Dine-In Vancouver 2016 (Sarlo's)

$80 Prime Rib prix fixe


Objective:

1. Been slacking, I wanted to have a bit more intense cooking session.

2. Would my friends would trust me enough to shell out $80?

3. The idea of leaving hungry after a "prix fixe" meal disgusts me.

4. Everybody says "Dine-Out" sucks, can I make "Dine-In" any better?

Looks amazing! How much lead-up prep time do you need for something like this?

I think you need bigger plates for the main course

LOL I remember when people thought $80 was too much for this meal...

Consider that dine out is $20-40 and you get maybe...20% of what we ate. At least 48oz of prime rib to go too.

And that prime rib was one of the most tender pieces of meat I've ever had. I was cutting it with a butter knife.

Fool! No plate can hold prime rib of this magnitude!

For real though I've been telling Sarlo he needs to buy better looking dinnerware.

I had an HDD crash, lost a bunch of photos and person files and got really discouraged from posting for a while.
I'll be back on insta pretty soon I think.

Prime rib was slathered in a crust marinade.
Salt, pepper, butter, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh rosemary, fresh thyme and some deep fried shallots. All blizted together into a paste.


And yeah, I know I need better plates and lighting for photos.
I need lots of stuff still. hahaha

Thank you guys for all your kind comments.
It's nice being able to spoil my friends once in a while.
and really, it's Ronin that makes my food look good.



As for people wanting in,
I'm still sorta scratching my head on how to approach this legally,
Not in it to make a boatload of $$$, I just want to protect myself from liabilities (safety concerns, people getting sick, lawsuit or somebody getting burned by the deepfryer).


I did my first private booking with an RS member over the holidays.
It went well I think (don't know his username, but maybe he'll chime in).
Unlike other underground restaurants, my meals aren't fancy, romantic or nicely plated.
It's just not my style currently.

I'm leaning towards something more akin to a cooking space/school.
Where people "come spend an evening and cook with me together".
I'd do the shopping and do the heavy lifting and guide us through it together.
I'll put some thought into how to approach it.


Maybe you guys have suggestions?

I think I floated around 225, directly on a half-size sheet pan.
Was a bit concerned about the bottom heat, but it seems to have turned out ok.

Hey Sarlo,

That was me

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience; learning new things and being able to have a good chat and food is definitely a worthy experience. I definitely prefer this type of experience than the typical ones. Definitely recommended for any of you guys who like to cook or learn.

Highlight of the night was definitely my wife getting super pissed drunk LOL
