Sparks: The awakening

Sparks (Jan 2010)
210 E 46th St
New York, NY 10017

SPare meal: - Prime sirloin (rare) - Perhaps one of the most enjoyable steaks I’ve ever had. Perfect crispness on the outside, with an equally perfect rare inside for me. The flavor was inspired. Ideal marbling with fat gently distributed throughout the cut, providing no overly chewy mouthfuls, and just enough fat in each bite to enhance the flavor.

Crab: - Prime sirloin (rare) - Outstanding flavor. Perfectly cooked. Juicy/crispy on the outside.

Editor's note: This dinner began, with little pomp, the monthly occasion. Two gentlemen simply wanted to gather, swap news, imbibe spirits, and laugh heartily. That it should be over planks of meat seemed appropriate. And afterwards, the gentlemen conferred and agreed that this was a good thing, and that it should be repeated. And so began the STEAK OF THE MONTH CLUB.
