After 100 years in exile, the beefsteak is back. Come one, come all, to the Bell House in Gowanus on Sunday, November 8th from 3pm to 6pm to partake in the raucous atmosphere of the New York docks and saloons of years past.
The Brooklyn Beefsteak will feature hundreds of pounds of All-you-can-eat naturally raised aged beef, ever-flowing McSorley's Light and Dark Ale, your own McSorley's pint glass, Delicious side dishes prepared by one of NYC's top young chefs -- and absolutely no utensils. Residing in a 1920s printing factory, the Bell House will provide a perfect venue for a feast for over 250 thirsty carnivorous guests.
