I think most steak houses are decorated with the male customer in mind.
The politics of steak? Hey, it's roadfood.com We have lots of very smart people on this site. We're lucky to have them. This one is a real tough post.
Russ - I'm with you on this one. I saw this amazing documentary on Venice; they did solve their below sea level problem for the most part, but is was incredibly expensive. If you go in October to Venice, the start of their winter season, they still have to have these platforms that the city workers put down on top of their sidewalks and everyone walks on them! In September, when we went, we asked what were all these platforms?
Every night, if we returned to our hotel too late, we had to walk through our flooded street to get to the lobby. We actually had to check the time when we were out to dinner. We were blocks away from the water, too! Just trying to change the subject a bit here. I do understand pmrkr2's anger...I just don't happen to agree with the criticism of the firm.
Ruth's steak is pretty good. They're all good. The only one I am not too crazy about is Shula's.
I just find it hard to justify paying so much for steak at any of these places, if not on an expense account. But, it sure is nice when you get invited out as a guest
I love the side dishes...Especially the 1 lb baked potatoes! And, the creamed spinach.
