Steak & Eggs Soufflé Tower

This weekend my LoVe and I headed to Queens for the Grand Opening of Moe’s Sneaker Spot at the Jamaica Colosseum Mall. I haven’t been there since my High School years and it was a trip for me to see how much things have changed, yet stayed the same. When I do the math I realize it’d been easily about 20 years. Gosh do I feel old! The event featured a performance by Pusha-T and Brookly’s own F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S who offered up a few of his hits including”Breathe” and the most appropriate for the occasion “Throw it in the Bag.” After bobbin’ our heads to sets by DJ Bobby Trends & DJ FatFingaz we were ready to hit our next destination.

As you can imagine, after the Grand Opening we were famished and quite frankly, anxious to toast a few great things that happened over the weekend. We headed over to Astoria and grabbed a table at S Prime Steakhouse a new steakhouse in Astoria on 36th Street near the Studio Square Beer Garden, which in itself is an incredible space.

Upon entering, we were quickly transported to a dimly lit, beautiful dining space and met by the Chef Joel Reiss. He welcomed us and we took our seats when I realized just a few tables down from us was Idris Elba who we are fans of.  We assumed he must’ve been filming a movie as there is a studio down the block and the restaurant frequents various actors and studio execs. BTW, dying to see the 3rd season of Luther, but we can’t find it!!!! Hello BBC! Can you please put it On Demand! If you haven’t seen this show it’s a MUST SEE. It’s a psychological crime drama series with fascinating, yet disturbing plot lines. It’s the one time in my life I fell in love with a brilliant sociopath. Oh, Alice Morgan… I heart you and your dangerously alluring ways!  I digress…

We, in our typical form, ordered enough food to feed a family of 4. Our waiter Nathan chuckled but gladly gave in to our requests which included the 48oz Porterhouse Steak, the Cajun Rib eye, Tomato Gazpacho, Mozzarella Salad, Stuffed Baked Potato, Asparagus, Key Lime Pie, wine and a few of their cocktails. The steaks were simply divine! And that Key Lime Pie… the best I have ever had!

Hours later with our full bellies in tow, we were ready to leave when the Chef came over and encouraged us to make Steak & Eggs for breakfast the next morning. Sure enough that is exactly what I did. You know what was even better than the dinner at S Prime? Being able to make a delicious brunch for my wonderful LoVe! They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If his reaction to my Steak & Eggs Soufflé Tower made from leftover steak was any indication, I’d say he’s REALLY in LOVE! YESSS!!!!

Below are the details on my creation:
