Mitchell's Steakhouse - Birmingham
Famed Ohio restaurateur Cameron Mitchell's flagship steakhouse boasts two Columbus locations, plus this outpost in Birmingham, Mich.--which is in the Detroit area.
Mitchell's ups the game right out of the gate, beginning with appetizers. Wild mushroom toast, tempura-fried spicy lobster bites and a chef's selection of charcuterie are some of the best bets. Diners may then select from one of three categories for steaks and chops: butcher cuts (Australian lamb chops, prime New York strip), on the bone (bone-in filet mignon, prime Porterhouse for two), or signature cuts such as New York au poivre or gorgonzola-crusted ribeeye.
They've also made it so that every night at Mitchell's doesn't break the bank. The steakhouse classics menu starts at $49 per person, and three courses brings together the best of Mitchell’s and the latest seasonal tastes. There's also a VIP happy hour, which takes place 4:30-6:30pm Monday through Friday. Guests may choose from a number of discounted food and drink options.
