Some place in Boston. I don't remember the name. It was 3 numbers. Like 789, or something like that. I think it was their address. They had an amazing peppercorn filet mignon. Very noisy restaraunt, though.

Some chain steakhouses are okay. I don't normally like chains, but Ruth's Chris and Outback both have very good steaks. Hell, I'll even go to Texas Roadhouse for their "Roadkill" once or twice a year.

Maybe. That sounds very familiar. It's been several years, so I can't say for sure. If the place is louder than shit, that's probably it.

I've always wanted to try Peter Lugar's. I've come close a few times. I don't know if I'll like it much. They seem to be famous for steaks that are not lean at all. Eating fat just isn't my thing. But I'll try it someday with an open mind.

Peter Luger in the BK, no comparison. Morton's is great but different.

Unless you are willing to eat a well marbled steak, you will never know how good a steak can actually be.

I know that's the rule, but it just doesn't work for me. I can cook the leanest piece of meat in the market, and end up leaving 10% of it on my plate because it's touching fat. That's why I like game so much. Same thing with bacon. You should see how I eat bacon. A pathetic site, for sure.

Luger's dry ages right?  Some people are put off by that.  I think I'd like it but I've never actually had a truly aged steak.  I guess the closest I've had would be, uh, old.  "Hey, what's this at the bottom of the drawer?  Oooo, cook it or throw it out?  Well, I did pay for it....."

Dry Aging is where it's at, wet aging is a cheap alternative.

Scott, you need to eat lean meat more often and splurge with something fatty as a cheat day.

Are you afraid of the texture, sight, or calories and saturated fat?

FAt is delicious, on a good steak or pork belly, there are few things that will give you more pleasure when eating.

If you do a search on foodtv, alton did an episode about dry aging beef, you can do it your fridge pretty simply... I like a good steak house, and I've been to some where the steaks are absolutely perfect, both in quality and temperature, but I'm kind of put off by the whole idea. To me a restaurant experience should involve things that you can't easily do at home, and $60 steak a la carte with $12 for half a potato on the side seems like a rip when you think about what that money buys in a good sushi restaurant.

sloppy,

I hear what you are saying, but finding Prime Beef is not easy and searing that bitch on a 1200 F salamader broiler and then letting it cook at a lower temp, is not something one can replicate at home.

mullett, they do serve only marbled cuts, no solo filet but you basically go there for the porterhouse so you'd get to taste the filet. i think the dry aging helps break down a lot of the tissue, including fat and creates texture that is certainly not typical of a "fatty" steak.

Ummmm... It's fuckin' gross? Seriously, it has nothing to do with health concerns. I guess it's probably the texture more than anything. It's either chewy or squishy. Both of which are gross. I appreciate what fat can do for the flavor of food. I'll cook bacon just to use the leftover grease in a sauce. I just can't stand eating the fat itself. I'm the same way with chicken. People talk about the less-lean parts tasting the best. For some reason, the lean breast is what tastes best to me.
