Sharing a steak in Toronto steakhouses

LearningHow | Dec 10, 2012 07:08 AM

DH's birthday is coming up and he has indicated he would like to go to Jacobs and Co.
I've browsed the menu online, and all the steaks that he (or I) would most likely order are HUGE, as in 32oz or larger.
I myself would barely be able to finish 8 to 10 oz of steak (especially in addition to the tableside caesar which I heard is a must as well as maybe a couple of other sides -- DH is fond of mushrooms in particular).
However, I'm not that interested in the tenderloin or striploin, which seems to be the only cuts which are a reasonable size (for me, at least).

Would it be considered extremely gauche if we shared a steak?
It's not so much the cost (it's a birthday meal so we will splurge -- though I don't know if we would splurge for the wagyu cuts - and in fact the one steak would cost more than if we ordered 2 separate smaller cuts) but the excessive amount of food that I know will not be finished.
