Haven't had a chance to stop by and dine yet. Of course, they only opened on Saturday. But I like the menu and the concept.

Anyone try it out yet? .

        *shrugs*

        I was referring to the menu being about 90% 'classic prime steakhouse' and 10% 'hmm, I didn't expect that' (Bison Sliders, Sweet Potato Mash, etc.). Also, their kitchen oil is recycled for Biodiesel.

          I can't tell from the website (needs work): are they serving prime? Dry aged?

            You can download a PDF of the menu. Under steaks it says Proudly Serving USDA Prime Wet-Aged beef.

            I'd prefer Dry-Aged, but eh.

              I tied to look at it, but my browser is jacked up or something. I agree, Vince should serve only dry aged. But people won't notice......

                Maybe this direct link will work.

                That a restaurant would 'proudly serve' wet-aged beef is insulting. They're proudly relying on consumer ignorance to beef up the bottom line.

                  Hmm, I just looked at the menu again, and I must have imagined the "wet-aged beef", because it's not on there.

                  It does say Proudly Serving USDA Prime Beef, but there's no comment on the aging process.

                  My bad...

                    No, you're not imagining it. I specifically remember "wet-aged" on there when I looked at the menu last week. I thought it was kind of weird at the time, as that wouldn't normally be a big selling point for beef enthusiasts.

                      It was there.

                      Here's a Google cache of their menu: http://bit.ly/9HdDWb

                      Under "Steaks" it says "Proudly serving USDA Prime, Wet Aged Beef"

                      The old menu didn't have prices though. Wonder if that $23 hamburger takes the top seat in town.

            I would actually consider this place if I was in the mood for an upscale chop-house dinner. I can't say whether the execution is going to be there, but the menu sounds at least as interesting as the other steakhouses in town, if not more so.

              Anyone know the history of the "culinary team" that listed on the menu?

              Those haricots verts is beautiful, and they're comin home to Austin - Austin Texas Baby!

              Hope it's good, but I've learned to have low expectations of any restaurant named after a famous person, unless that person got famous cooking.
