To kick things off I’ve decided to make a list of all of the restaurants I’ve eaten at by location, in alphabetical order, including the number of times I’ve eaten there. This list is from December 2004 through August 12, 2011…not sure, but I think I might have been able to buy my own cattle ranch if I were to actually tally this bill up.
Anaheim, CA: Morton’s (1x)
Atlanta: Morton’s (1x)
Charleston, SC: Oak Steakhouse (1x), Halls Chophouse (1x), Grill 225 (1x)
Chicago: Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse (1x), Capital Grill (2x), Morton’s (2x), Gibsons (1x), Keefer’s (1x), The Palm (1x)
Cincinnati: Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse (1x)
Indianapolis: St. Elmo Steak House (1x)
Michigan: Capital Grill – Troy (1x), Morton’s – Southfield (1x), The Chop House – Ann Arbor (1x)
New York City: Peter Luger Steakhouse (1x), Capital Grill (1x), Primehouse (1x), Keens Steakhouse (1x), BLT Steak (1x)
San Francisco: Boboquivari’s The Steak (1x), Morton’s (1x)
Grand Total: 25 steaks and growing (outward).
Just writing this list has brought back some truly amazing memories that range from my honeymoon, to some great birthdays, to random meals, and has made me very, very hungry!
Moving forward each meal I eat will get it’s own post with photos and details of the meal – from appetizers to desserts – of course I’ll always give the steak the most detailed attention. I have also decided that there are certain specifics about a steak meal that should always be accounted for: 1: the cut, 2.) the aging, 3.) the temperature, 4.) the wine, 5.) the sides, 6.) the company. I will always make sure that these items are accounted for first and foremost….I will also keep a running tally of total steaks eaten at the bottom of each post. I’m freaking starving.
