Specialist dry aged beef restaurant in York
Famous for our superb beef, we’re always asking ourselves, how do we make our steaks even better? Introducing our ‘Dry Aging Cabinet’ – a new addition that sets us apart from the rest of York’s amazing restaurants.
What is dry aged beef?
Dry aging is a traditional art that exposes large cuts of beef to controlled conditions for an extended period, ranging from weeks to months. During this time, natural enzymes break down the muscle tissue, tenderising the meat while concentrating the flavour. This process intensifies the taste for a unique depth and complexity.
Our new mantra: Rat less meat…Eat better beef
As connoisseurs of exquisite beef, we understand the significance of aging meat to enhance its texture and flavour. In order to provide the ultimate steak experience, we’ve invested in a top-of-the-line dry aging cabinet. The cabinet allows us to carefully control the temperature, humidity, and air circulation needed to achieve the perfect conditions for dry aging our prime cuts of beef.
Benefits of dry aging: why is it so damn good?
Unparalleled flavour: dry aging enhances the beef’s natural richness, lending a distinct nutty, buttery flavour. Every bite is big, beefy, savoury explosion.
Exceptional tenderness: the enzymes at work during the aging process break down collagen, resulting a melt-in-your-mouth experience.
Concentrated juiciness: the evaporation that occurs during dry aging concentrates the natural juices within the meat, creating a succulence that is truly outstanding.
What’s in the cabinet?
We’re curating an ever-changing selection of fantastic breeds and delicious cuts of beef from around the world.
