What's a Beefsteak?
Beefsteak banquets originated in New York City in the mid-1800s as a way to celebrate, promote and financially support organizations. At these dinners, beef tenderloin is served as all-you-can-eat finger food, thinly sliced on rounds of bread. Eating with one's fingers and not being afraid to get messy were integral to the culture of the early beefsteaks, and napkins were considered unnecessary. (However, we will be providing napkins for those who prefer to "always look good.")
