Are Bone In Filets really fillets?

MIght be wrong about this, but from what i was told, delmonico refers to the type of cut, and can involve more than one type of chop from the tender regions of the cow. What makes a delmonico chop special, that in order to make that cut, it ruins your chances of making other steaks from that area, and isn't cost effective for the sale of the whole side of beef.

Any hope for tough rib eye steaks that I bought?

Always remember to let your steak rest away from heat, before you slice it. My rule of thumb is at least 6 minutes off the grill. It might seem like forever, and as much as you fear your steak is getting cold, relax, let the juices flow. Slicing into it any sooner will result in that puddle of precious tenderness that was meant to remain in your steak.

Top 5 Sushi L.A.- I know it's been done, but this is 2010!

You get it, that's all I have to say, less about the man, more about the customers.

I would love to know what you guys think of Sushi IKi in tarzana. So far Eddie takes the cake on sushi in LA for me. Ursawa reeks of pretention, and personally i'd rather be gutting fish on a boat, then sitting in that overpriced beverly hills shack any day.
