The meat at The Block is butchered in-house. Here chef Marc Del Pietro cuts the grass-fed New York strip steaks.

New York strips are seasoned with a house-made pepper mix before grilling.

I have now eaten at the Block in the CWE 4 times and each meal is an event unto itself.  If you have never tasted bacon jam this is the place to experience it. I had it for the first time at the Block; fabulous flavors of sweet, salty and smokey all in one appetizer. Don't criticize until you try it. YUM!  And  each entree' is a feast unto itself. Not only are the flavors of each dish complimentary of the individual ingredients but the presentation is done with expertise and taste.  I look forward to trying another dish there upon my next visit. 


That picture makes me want steak and fries!!!
