After the glowing reviews of a colleague I ate at Bobby Van’s on 230 Park. It’s considered to be one of the better NYC steakhouses (there are 4 in the chain, most in NYC).

I got a bone-in ribeye and some mushrooms.

I asked for a 145°F internal temperature and the decrepit waiter looked at me like I had three heads. “What does that mean?” I said medium rare…

The mushrooms provided some lubrication.

Not a religious experience, I’ll try the Old Homestead tomorrow hopefully.
