Bob’s Steak and Chop House

Opening just in time for the legislative power brokers, this tony Dallas-based chain faces plenty of competition nearby but obviously feels secure. The interior is wood paneled and clubby, even preppy, while the beef menu encompasses roast duck and smoked salmon on toast points. A crab cake with a punchy mustard sauce was staid but solid, as was the surf and turf, featuring a filet and an Australian loster tail. Our favorite, though, was the generous rack of tiny lamb chops (also from Down Under). For folks who don’t fret that their meat comes from miles away (and are uninterested in the provenance of the cartoonish whole glazed carrot that accomapnies each entrée), this classic steakhouse is just the ticket.
