16HUNDRED is known to be the best upmarket American style steakhouse in Jeddah. This fine dining restaurant not only offers steaks, but also an interesting array of international dishes. They offer the best Canadian and Irish grass fed beef, aged 21 days, which makes their steaks taste earthy, fresh and of course organic. 
16HUNDRED has recently opened its doors for both lunch and brunch, which makes it perfect for lunch breaks and those who are looking to have a unique brunch on the weekends. It is located in the heart of Le Chateau; the restaurant is very welcoming with beautiful bright pink, green and creamy colors. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, you can ask them anything about the food and they will eagerly assist you. 
The lunch menu is a must try if you are in the mood for some exploring. Starting with the sliders, this off the grill item is made especially for burger lovers who want to have it all. It comes in three flavors ranging from prime blue sliders, which are served with Worcestershire BBQ onions and blue cheese; prime cheddar slider, comprised of sharp cheddar, caramelized onion and spicy homemade mustard; and thirdly the highly recommended wagyu beef sliders made of gouda, tomato confit, onion marmalade, house relish and 16HUNDRED’s secret sauce.
The mushroom flat-bread, recommended by the Executive Chef Matt lawson, is perfect for vegetarians who I guarantee will love it. It is made with warm goat cheese, thyme, roasted garlic, fresh mushrooms, and placed on a delightfully crunchy bread. 
The king of all dishes is the steak, which is grilled and seasoned at the diner’s very own 16HUNDRED degree broiler, and hence that’s where the name of the restaurant comes from. There are two kinds of beef at the moment, the Canadian and the Irish. The Canadian comes in two kinds, New York 12 oz and the fillet mignon 1oz. The Irish comes in three types: filet mignon 8 oz, New York 12 oz and my personal favorite the rib eye 12 oz. They are all offered with your choice of sauce from mushroom cream, peppercorn cream, bordelaise, béarnaise, chimboli, homemade BBQ and the mustard sauce. 
There are also mouthwatering main dishes such as the veal meatballs made with kasha and melted spinach. The pan-fried najel made with haricots vert, almonds and beurre blanc. The braised brisket is highly recommended, it is made with natural jus, sweet corn mash and pomme puree. The beef mac and cheese is great for sharing, made with panko breadcrumbs and truffle oil. 
16HUNDRED offers a beautiful variety of upscale American brunch with their own twist. It is only served on the weekend, which makes it a great opportunity for the whole family to meet for a great meal. Starting with the classic homemade buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and a side of berries, this is a tasty and traditional feast. Another great option is the eggs and potato hash made with potato hash fried in glee, two fried eggs, sausages and a side of mix green salad. The southern fried chicken and waffle is a very interesting choice with its mix of breaded fried chicken, granny smith apple stripes placed on a homemade waffle, drizzled with honey. 
For those of you with a sweet tooth, the s’mores French toast is highly recommended, it is made with brioche Texas toast, graham cracker crumble, marshmallow brulee and drizzled with chocolate sauce. There is also the nutella French toast that is made with brioche Texas toast stuffed with nutella and topped with powdered sugar and homemade banana whipped cream. 
The food there is a must try, you will fall in love with everything, starting with the welcome at the door to the food presentation and the quality of the dishes.
