Steak on a Stone

I forgot to mention in my previous post that I had lunch at this place called Steak on a Stone in North Olmsted yesterday. This is a pretty sweet concept. From their site:

First we heat our volcanic stones to over 750 degrees in our specially designed oven for 6 to 8 hours. When they come out, they are placed upon our stoneware dishes that help to keep the meal warm while the outer dish remains cool to the touch.

Then we place your meal selection directly upon the hot stone. This extreme heat sears the food and seals in the natural juices and flavor of your food. You then simply slice a piece off and by placing it upon the stone, cook each individual bite to the wellness you enjoy.

Basically when they give you the steak to eat the top and bottom are seared and cooked already but the middle/sides are still raw. You cut slices off and individually cook each piece. I'm not one for working for my food usually but it was really good and no more effort than cutting pieces off a steak normally. The cut of meat and flavor easily beat out any Texas Roadhouse, Longhorn, or Outback steak (not that any of those are exactly high quality... just sayin'). The bill for a dinner steak, a lunch chicken sandwich, two sodas, and two desserts was $49. Not bad considering the quality of the food.
