I had to be dragged to what I considered a "hotel restaurant", as my experience dictates they are rarely good, just convenient. Stetson's proved to be the exceptional rare violation of my rule.
Now in the service industry, I am quite unsatisfied with the service at most places near tourist areas. But Stetson's caters to a small but loyal crowd of city dwellers, supplemented primarily by conventioneers from the nearby Hyatt Regency. Our server was well versed in presentation, courtesy and knowledge of the menu.
We started with Maryland crab cakes and the taste buds awoke. Classic iceberg lettuce was complimented with Maytag bleu cheese (if you never have had this you have not experienced true blue), Cape Cod Sea Scallops with a spring pea and fennel salad, with meyer lemon flavor abounding. The second entree was fork-ready steak accompanied by a double baked potato so rich that neither made it to my plate, save a scant taste. The food was too good to be truly shared even with a loved one.
Room for dessert - you have got to be kidding!
The prices are steep, but not unreasonable for a steakhouse of this quality. Next time you can't get reservations at Jordan's or are told of a wait at Ditka's, try this place. You will wonder what took you so long.
