Steakcraft: The Marrow's Rib Steak and Top Sirloin

I have never seen a chef who seasons steak as often and as fastidiously as Harold Dieterle does.

And just as the respective restaurants offer different glimpses of the thematic elements that inspire them, so to is the handling of the same cut, leading to three very different, yet equally compelling results.
