Locals and visitors have been looking forward to the seasonal menu tweak and recharge of the French Steakhouse, under the expert direction of executive chef George Hoek. The good news reached us this week. The master has finally revealed his grand retouch, resulting in a packed dining-room every night of the week.
Among appetizers Chef George now lists his popular classics, Escargot a la Pernod and Prosciutto Ham & Melon next to his novel selections, Authentic Aruba Keeshi Yena and Tropical Crab Cakes with pineapple and mango salsa.
The classic menu of the French Steak House received a pepped-up twist, also evident in the salad section featuring a Honey Glazed Salmon Salad and a Hearts of Palm with Roasted Pepper salad.
The menu now boasts more seafood, from fresh fish to the totally sinful and amazingly decadent Caribbean Stuffed Shrimp with Crabmeat and Bacon, which became an instant hit. The tequila and sweet chili glaze, lends the Jumbo shrimp a pure taste of heaven!
The famous South American Churrasco steak, a signature preparation, now shares the limelight with juicy USDA beef specialties such as NY Sirloin and Filet Mignon.
And Chef George definitely took the boring out of chicken with his Jerk Curried Skewers and Lemon Herb Broilers.
Open 7 days a week from 5:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. the French Steakhouse is blessed with the nicest staff and a delightfully renovated dinning room with sparkling China, crisp linen, an interesting bread basket, colossal desserts and live jazz on piano with Eddy Samson.
Hungry patrons will appreciate the Ambassador’s 5-couse menu featuring the run for the menu highlights for just $34.95 per person.
