Make a Weekend Reservation at St. Anselm
If you love grilled meats and other great ingredients, you need to grab a table at St. Anselm. This restaurant celebrates the beauty in the simple dishes, pairing them with an excellent drinks list to great affect. Chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley is a genius when it comes to preparing steaks and chops. From the butcher’s steak served with garlic butter to the pork porterhouse served with apricot chutney, she knows that less is more when it comes to great cuts of meat.
Look beyond the steakhouse fare, though, and you’ll find a veritable cornucopia of simple yet creative dishes. This creativity takes the form of pan-fried mashed potatoes, oysters with smoked herb butter, and whole mackerel in lime peppercorn sauce. Even the little things are treated with special attention. Buttermilk biscuits are served with delicious pimento cheese, and the shrimp is served with cucumber, avocado, Thai basil, and the stunning addition of cuttlefish. As you can tell, this restaurant is all about letting the ingredients shine. What’s more, the beverage selection is sizable, yet carefully-curated, featuring classic cocktails, wine on tap, and a variety of interesting craft beers on draft and in bottles and cans.
