He presents to you this ideal combination, right here at the world famous Whaling Station. This has been confirmed by our judges, over one million diners.

Our sources are under continuous scrutiny, as is each individually selected side of beef. Upon “making the cut,” these premium finds are then trucked to the restaurant where our chef prepares them.
