Any steak that you have to marinate is, by definition, mediocre

Alfred's is not bad. Peter Lugers, as of last week is still the undisputed King (or I should say Queen, as it's run by 3 sisters). There is no finer meat anywhere.

When one wants shoes, they go to a shoe store. The bay area does noy have a decent "steak house".
In order to be classified as a first class steak house, it must serve "dry aged" beef. The best in the US is Peter Lugers in Brooklyn.
Harris"s and BoBo's are not bad. Alfred's has the feel and some of the meat is dry aged.
Grass fed beef is a waste of time and none of it is dry aged.
Dry ageing breaks down certain enzymes and gives the steak a unique flavor. It is also more expensive as it shrinks a bit in the process. Wet aging does not make it taste any better.
I have been pining for years for a STEAK HOUSE. The Palm tried 25 years ago but failed (mainly due location)
Keep hoping

Philly Cheese Steak?

I was born and raised in Philly. Weaned on Pats and Geno's. The only thing close is the original @ The Cheese Steak on Divasadero. They fly in Amoroso rolls, carry Wise potato chips and Tasty Cakes.
What are "Little Debbie's snack cakes"? They sure aren't from Philly!
Get "cheese wit"
