My wife and I are health nuts, but special occasions allow for special exceptions. We haven't been to any kind of All-You-Can-Eat place in probably five years, and there's a reason for it. We find buffets to be stocked with unhealthy food, manned by indifferent service, at prices that are rarely even fair. Red & Green Steakhouse, we were told, was exactly an exception to that norm.\r
First of all, the place is super deluxe inside, and I'm not kidding. I can't guess what it costs to dec out an interior space of this size, but no expense seems spared. It's comfortable, clean and very relaxing. For an anniversary, we're off to a pretty good start here.\r
We dug in to the salad bar and it was great because it's not just designed to load you up on carbs. There are veggies, fruits, all kinds of salads, and enough other things for those of us watching what we eat (even at an all-you-can-eat) that we didn't have to choose between leaving hungry or hating ourselves; we got the third option.\r
Then came the gauchos. Every few minutes a server would come by and offer us something familiar, or something we'd never even heard of, but almost all of it was exceptional. Modestly seasoned, not overcooked and always interesting. I won't say bad things about it just because I don't like ANY food wrapped in bacon, but I'm sure it was tasty too, just wasn't ready to go quite that far.\r
The bill came, the price was right, and our dinner was done. I'd say this could be my every-anniversary thing, but I suspect we'll be back long before then.
Pros: cost, taste, waterfall in the front, wine selection
Cons: wrong side of town for me
