Keen's Steakhouse (2): Order the salad

Keen's Steakhouse (July 2012)
72 W 36th St
New York, NY

Sameer: ZERO COW- Porterhouse (medium rare), strip (rare - complimentary) Wow, I did not see this coming.  Just awful in my opinion.  Putting aside how completely overdone the steak was, even the complimentary steak the maitre'd gave us, though a nice gesture, added insult to injury.  I would write more, but the steak was so disappointing, I scrubbed it from my brain.  What I do remember was poor char, poor flavor, poor quality meat.

On a more positive note, they were very nice about it (this probably marks the first time we have ever said something about the steak being overdone), and the scotch list was nothing short of breathtaking.  

Jeff:  - nein cows - I refuse to give charity points just for giving us a free steak (that was not even the same cut) because they nuked the first one.  An abused housewife could cook steaks more consistently, and with less whining.  When a fellow diner had to be carted out on a stretcher, we should have taken the hint from God.  Maybe he was allergic to disappointment.
