The basic menu concept is driven by the fact that there is no substitute in the restaurant business for freshness and consistency. The beef selections when ordered are cut on the premises from USDA Choice Loins. Most entrees are prepared on an open charcoal hearth. A small but fresh salad bar is a favorite with diners.
