Beefsteak | Saturday, November 2, 6-10pm
One hundred years ago, in a meatier day, the Beefsteak was the highest and happiest of all carnivorous celebration. Originating in the Gilded Age, New York beefsteaks were marked by endless platters of dry-aged prime steak, served family style, to apron-wearing guests. The only rule of these gleeful and over-the-top events were the promise they made that their attendees would never leave hungry (or, in some cases, sober).
Meatopia San Antonio will bring back this incredible tradition. Tim Byres from Smoke in Dallas, The Granary’s Tim Rattray and Mike Toscano from Perla in New York City will collaborate to grill some of the rarest, most celebrated ultra-prime beef in the world, serving it up sizzling in a decadent, live fire-fueled night of excess. Beefsteak revelers will be treated to all the steak they can hold, along with specially created libations from Diageo, Corona, Modelo and Shiner beer bars, as well as Guinness on draft.
Meatopia | Sunday, November 3, 1-5pm
There is no more ambitious or spectacular meat-centric culinary event in the world than Meatopia proper, an immense, exciting, celebration of meat and meat cookery, featuring over thirty chefs from Texas and around the country, cooking beef, pork, veal, chicken, duck, quail, bison and many other animals, from snout to tail, nearly all of which come from dozens of independent farms throughout Texas and the U.S.
