I’ve got food on the brain today. I’ve been on hold with Per Se for the last 30 minutes, in a desperate attempt to get a dinner reservation when Mr. Beez and I travel up to NYC for my friend Jen’s wedding in May. If I don’t get one this time, I can try again in August. Being on hold is STRESSFUL.
Mr. Beez’ birthday is coming up in May. For his birthday dinner he would like a “ridiculous steak.” We’re talking some ridiculous massive porterhouse, with a ridiculous massive baked potato, and a ridiculous massive plate of broccoli. Morton’s is always a favorite of his, so that is a distinct possibility. I have been to Morton’s once, and was not amazed by it. It is a big fancy dinner, but I feel like I could have had a much more delicious meal for half the price at any number of Pittsburgh’s unique local restaurants. (Note: we DO plan to visit Peter Luger during one of our NYC trips this summer.)
So, peanut gallery, what is your favorite place for a gluttonous steak in Pittsburgh?
or anywhere else yinz can think of. I would rather we go to a locally owned place, but appears that the steakhouse scene is overwhelmingly chains.
Where do you think we should dine for a ridiculous enormous steak for Mr. Beez’ birthday?
