Bull and Bear – Post-Marital Solo Mission

What better way to celebrate post-marital bliss than with a gigantic cut of beef!! My fiance and I wed the day before and spent the night at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC to celebrate the next night. Located on the Lexington Avenue side of the hotel is the famous Bull and Bear Steakhouse. Dope tower suite + steakhouse in the hotel = no need to leave the building!

As we dropped the “Steak Club7” name for our reservation at the host desk, we were met with a funny look. Goes to show, you should never pre-judge anyone, especially when my money spends like anyone else but also comes with a review on the world’s premier steak club website! We were seated in the old-world feeling mahogany dining room where we quickly selected a bottle of red wine and ordered the Speck Prosciutto with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese as an appetizer. It was very light but quite delicious.

The Bull and Bear is famous for being the first restaurant on the East Coast to serve USDA Certified Angus Beef(C) Prime, so given the choice, we both took it. A Prime Filet for the Mrs. and a Prime NY Strip for myself. We were both quite pleased with our cuts and although mine was slighlty over cooked, it was still really delicious.

For sides we chose the Au Gratin potatoes from the appropriately named “starch” menu and accompanied it with some green beans. Both were fantastic but admittedly, pouring the bernaise sauce that Mrs. Rev ordered with her Filet made me think they should actually serve that on the menu. DAMN IT WAS GOOD.

Generally, I opt for no sauce as a Prime piece of beef should need little to no seasoning and should be judged as such. I will say though, that in any other situation, I love me some sauce. The green peppercorn was really vibrant and thick but definitely over powered the beef. A dip here and there of the bernaise, were definitely worth trying but not worth overdoing!

In the end, the service was ok and the food was pretty good. Price was a little high but as the corn crops cost more, the price is passed on to the consumer. In the end, everything was really good but nothing stood out. The Bull and Bear was more like Calf and Teddy.
