America, stop it with the sexist steakhouses. Today, Eater Boston confirmed that STK's Rebel steakhouse chain, which is apparently designed to appeal to women by offering smaller portions or something, will open in Beantown next year. STK also plans on expanding the more "feminine" chain into Miami, San Diego, Austin, and Denver in the coming years. Smart business decision or not, this is a step back for women in America. While it's true that some women may desire portions of meat that are smaller than those served at the average steakhouse, Rebel is not actually catering to women so much as it is catering to older men who want to ogle young women. CEO Jonathan Segal even admitted as much to the Boston Globe: "the concept attracts women in their 20s and older — and men in their late 30s and older."
