This week on Let’s Go, South Florida host Arlene Borenstein visits Avalon Steak & Seafood in Delray Beach and gets the lowdown on how to cook the perfect steak.
High expectations is what the staff at Avalon Steak and Seafood in Delray Beach want you to have.
“When the food drops, you say wow,” said Antonello Paganuzzi, director of operations.
Avalon’s 30-day dry aged, 36 ounce Tomahawk prime ribeye served on a cutting board — with a bone marrow canoe — will dominate any table and dazzle it with a pristine cook, herbs and enough sex appeal for any meat lover.
“Generally people don’t really know the taste of dry age, but it’s a great process and makes the meat nice and tender,” said executive chef Greg Rubin.
Considering Avalon’s coastal location and seaside vibe on Atlantic Avenue’s restaurant row, their seafood menu is not a lesser loved child.
The restaurant’s Angry Lobster appetizer is a 1.25 pound serving of Maine lobster served with a Sriracha and ginger sauce ($35). And their bone-in “Tuna Ribeye” ($105) brings nearly two pounds of fresh tuna to the table to share.
“We wanted to have an offering that wasn’t pigeonholed into just a steakhouse, but a seafood and steakhouse,” said Paganuzzi. “All of our dishes are very well executed. They’ve all been put under a microscope to make sure they’re perfect before they go out.”
Watch the full interview and dish tasting with Paganuzzi and host Arlene Borenstein in this week’s episode of Let’s Go, South Florida. We go behind the scenes, inside the Avalon kitchen, where executive chef Greg Rubin shows us how to make a juicy bone-in rib eye at home.
