Savenors rib eye

twentyoystahs | Jun 20, 2011 12:43 PM

So, for a very special family BBQ yesterday we got 5.4 lbs of ribeye from Savenors at $24/pp. (You do the math, yep, it really was THAT much) We figured it was worth it to get the very best.
Grilled it to perfection...served it with some grilled peppers & onions and lots of other yummy sides, and proceeded to be completely underwhelmed. The steak I ate was fine, but unremarkable with very little flavor (keep in mind I tend not to like really strong, gamy, steak-y flavors so if I think it was flavorless, it must have REALLY been. It tasted more like a tenderloin or a filet to me vs. a ribeye) A few other foiks said their piece was flavorful but really really chewy. So apparently the steaks varied a bit. My question -- anyone else have this experience at Savenor's recently? I know they are supposedly the "best of the best" in Boston, and not being huge meat eaters, this was actually our first experience there --have to say not the best. Just wondering if it was just really bad luck, or if they have gone downhill lately, or...something else. I have to say I'm not feeling like we'll run back there anytime soon. I may give a call and let them know of our experience....just curious if anyone else has experienced similar...
