I've got a friend coming over for steak tomorrow while the ladies go see sex and the city. So steak seems like the logical counter-move. I'm curious to hear about CH'ers opinions on where they suggest getting a steak.
I'm open to any suggestions, preferrably within the grid of East of Yonge, South of Danforth, North of Eastern, West of Coxwell.
I was going to go for Cumbrae's as a default. But i've had some really good Angus steaks from Dominion's. Is Sterling Silver (Sobey's) any good? Royal Beef? I've been to Lady & Sons, and won't go back.
i would do Cumbreas in your neighbourhood - tried tested and true
or cheese botique (a few minutes west of you and out of your territory)
i've also heard greats things about 'the butcher shoppe' in etobicoke but haven't been able to try yet
You may want to try Costco (of all places). They seem to age their meat properly, and the prices are decent comparatively speaking. They have a package of New York cuts -- 8 per package -- which I've had great BBQ success with; tender and tasty.
The usual issues apply to Costco: be prepared to buy in bulk quantities, membership required, line-ups at the cashiers, etc. etc. (On the bright side: you get your exercise, having to walk for miles to get to what and where you want.)
