St. Elmo Steak House

This summer brought a very important family event: my cousin Julia’s wedding! The entire family headed to Indianapolis for the festivities, making it a fun reunion filled with dozens of aunts, uncles and cousins.

The night before the ceremony, Greg and I dined at St. Elmo Steak House, the most renowned steak house in Indianapolis. General feeling is if you’re in Indianapolis you have to eat there. And now that we’ve dined there too, I have to agree!

While we were waiting for our table, Greg ordered The Signature Elmo Cola. It’s a glass-bottled Coca-Cola with the restaurant’s exclusive infusion made with Maker’s Mark Bourbon, imported Italian Luxardo maraschino cherries and Madagascar vanilla beans served with St. Elmo’s famous drunken cherries.

Despite the restaurant’s fanfare, Greg thought it tasted like any other whiskey and coke.

For a starter, we each had the Lobster Bisque and it was so delicious I had to force myself to stop eating it to save room for my meal!

Greg had that evening’s special, the bone-in aged New York strip with a side of redskin mashed potatoes. I kept stealing bites of his potatoes!

I had an 8 oz. Filet Mignon with a loaded baked potato.

Our steak was absolutely divine, and quite possibly the best steak I’ve ever had. We hardly needed a knife!

The bonus of traveling outside New York City is it seems like the entire world goes on sale. Our meal, including drinks, tax and tip, was less than $150. It was quite possibly the best $150 we’ve ever spent on food. When you go to Indianapolis, you absolutely have to eat at St. Elmo Steak House! You can find out more information, and make a reservation, here.

The next day was the big day, Julia’s wedding day!

After the church ceremony we headed to the reception inside a former theater.
