I don’t really care where they came from: they are usually good wherever you find them!

A charbroiled 8-oz flat-iron steak with roasted cipollini onions, house-cut Yukon Gold fries, truffle aioli, chimichurri and a peppercorn sauce.

Proof offers a few cuts of meat to which can be added frites: try the char-grilled Denver cut Wagyu “centre under blade” with thrice-cooked Yukon Gold frites.
