Being in such close proximity, I'm sure we'll check it out at some point. And if it sucks, I know where the owner lives, and will proceed to beat the **** out of him.

As long as it's a good cut of meat it is so tender and juicy. All your doing by cooking a steak longer is getting rid of all the juices and flavour. At the very least if you think a steak tastes great when it is well doen or medium well. Honestly do yourself a favor and jsut try a medium or a medium rare just once. You will never go back.

If it's burnt, call it well done.

Also lets avoid Indian/Asian food (I like it but its not a good choice for this occasion). Seafood or a Steakhouse are our normal choices and location isnt a big deal.

So I guess I am looking for your own personal choice of restaurant. I think we went to the Outback last year and it did not live up to past expectations.
There is a great joint near ronny scott's jazz club just off of picidilly circus--little expensive--but well worth it

I like mine medium. Usually put it on the infra-red for about 3-4 minutes per side to sear it, and thus help hold the juices in, and then cook it for another 3-4 minutes per side to get to where it needs to be. I always use tongues, never a fork, and have learned to cook with one hand while a beer is in the other.

check out Yianni's Taverna and Kasbar on whyte. Great grilled meats, seafood and traditional greek appetizers and desserts. Cozy setting with belly dancers on the weekends. Great for dates, families and big parties. Excellent wine list and top notch service.

The wife and I go for nice dinners quite often.
Our favorite by far is the Red Ox Inn. Maybe a little romanic to take your mom to!
Avoid Ric's Grill, the last time we were there it was brutal.
Keg was okay last time we were there, it was lobster fest or something like that.
Unheardof was very good, but a long night and quite expensive.
Hardware Grill was good, but pricey for what you get.

Interesting. Always have mine undercooked. I like my Steak medium, sometimes well done and more often than not I get a rare if that.

Avoid meat altogether, it just isn't good for your stomach in the long run...stick to seafood, fresh water fish and veggies with fruits for deserts.

Seafood contains high concentrations of heavy metals, I would stay away from it.

Most vegetables and fruit are sprayed with pestecides, I never touch them.

And fresh water has all kinds of bacteria growing in it, totally gross.

Accent (just off whyte ave and calgary trail, next door to chili's) is great.

Eaten there a couple times and to me a wine list is not overly important, but a nice selection of draft is VERY important.

The Filet Mignon was really good and myself and my fiancee got out for about $120 and that was for app, entree, desert, and probably 4 beer each.

Great food, great service, and smaller cozy environment.
