In Montecito for my daughter's high school graduation. Going to miss hitting Lucky's on the regular -- a great old-school steakhouse. The owner made his scratch from Lucky Brand jeans, hence the name. This is their "special" NY Strip, 14 oz prime Angus and just throw a bunch of Roquefort and demiglace on it. Tastes much better than it looks.

I wasn't sure if this was before or after you ate it

I acknowledge my furtive photography may not have portrayed the subject in the best light. Place is hella bougie and not conducive to like full insta food shot staging.

Have never had one there that wasn't cooked properly to order, so that's something.

Was going to mention to @Lizard23 that they are opening a NY location in Soho soon -- 224 Lafayette St. Will be interesting to see if they can compete in the big show?

Hawksmoor seems to be doing rather well in "the big show" as a transplant and I am a fan of theirs.

I have entered the life stage where I eat in the same 10 places or so all of the time and rarely try new restaurants. I probably miss out on some really great meals 10% of the time but prevent disappoint the other 90%. Also - being a regular is always a big plus. But for the spot you mention, I will make an exception :)

(the above mentioned math is totally made up but i bet its within a standard deviation of accurate in one direction or the other).

Back on track! Ex-dairy ribeye but this time from Devon, UK. It was very good, maybe not as much as the Spanish stuff but for the price it's perfect.

Paired with some lovely 2017 Barolo.

I've been using stainless steel for searing lately, does a great job on the sear but ultimately doesn't get as hot so carry-over cooking is less than what you get with a cast iron.

For the sides, I made some green salad, blanched and lightly sauteed asparagus + Bordelaise sauce and the usual chips. The steak was so good the sauce wasn't at all needed.

This is Rocco’s in the Newtown Suburbs. Try to eat outside for a bit more ambiance although the building is cool and historic. The chef is off on Mondays so avoid then!

If you get up to New Hope, which let’s face it, is more scenic and artsy, Odette’s has vastly improved their menu. They’re right on the river, it’s a real scene, and during the spring summer open to the air. Before it was sort of mediocre especially for the price, but now I’d vouch for it because they have a new GM who came from Rocco’s and they installed new ovens, etc to achieve the char.

Nice, yes I've been to Rocco's, but haven't had steak there. Actually have spent quite a bit of time in Newtown as my folks used to spend summers in the area. Haven't been to Odette's. Typically would spend more time on Lambertville side rather than New Hope. Maybe will try it next time!
