citizen kane’s Steak House By: Amy De La Hunt Photog raphy: Car men Troesser

One of the most-delicious steak experiences in the re g i o n i s t u c k e d a w a y o ff t h e b e a t e n p a t h i n K i r k w o o d . I t ’s a d e s t i n a t i o n f o r s p e c i a l o c c a s i o n s , a n d e v e r y order is respected and treasured—whether it comes from the youngest member of the party or the oldest. That type of service feels very fitting for a restaurant located in a turn-of-the-century Victorian home. The menu is filled with expertly crafted dishes that draw customers’ attention to the steak at the center of the plate. Although they are traditional, not a single one is boring—even the creamed spinach is popular enough to generate recipe requests. And the steak, of course, is exquisite. If the point of the libation is to emphasize the s t e a k , t h e n t h e w i n e l i s t a t C i t i z e n K a n e ’s h i t s the mark. The same is true for the long list of whiskeys, bourbons, single-malt Scotches and Scotch-whiskey blends, which serve as reminder that concluding the meal is just as important at a fine steakhouse as starting it. And that is where the chocolate-chip cheesecake enters the picture.
