So we recently went on our Thursday night date night….we have been working so hard so of course I was in “I deserve it” mode…not a good combination with wine:) And we ended up at a restaurant a client had told me about earlier in the day – Viande Rouge Steakhouse.
Owned by the same owners as 141, which is a wonderful Italian place so I knew we would love it. But I was not really wanting to eat steak or spend a lot on dinner…so we thought we would go and try a few appetizers and call it a night.
When we arrived at Viande Rouge, we were greeted by the nicest and most knowledgeable server…and I knew when he talked about the appetizers and wine list…well, we were eating dinner there for sure.
We began oysters that were very fresh, light and delicious. They came with a wonderful red wine vinegar dipping sauce that complimented them perfectly. Then the most heavenly warm spinach salad that they prepare for you at the table. The dressing was warm and light with the fresh spinach, nuts, cheese tossed in at the end. Honestly they had me at the warm spinach salad.
Then we had steaks – my husband ordered some enormous bone in fillet with crab and lobster on top of it. He could not even talk during dinner it was so good apparently. I had a filet and we ordered asparagus, mushrooms and onions.
All of it was delicious. I tried to only eat half and I ate every bite.
I would highly recommend Viande Rouge in Johns Creek to anyone for a date night.
