My son has just moved into his teens, and for us (for me especially), it means the end of kiddie parties for him!
And so last Monday, we celebrated his 13th birthday differently — it is a milestone, anyway! 🙂 And since he wanted steak, we took the family to Smith Butcher and Grill Room for a proper steak feast!
This restaurant practices nose-to-tail butchery, cookery and specializes in steaks from all over the world.
The interiors are “urban industrial chic” — quite stylish and modern, yet still very cozy.
One interesting thing about Smith Butcher and Grill Room is that it has its own butchery room. That’s it at the back of the photo. You can see for yourself the cutting, preparing and dry aging of the meat here.
You can see the different kinds of meat displayed in its fresh and raw form.
It’s not all steak and meat here however… These lovely starters set the celebratory mood for us.
And then for the main event.
But first, we were asked to choose our kind of steak knife!
And then this. This is what I call Smith Butcher and Grill Room’s Around The World Steak! The chef chose a big platter for us and filled it with different kinds of steak from all over the world.
From left to right: 45-day dry-aged U.S. Beef Ribeye, Japanese Matsusaka, French Tenderloin, Irish Sirloin, and U.S. Snake River Farm Wagyu.
My two favorites? The well-marbled Japanese Matsusaka and Ribeye, of course. It was cooked medium rare to medium, seasoned well and had the right amount of fat and tenderness!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my not so little big boy! I still can’t believe I now have a teenager…!
