Sticks and bones

Steakhouses?  I’ve been to a few.

But Gibson’s in Chicago actually surprised me.


I expected the steaks to be good. They were. The atmosphere was less stuffy than many steakhouses. The service better.

But what really surprised me was how often I used the term ‘bone-in’ tonight in polite company. And how quickly it became impolite.

Actually, that didn’t surprise me at all.

I did learn why ‘bone-in’ makes your steak tasty. It’s something to do with the bone marrow melting.

He he. ‘Bone-in.’
