Roy's My Prix Fixe Mondays Giveaway

Back by popular demand is Roy's My Prix Fixe Mondays! Every Monday for the rest of the year, diners can choose any appetizer plus any entree for $29.95*. It's an amazing value, considering that appetizers average $12 and entrées $29. 

Roy's invited us in for dinner to check out the promo, and we jumped at the chance. Roy's has long been a favorite restaurant of ours; we've celebrated countless special occasions there and attended several wine dinners.

The Baltimore location has been open for 12 years now and it's still going strong. There's a new chef in the kitchen, Matt Ellis, who worked as a sous chef at Roy's Tampa location before coming to Charm City. In addition to the classic Roy's menu of Hawaiian-inspired dishes like the misoyaki butterfish and macadamia-crusted mahi mahi, Chef Ellis has added dishes with a Baltimore twist, like the "Crab Pretzel." Imagining a typical soft pretzel glopped with cream-cheesy crab dip, we were quite surprised to see that Ellis' version was closer to a lobster roll. The pretzel roll-style split top bun was toasted and buttered and filled with crab in a creamy cheese sauce.

It was outrageously good, and the generous portion is perfect for sharing. The lobster potstickers were nice as well, with a uniformly-browned top crust and a miso butter sauce standing in for the typical soy and sesame dip.

We also had the misoyaki butterfish, the rich fish plated gorgeously with swirls of three sauces flavored with wasabi, chile oil, and misoyaki. The pork tenderloin entrée was fork tender and served with a heap of smashed potatoes and a spicy gravy, continuing Roy's record of impressing us with their meat dishes as well as their fish. We also tried dessert, which is not included in the My Prix Fixe Monday special, but who can pass up Roy's famous melting hot chocolate soufflé? We also tasted one of the pastry chef's latest creations, a caramel pretzel bread pudding with honey graham ice cream. It was lighter than the typical bread pudding, had a nice crunch from the pretzel topping, and we really loved the ice cream.
