New York steakhouse Old Homestead is one of the city’s oldest, dating back to 1868 when it opened just one block outside the Meatpacking District. Its menu has changed in those 149 years of course, and one of its biggest hallmarks was the introduction of true Kobe beef in the 1990s.
In this episode, The Meat Show host Nick Solares talks to Old Homestead owner and chef Greg Sherry, who is now bringing in even more beef from Kobe, Japan. “It’s a Rolls-Royce compared to the Kobe that we used to have,” says Sherry of his latest beef import. Sherry is preparing the cut with a little Japanese flavor, but in a way that’s strictly all-American steakhouse.
