Kres Chophouse on Urbanspoon A little pricey, but delicious and worth it. 

We ate here before seeing Venus in Fur at Mad Cow Theatre

It was a good production at a consistently good theatre … and I don’t just say that because the lead actress spends most of the play strutting about in stockings and a corset …

Not that that hurts …

Dinner started with the K.R.E.S. cocktail, Vodka, Raspberries, Elderflower, Islay, Citrus, Soda. ($9)


Very tasty and just what I needed after a long week of work.

Lobster bisque ($8) to start, and good enough that I was halfway finished with mine before I remembered to take a picture.


  I opted for the elk loin ($35) … actually the first time I’ve had elk.


The jus wasn’t necessary, as the elk was tender, juicy, and flavorful.  Not a bit gamy and more tender than most steaks.  I was very pleased with the choice.

My companion had the filet ($34).


It was bigger than it looks in the picture.

For sides we had Brussels sprouts ($8) and vegetables ($7).



To my taste, the vegetables were very good and the sprouts were okay (maybe a bit underseasoned).

All in all, a really good dinner and I’d return.
