New York City Restaurant Revives Beefsteak Dinners


Here's a fun event for foodies and history buffs alike: In the 19th century, men would gather in saloons, pubs and taverns for "Beefsteak Dinners," which involved eating small pieces of different cuts of beef with their bare hands (and with plenty of drinks to wash it down). Today, the Copper Room at the Brass Monkey in downtown New York is launching a new (co-ed) monthly dining event series that will revive Manhattan’s historical Beefsteak forks needed!

Consulting Chef Daniel Parilla (of Minetta Tavern) has created a menu of distinct cuts of beef alongside an offering of light or dark beer (one glass is included in the price), grilled onions, roasted potatoes and country bread with salted butter. Guests can sample endless platters of meat recapturing the festive spirit of a unique era. 

All marinated in garlic, rosemary & Irish Whiskey, the meat selections will consist of:

•                Standing Bone In Ribeye

•                Flat Iron Steak

•                Top sirloin

•                Bone Marrow

•                Beef Cheeks 

Located in the city's Meatpacking District (55 Little West 12th St.), The Copper Room at Brass Monkey evokes what they call "an elevated tavern experience." The First Beefsteak dinner will take place tonight at The Copper Room at 7:30pm by reservation only for groups of six or more.  As the series evolves, there will be two seatings on each of those last Wednesday nights of the month where the Beefsteak Dinners will take over The Cooper Room. Groups smaller then six will be placed at a communal table with other smaller parties.
