Now, that's a steak

Oh, glorious hunk of charred beef. No matter what the health-food wonks say, there is a time and place for a primal hunk of red meat. No matter the reason or heft of your red-meat desire, Burch Steak has a cut to satisfy.

Burch offers several cuts and types of steak for every eater. There is grass-fed, corn-fed, fatty, lean, thick, trim, choice, and prime, but it's not so much that it's overwhelming. Chances are, in one look, it's easy to identify the dish that was meant just for your lips. Prices also range from the affordable to special-occasion range. 

These steaks satisfy down to your marrow. Aggressively seasoned crust is charred until crunchy on the exterior, picking up flavor from those licks of flame. The interior is tender, languid in a pool of ruby juices.

Accoutrements include a tangy house-made steak sauce, which gilds the carnivorous lily, enhancing that juicy, primal flavor. It adds a little more smoke, tartness, and a subtle sweetness. There's also a velvety, rich bearnaise sauce and a little dish of tart pickled mushrooms. These guys are the Supremes to the steak's Diana Ross. There is only one real star here.
