agree on steaks up to a point, because japanese wagyu exceeds expectations

Until you see the dinner ticket, and it takes most of your paycheck.  Then you say "goddamn that was good, but was it that good".
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Lentils, but they start with a low bar.

beer, 90% of the time.

YES!

Also steak
:horrorsurprise: :surprised: :sdeek:
you need a new steak guy apparently

No, not a steak guy, it's like that everywhere. Whether I'm making one myself or having one at the Capital Grille, a steak done fantastically only meets expectations, it's not the same experience you get from other expensive entrees that are memorably great. Even while eating a steak, before it's over the experience really becomes just finishing what you paid for.

What was the expectation-setting steak that ruined all other steaks for you?

I think it's that I can't even remember what the best steak I've had is outside of when I grilled one for myself a few weeks ago. I'll take stunted's word for it that wagyu is great and I'll try one at some point.

Y'all are acting like I said steak was gross.

I only eat steak a handful of times a year and it's pretty much always better than I expect.

Restaurant steak usually isn't worth the price. I often order scallops when fiancé wants a steak.
