The Beefsteak. Once a very common working-class celebration in the saloons and banquet halls of old New York, the all-you-can-eat steak night has been all but forgotten in recent years. But on Monday, Uncle Barry's Bar, on Fifth Avenue between Bergen and St. Marks, is bringing it back with style.
From 2-8 PM on Monday the no-frills bar, opened last November by cousins Jake Treback and Josh Ellis, will be hosting an honest to goodness Labor Day Beefsteak. All you can eat steak (grilled up in the back yard by "regular and authority on the history of the Beefsteak" Augustin Estrella, along with unlimited Gennessee Cream Ale, for $25/person.
If you can't make it out of town for the holiday, you might as well take part in a classic NYC tradition!
