Where’s The Beef?

I hope no one is looking

No, really. Where is it? 

This is what was left after a 33 ounce Tomahawk Steak was placed in front of us at St. Anselm.  To me, this is the best steak in Brooklyn, and maybe New York City too.

In addition to the must have potatoes and cauliflower, Daniel and I clearly devoured this piece of meat.

Since I am the one in the family that is responsible for polishing off the bones, this one was all mine, and good to the last bite.

Burn! Baby, Burn!

I managed to save a few calories by talking my husband out of the creamed spinach, and opting for the cauliflower.

The Kitchen Show Is Great Too!

The gigantic steaks for two persons take around 45 minutes to prepare, and we had a great seat at the chef’s counter watching the staff at St. Anselm make kitchen magic while we waited. It’s amazing to watch these pros spit out (not the best term to use) 55 covers before 6:30PM.

St. Anselm has been voted the best steak in the “BEST OF” New York Magazine, for their 15 dollar Hangar Steak, and this one is just as good, if not better.

St. Anselm charges by the ounce for this meaty meal. $1.90 per ounce for the pleasure of devouring the bone-in Tomahawk. Well worth the price.

I need 2 Desserts Like A Hole In My Head

Daniel, who doesn’t count calories, always orders dessert and this night he ordered two. He couldn’t resist the chocolate mousse and we discovered that blue cheese makes for some extraordinary ice cream.

Especially, after they roll it in toasted panko and then put 1/2 pound of thick sliced and candied bacon as garnish, then drizzle with dark chocolate. WOW!

I’ve mentioned this before. There are very few places to which we return to dine, since there are so many great places in NY and Brooklyn. This was our 5th time at St. Anselm.
