    Followup to steak request: result

    We ate at CUT, at The Venetian.

    Those were the best damn steaks I've ever had, in my life. They are slow cooked to temp, then seared at 1200* for the finish.

    We chose an appetizer of prime filet mignon “carpaccio,” celery hearts, truffle hollandaise, and white truffles from Alba, Italy. Holy heck. That was unbelievably savory. Taste, texture, look, everything.

    Salad, we chose a Pink Lady and Fuji apple salad, with walnuts, dates, and cheese. Just beautiful.

    I chose a dry aged 8oz American Wagyu New York strip from Snake River Farms, Mrs chose a dry aged American Wagyu 9oz ribeye. Both steaks were unbelievably succulent. I ate with my eyes closed to concentrate my senses on taste. I cut small pieces so that there would be more of them, and it would take longer.

    For sides, we chose mac & cheese and sauteed baby spinach. The mac & cheese was good, but not as good as a well made crack & cheese. The spinach was excellent. But who cares about the sides.

    Expensive, and worth it. You might not want to go there once a week, or once a month, but you should go there once.

    Mosca ...

    It sounds like you and the wife had a great meal. Hopefully you had a great bottle of wine too.

    I only order steak at a restaurant when I'm out of town away from my grill. I'd rather spend the extra money on an exquisite cut of meat and reverse sear it myself.😎


      Mrs doesn't drink, and I'm a beer guy. I had an outstanding German Pilsner that I can't remember the name of.

      Dining out is entertainment as much as it is the food. If the restaurant staff do their job, the value goes up considerably. Most casino steakhouse dinners are either comped or expense accounted, we were neither which affected the value equation for us. It's kind of like having a hospital visit with no insurance.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
