rib Eye was topped with peppercorn butter and chives. I wasn’t impressed with this dry aged steak at all. I was expecting more flavor and it wasn’t very tender.
The French Fries served with Fancy Sauce were excellent though. Nice and crispy. They had a late-night special that included their cheeseburger, fries, a beer, and a shot. The burger looked really good, so I would try that next time.
Before leaving, I had one more drink. The Master of None had gin, elderflower, celery, fenugreek, lime, sparkling, and apple. Fenugreek is an herb similar to clover.
Although I wasn’t crazy about my steak, everything else was good. Cocktails were great. Service was incredible thanks to the awesome bartender, Robbie. I’d come back.
