Militant vegans, prepare your wrath! Vegetarians, prepare whatever level of indignation is indicated by your particular stripe of vegetarianism! Ethan Stowell's newest restaurant is a place for red meat, with five cuts of the red of the cow at the center of the menu. There's hanger steak, New York strip, filet mignon, a boneless rib eye, and a huge bone-in rib eye for "at least" two happy carnivores to share.
