Day 43—Sunday, February 21st
Steak Frites

First off, let me thank Fred “Godfather” Rewey for lighting up the donation board with a five dollar donation. Fred heard about the 365 site via the coolest DJ in the world, Gidget from Woody Radio! Fred has two websites and you can check them out by clicking here: The Slow Bleed and here: Cigar Secrets. Thanks for the dough Godfather! And check out Gidget's blog here: Gidget Bate's Crap She Spews.

Okay, it hasn’t been the best weekend ever. Friday sucked ass at work, the bar Friday was a bit of a dud, yesterday my bathroom ceiling caved in and I had to work today. And then when I turned on my computer, one of the cats I’m catsitting for jumped on my keyboard and all of the sudden everything went negative on the monitor. Luckily I got 365 resident artist and computer expert “Boris” on the line and he helped me fix it. Thanks “Boris!”

Here's Q. the keyboard culprit.

I’m kind of beat, so I’m not going far for my Sunday night dinner. Less than a block away there’s a French Steakhouse called Steak Frites that has a nice bar and the food is always great. I hope you’re hungry because we’ll be there in less than two minutes. And awaaaay we go!

And here we are and none too soon, I'm starvin' like Marvin!

Here's the specials of the night. What the fuck is a Radeberger?

Carla the hostess greets me as I enter.

There's lots of room at the bar, so I take a seat.

Wow, the menu has a whole page of different beers to pick from. Woo hoo!

I chose a Duvel, which Allen the bartender graciously pours into a glass.


A view from the other end of the bar.

George is not only my neighbor at the bar, he's my neighbor in real life. it turns out he lives a block away from me.

There's lots of tables and comfortable booths in the back room.

Fred was enjoying a beer and a rose. He was part of the team that created this intriguing website: search4e.

Doreen is the cute and hospitable manager of Steak Frites.

My appetizer is served! Shrimp and Jumbo Lump Crab Cocktail. It was delicious!

And the main course, a Petite Filet and Frites with Bearnaise sauce. A beautiful thing!

Here I attack the plate. Bonzai!

Buuurp! Goodnight Everybody!


Steak Frites has long been a fixture on the Union Square scene in New York.
It’s a French styled steak brasserie with outside seating in the warmer months. Gourmet Magazine calls it the “most satisfyingly genuine bistro ever to open in New York City.”

In addition to their specialty Steak and Frites, the menu includes, Slow Cooked Short Ribs, Crispy Skin Scottish Salmon, Herb Roasted Australian Rack of Lamb and Pan Seared Sea Scallops. They offer nightly dinner specials and brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm.

The bar offers up a large selection of beers including an impressive amount of Belgian beers. An extensive wine list is also available. There’s a daily happy hour at Steak Frites as well, for those of you that want to unwind after work. À la votre !

That steak looks delicious! In fact, it doesn't remind me of Robert Downey, Jr. at all! I like the stools, I like those lamps, I like it all! But did you ever find out what a Radeberger is?

John Radeberger.
Didn't he play Cliff Clavin on "Cheers"?

Looks like you turned the weekend into something "positive" in other ways too.
Fucking cats.

Looks like a classy and very tasty dinner you had, and a good night out that you needed as of late. I guess it didn't break your bank either or you would have mentioned it in your own special way. I had to have my eyes washed out with soap after the last time you really got mad! Well, as a certain Qwest wi-fi crasher was wont to say...Hors devours, mon chereif!

Bearnaise sauce is one of my favorite 'condiments' EVER. But, I do hope they gave you more than THREE shrimp?

February 22, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

And wait.... did you ever find out what the hell is a Radeberger?

February 22, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermeleah rebeccah

I am sorry that you had a bad weekend but I must say that despite his keyboard antics Q is truly adorable.

The food looks amazing and the bar itself looks like such a pleasant place. That picture of George cracks me up, he looks like a very nice person and his search engine is very user-friendly.

Great place!!

That looked like a great Sunday dinner and I'm with everyone else, what the hell is a Radeberger???

I look forward to reading along as your adventures continue...(and may you avoid any further encounters with large groups of drunken New Jerseyans :-) )
