Eat your meat like you mean it

One of the most memorable meals I ever had was at a steak restaurant in Chicago in the lead up to the Millennial Celebrations in 2000.

We’d recently shifted to NZ but were back to show our babies to the grandparents, so I got the night off and headed downtown to meet up with two IT consultants I’d worked with.

A very large waiter who looked rather like a steak himself, complete with Marine bootcamp haircut, arrived at our table with a large metal platter on his shoulder, upon which lay samples of the steaks we could choose that night. He explained each one. In detail.

Then we feasted, but I have to say that as much as I enjoyed that steak, as much as I’ve ever enjoyed any steak, I’ll never enjoy one as much as this little guy does.

Of course there are other types of eating as well, and the kitty clip put me in mind of this great, but under appreciated band, who cover the bases both on band name and song title.

  1. ‘Vlado’s’ in Melbourne was rated No 2 steak house in the world during the eighties. (No 1, I think, may have been yours.) It was remarkably inexpensive and indescribably excellent.
