We had one evening free to go out to dinner on our recent trip to St. Pete's beach area. After a little research on Trip Advisor & Yelp our choice was clear. 1200 Chophouse did not disappoint! We arrived around 6pm because we had read there was not a lot of seating. Perfect timing because by the time we got our salads the place was full to capacity. Our server, as it turned out, was from the same area of MA as we are...he was exceptional but unfortunately I cannot remember his name...my bad. He was perfectly attentive and checking in on us at all the right moments. We ordered the special, based on his recommendation which was a Rib Eye steak (2lbs !!) for two. The salad was included...and by far one of the best starter salads we have ever had. The bread...perfection. Fresh, hot and it had a somewhat salty and sweet flavor. We had seconds it was that good. We ordered our steak medium rare...at first the center was still a bit cool so our waiter took it back to cook a bit more. When we got it back it was perfect...no big deal. I had the red skin mashed potatoes and my husband had the truffle fries. Beware of extremely large portions...but sure beats not having enough. When asked if we wanted dessert...we said we were too full but our wonderful waiter came back with a small mason type jar of what he referred to as salted Carmel cream.... Pure heaven! Light, sweet and salty and just the right finish to a perfect meal. The next day at our condo pool, we asked some new folks we had just met about restaurants in the area and they said.....1200 Chophouse!!! We agreed. It am hungry just thinking about it and will definitely return if we find ourselves in this area again..... Wish you would open up in Boston!!
