WAY back in the day… History of Beefsteak Diners:
Beefsteak banquets originated among the working class of New York City in the mid-1800s as celebratory meals or testimonials. The meal would generally be set up by an organization wishing to laud or raise money for politicians, newly promoted friends, or celebrities and they were initially all-male gatherings in rustic taverns or dingy cellars where, sitting on crates or stools, they would sing, tell stories, eat steaks, and drink ale with abandon. Etiquette was set aside. No knives or forks were allowed. The participants ate tender morsels of beef steak, wiping the grease on large napkins or aprons. Alongside the main course were often slices of bread saturated in gravy.
(Don’t worry! The Delaware Small Business Chamber is up with the times.
It’s 2017. Our DSBC Beefsteak will offer flatware and napkins and even chairs.
Aprons will be provided however as well.)
