:: Server Stories: Surf & Turf ::
We had a couple of beefy guys stop in Monday and judging from their attire they were here for the NASCAR race over the weekend? How did I know? I'm just that observant. (That and one guy wore T-shirt that said "NASCAR" across the front.) They weren't at my table but I could tell they were quite hungry when I saw their order. Traditional Surf & Turf is a steak and a lobster tail. We only sell whole lobster so our Surf & Turf is a New York Strip and shrimp. These two guys ordered a dinner consisting of a Filet Mignon and a whole lobster, including the sides.

It was an impressive bill for only two people (almost $200) but everyone was amazed that both the guys thought they could put away that much food. "Really?" I wondered. It was an 8-ounce filet (pre-cooked weight), and the lobster was 1 1/2 pounds, which seems like a lot but at least half that weight is shell, so we're still talking only about a pound of food. Including the corn, potatoes, and pasta sides, it wasn't really that much. Or at least I thought so, ('cuz I'm a fatass) but I was clearly the minority opinion.

But can you blame me? To give you an idea of what I can eat, Publix had Porterhouse steaks on sale for $7.99 a pound and I bought a nice 32oz piece that I'm going to enjoy in a couple of days (I've had bigger, I once polished off a 36oz at a steakhouse, along with a tomato and onion salad and a couple of sides) along with some shrimp. And the best thing about eating that at home instead of at some restaurant: once you've eating all the meat, you can pick up the bone with your hands and start gnawing away, since some of the best tasting meat is right on the bone. Good stuff.
