Gretchen Kurtz recently visited Butcher's Bistro, where a butcher's counter up-front displays the cut of the day you may later see on your plate.

Some people simply can't appreciate the flavor of a quality steak. My wife thought she was one of those, until she realized that she was just eating it burnt and dried out. She went from well done to medium rare in just a few short years. No sauces need apply!

To each their own, but remember you're pouring $.50 in sauce on a $40 steak. If I need sauce for a $40 steak, I'm stabbing the cooks with my fork. Before I leave.
