    Any hope for a good tip is pretty much done now, too

    Some restaurants disclaim responsibility for meat requested to be cooked well done. They could just serve shoe leather.

    Ah, that’s what I call service. We cook it until you tell us “when.”

    At Coco’s in Woodland Hills, California I once got a medium rare steak that was still frozen on the inside. That means they precooked the steak (who knows how long ago), froze it, then microwaved it before serving. Up until then, I’d been eating there once a week. It’s been 20 years since I’ve eaten there.

    When I pay good money at a restaurant, I expect freshly prepared food, not rewarmed leftovers.

    If they get butcher shop quality meat, it’s quite possible to cook it to well done without spoiling it. I had trouble getting a steak from Safeway to cook through without turning tough, but the old fashioned butcher shop/deli steaks always turn out great.

    A good steak house has no problem with “well done.” It’s the ones who take short cuts that will come out tough.

    This restaurant should be named “CRAPOLLINI’S”.
