Red Cow specializes in steak frites, and they’re pretty committed. Start with some charcuterie (we like the short rib croquettes), and then select one of seven steak cuts paired with sauces like a red wine reduction or horseradish cream. Each steak comes with crispy rosemary-infused fries and garlic aioli. If you don’t want a steak, we’re not sure what you’re doing here, but the burger is a good runner-up.
