The Original Delmonico's Restaurant - where Steak Perfection began
Steak Perfection began at the original Delmonico's Restaurant in Manhattan.
In the 1850's, the Italian chef, Alessandro Filippinni, designed the very first dish that attained
Steak Perfection, which he called the Delmonico Steak.
Unfortunately, the restaurant closed in the 1920's, and none of today's
Delmonico's is the original.

Preliminary Requirements for SteakPerfection
There are three preliminaries for a steak even to be considered for
- First, the short loin steak (i.e. New York,
porterhouse, etc.) must be the highest quality, which in the U.S. means USDA
Prime Grade (or the equivalent), with a marbling score of at
least Moderately Abundant (called Prime0 or better, with at
least 12.1% intramuscular fat).
- Second, the steak must be dry-aged 30 days or more in a properly
controlled meat locker.
- Third, the steak must be grilled over live, hardwood coals.
If a steak meets these three preliminary requirements, then it may be further
evaluated to determine if it has achieved SteakPerfection.
