To all the meat lovers in town, this is the episode for you! If you're a vegetarian, this episode will show you how even vegetarians can have a great steakhouse experience. Steakhouses have been around since the late 1600s. Over the years, they've had many changes to suit current needs, such as providing choices for vegetarians, or technological developments like using the 'dry ager' method. Today, we speak to James Norman, the executive chef at Astor Grill, and Michael Omumbwa who's the general manager, to learn more about the steakhouse and restaurant business, the unique dry ager method of preserving meat for 21 days before you cook it, and how Astor Grill manages to serve 'oh-so-flavorful' meat.
