I can usually hhit 550-600 on my charcoal grill, even a cast iron skillet on a gas stove isn't that bad if you do it right. The local whole foods sells prime-aged. If I make my own it will 95% as good for $10-15 and it will take me 15 minutes. When I makes sushi, I end spending nearly as much as if I went to the restaurant and it take me 2 hours +....lately I'll just sashimi slice some fish, cut up some avacado, make cucumber salad and buy seaweed salad, serve it with some dips, but it not as cool as a boat...

Been to Ruth's Chris, Ember's, Arthur's and Outback. Ember's and Arthur's are just right for my budget. Don't like Outback too much. One day will make it to Luger's and Morten's.

Does Outback really have any place in this discussion? I thought they were more popular for their bloomin onions than their steaks.

Depends where you live and what you like. If you like the super-lean filet, and live in a market with limited choices, Outback is pretty damn good. If you live in NYC or Chicago, and like aged, marbled stuff, Outback is probably a joke to you. Actually, the baked potato is the best thing on their menu.

It's not authentic Australian, but I don't think they're trying to be.

Probably pretty lean. They're pretty active animals.

"It's not authentic Australian, but I don't think they're trying to be." Fosters: Australian for beer. That sure sounds like they are.

There is a restaurant in Puerto Rico that serves game, depending on availability. They serve anything from deer to bear.
