Went for pre-theater dining and to try out a nearby restaurant in The Heights. Sushi-sashami very fresh especially the $35 chef special. Added several Happy Hour selections such as edamame and spicy cericha tuna that was particularly good. Our waiter Anthony was very attentive and offered good advice on what to add for a full flavored meal. Definately worth a visit- warning- this place is almost always packed, so keep that in mind More

While self-labeled a "Steakhouse" Lorenzo's is more of an everyday type eatery, nothing special but a good spot for "eating" not necessarily "dining". More along the lines of a Chili's or sports bar with a little better food. As expected, the Tex-Mex blends into the menu from the other members of this family owned local chain of restaurants, but with the addition of some "meat" and "fish" entrees. Their flagship dish is their Prime Rib, which is good, but not to the caliber of typical steakhouses. When you consider a 16 oz. Prime Rib at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is only $1 more than Lorenzo's and the quality is miles apart, you might reconsider your next Prime Rib Destination. Stick to their other entrees and you'll be much more pleased. We started off with the Grilled Artichokes, which took me back to The Hitching Post II in Buellton. The were grilled perfectly with just the right amount of smoky flavor; a homerun. We had two, I suggest you get three; we are actually two or three "halves" not 2 or 3 whole artichokes. Also shared the Roasted Beet Salad, and the accommodated us by serving it in two plates without our asking. Salad was fresh with tasty roasted red beets. I had the Pork Carne Asada "La Tana", and it was excellent. Tender pork charrasco style smoother in cheese and Serrano peppers; I asked for additional peppers and was glad I did so. The rice and beans that accompanied the pork wasn't worth the trouble, next time I'll ask for a substitute. My wife had the 8 oz. cut of Prime Rib, about 4 oz. of meat and 4 oz. of fat, which she doesn't care for. Prime Rib is always fatty, but this one was way heavy on the fatty compared to average. Wine list is limited and carries the "X 2-1/2 to 3" markup on the majority of the wines on the list. Nothing notable about the wine list. Remember it's more like a Chili's with lipstick. More
