The Top 100 List: #47 Simms Steakhouse’s “Baseball Cut Sirloin”


Simms Steak House’s “Baseball Cut Sirloin”

Location: 6th ave and Simms

The Skinny: Up front, I’ll own up to the fact that I’m very hard on steaks.  And maybe it’s not fair.  I spent an entire summer perfecting a steak recipe – the results of which will blow your head off.  So it’s with guarded reservations that I go to a restaurant known as a “steak joint” and dive into theirs.  It’s always the same thing: the need to get the steaks out quickly means they have to use high heat.  And high heat affects the quality of the inside of the meat.  What you get is a rainbow of doneness: well, medium-well, medium, and finally that small circle of perfect medium-rare.  With less heat (and more time), the whole thing could be medium rare… I’m just sayin.

Simms falls into this same pattern.  The round, “baseball cut” steak arrived medium rare, with precisely the rainbow mentioned above, and was just average.  Average steakhouse steak, with a hefty pricetag of $26 (for sirloin, not filet mignon mind you).  The teriyaki glaze made for some fleeting interest in the crust, but nothing too exciting.  One final compliment: the service was truly fantastic.  I only wish the steaks had kept up.
