Even vegetarians will agree, there are a lot of beautiful colors dressing up that 2-pound hunk of meat right there. (Unfortunately, no, I was not able to complete my entire steak that night. But fortunately, yes, my leftovers for lunch on Sunday were amazing, and just as good as eating the ribeye in the restaurant.)
My dad doesn’t get excited about luxurious things, so when he kept dropping hints to me about Alexander’s Steakhouse in Cupertino, I knew I had to be a good daughter and book us a table. Not one of us was disappointed that night.
