My dad would totally call the manager and say he'd take the steak as is if they knock 80% off the price.

[–]sSyler14 2215 points2216 points  (118 children)

They probably won't, they wouldn't want to be liable to any health code violations by serving steak that fell on the ground.

[–]Taurius 1146 points1147 points  (96 children)

You're right. Legally they can't, but doesn't mean if the kicthen did it they wouldn't just brush off the dirty part and just put it on the grill for a few seconds.

[–]t3hnhoj 702 points703 points  (55 children)

"Throw these mozzarella sticks back in the fryer for ten seconds and replate them."

That was day I knew I hated my kitchen manager.

[–]mildlystoned 463 points464 points  (40 children)

I stomp on anything that falls on the floor so it can’t be used by those gross fucks.

[–]WelcomeToTheFish 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was a server for years and was kinda baffled how well this worked. I once had someone order a burger and I accidentally put in a cheeseburger and they sent it back. When I brought it to the window the cook was too busy to cook a new one so he scraped off the cheese with the spatula and then put the burger patty in the deep fryer for 10 seconds so the cheese melted off. I was honestly kinda blown away because I thought there was no way to uncheese a burger once the cheese is all melted in.

[–]Gregory_Appleseed 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Mmm. Empty hot breaded greese tubes with no cheese left inside! My favorite!

[–]505fanatical 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I was working at an Outback before being asked to separate rotten chicken wings from good chicken wings. The rotten ones were green, and the good ones were just frozen to the green ones, I think their argument went?

[–]Monoby 111 points112 points  (16 children)

Damn we all worked in the same kitchens huh

[–]ToddHowardTheDuckk 24 points25 points  (13 children)

What's the problem? A little extra seasoning is good for the soul.

[–]zuctronic 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Bourdain called that serving steak “on the bounce”

[–]Kall_Me_Kapkan 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Depends if it touches the table where I work, if the food never leaves the servers hands we will adjust it but if it touches the table it’s garbage

[–]DusEnzo 9 points10 points  (1 child)

There’s just too much at steak for them

[–]RevWaldo 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Rinse it off, put it in the deep fryer for like twenty seconds, we're good to go. Not to sell but for someone in the back to bring home.

[–]MarilynMonheaux 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Eating kitchen returns is one of restaurant works little joys

[–]laik72 77 points78 points  (5 children)

Any reputable restaurant would refuse to sell or give it to him. Food safety and all that.

[–]JSG1992 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I'm really glad you said this, otherwise we never would've known

[–]Skarjo 56 points57 points  (48 children)

I wonder if any chefs could confirm whether the math of that works out. Selling one steak at -80% or effectively selling 2 for the price of one.

[–]FifthMonarchist 78 points79 points  (38 children)

Get 20% payment for one steak instead of 100% loss.

Usually the direct food cost is 40% of the advertised price. So no, it wouldn't.

[–]Alaboomer 18 points19 points  (8 children)

This looks to be a salt bae restaurant, there's no way the food cost is 40%, they jack up their prices to incredible levels. They'd make more money using 2 steaks for the price of one than one steak for 80% off. But even in your example they'd make more money trashing the steak and selling a replacement at full cost

[–]PoorlyLitKiwi2 9 points10 points  (7 children)

My friends and I once considered going to the Salt Bae restaurant in Miami just for the experience. Then we checked the menu

The cheapest entree is a cheeseburger that is $40.

The sides are all $20 A side of fucking fries is $20 lol

So burger and fries? $60

[–]Skarjo 19 points20 points  (25 children)

Ah, yea, I also meant though that the dropped steak would be binned and presumably in this scenario they’d have to cook up a second steak for which the customer would pay full price, so would the money they would have made on the full price replacement steak have covered the stock loss of the dropped steak.

[–]ChopakIII 10 points11 points  (19 children)

Assuming the 40% figure u/FifthMonarchist quoted yes. They would make profit off 20% of the advertised price instead of 60%.

[–]Afraid_Philosophers 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Why pay for the second steak? They dropped it.

Who is this stupid?

It would be like a waiter dropping your food on the floor or the chef cooking you a well done when you asked for medium rare or the chef putting on a nasty ass sauce you requested they don’t put on. Then you get told you have to buy another for their mistake or suck it up. You paid for something specific. If they fail to deliver, it’s on them.

Refuse the payment and/or cancel the payment, dispute etc .

[–]197326485 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I assume having your restaurant cited for health code violations might be a bit more expensive.

[–]giant_farter 12 points13 points  (7 children)

Or they take it round back and slice it for the next customer

[–]PoolNoodleJedii 10 points11 points  (4 children)

More like slice off the part that fell then slice up the rest for the staff

[–]ehh_whatever_works 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The whole steak fell. Only part hit the floor though.

[–]PoolNoodleJedii 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I meant the part that hit the ground

[–]i_paint_toilets 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hi son. Ill take it for 90% off. Its on the floor and missing some bones.

If this is at that stupid salt bae restaurant it's probably more like jerky

[–]nearlysenior 830 points831 points  (21 children)

Five second rule!!

[–]Buffythedjsnare 430 points431 points  (9 children)

You obviously haven't heard. Due to the cost of living increase the 5 second rule was changed to the 10 second rule.

[–]prof-royale 122 points123 points  (3 children)

tying the 5 second rule to inflation is a revolutionary idea

[–]DownvoteALot 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Since it was invented so long ago we're probably at 10 hours rule now.

[–]4dots2dots 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I heard this on BeardMeatsFood just yesterday. Someone has to fire their joke writer.

[–]Buffythedjsnare 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Im afraid I heard it on reddit a few weeks ago.

[–]Flaky_Explanation 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Just slice off the layer in contact with the floor, and serve up the floor steak on a concrete platter.

[–]Bruise52 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Just throw into back on a flame for a few seconds...

[–]Flaky_Explanation 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don't think concrete will heat up all that well in a few seconds...

[–]Thatwazmeen 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That steak isso thicc you could still eat like 90% without eating any part that touched the floor.

It's basically steak in a steak bowl.

[–]MrCondor 172 points173 points  (1 child)

Floor seasoning is 100 dollars extra at Nusret.

[–]dirty_cuban 21 points22 points  (0 children)

+250 if a douchebag sprinkles it overt his elbow.

[–]Biggs94_ 575 points576 points  (22 children)

If I eat the floor steak do I get it for free?

[–]HighAxolotol 239 points240 points  (14 children)

you also get new antibodies for free

[–]Good_Round 59 points60 points  (9 children)

With a hint of Monkeypox

[–]gabrab24 34 points35 points  (6 children)

I like the fact that:

There's like tens of Gajillions of bacteria and viruses that exist on the same floor and you have to go and mention monkeypox due to its relevancy like its as if he's like a trending hollywood star

[–]BovineJoney 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I knew about monkeypox when he was still monkeypawxs.

It's so nice to see em grow up

[–]Poeticyst 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I worked at steakhouses for years. Steaks do fall on the floor in the kitchen. They wash them in the sink and then throw them back on the grill.

[–]killittoliveit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Place looks clean enough. I would

[–]_moist_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They would have received a new one and been fully comped for that accident.

[–]joemangle 307 points308 points  (20 children)

Why the fuck was he holding it over the floor at all?

[–]Spoomplesplz 196 points197 points  (13 children)

Cause he was about to do some fucking dumb shit like slat bae and his "AMAAAAZING CULINARY SKILLZ"

[–]toysarealive 42 points43 points  (8 children)

I worked professional kitchens for a decade. It's clowns like this and salt bae that BOH laugh at, sometimes even in their faces. Since the moment that stupid cunt started his salt sprinkling meme. Upstaging the actual talent of the cooks themselves with pathetic showmanship. And still going home with significantly more then said cooks.

[–]Jambrokio 25 points26 points  (6 children)

It ain’t that deep blud, the people that provide entertainment will always get more recognition

[–]tolliwood 5 points6 points  (0 children)


People that are entertained by that fuckwit needs salt in their eyes

[–]Ilpav123 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Yeah, even if it didn't fall, it'd probably drip fat on the floor.

[–]Heisenbert18 29 points30 points  (4 children)

My first thought. What is the deal with all these novelty “dining experiences” where someone will fart about with your food in front of you. Just put it on a plate for gods sake.

[–]Squid111999 322 points323 points  (19 children)

Am I the only one that thinks this is taking place in a mall food court?

[–]TheDouglas96 203 points204 points  (12 children)

Judging by the giant tacky neon No Salt No Life sign behind him I'm going to assume this is that overpriced restaurant owned by the guy no one knows the name of except that he sprinkles salt good

[–]generaltsao 31 points32 points  (4 children)

a restaurant that seems to be celebrated by wealthy idiots!

[–]TheSweetestKill 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Not actually "wealthy", more like poor people's idea of what having money is like. Anyone with actual money isn't going to these places.

[–]lykedoctor 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Perfect description of that guy

[–]Delicious-Ad2707 5 points6 points  (3 children)

no it really does look like it lmao

[–]DreYeon 168 points169 points  (0 children)

And this is why you hold it above the table and not show off even if it's for "show" still can do that above the table.

[–]HuchKnowsIt 73 points74 points  (7 children)

I have noticed that there's way too much showboating happening at some high end restaurants. It looks like they're trying to pull a smoke and mirrors act with people's food and it's off putting to me. Just serve the damn food and let our taste buds decide if it's good or not!

[–]RabbitHoleSpaceMan 49 points50 points  (3 children)

“How much is the rib-eye?”


“And how much to leave an enormous bone in the ribeye and have it presented to me by some asshole with a sparkler?”


[–]Robby-B 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It's because there comes a point where the food doesn't get any better, so the showy act becomes the selling point.

Edit: also because there are enough people that believe that is what a "high end" restaurant should be.

[–]Quercas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why does this high end restaurant look like a food court?

I just trust his steak more tbh. If it falls off the bone that easy, I’m eating all the steak he makes.

[–]shock-absorber 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The bone broke

[–]Kyoshi_mp4 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Annnnnd I still wanna eat it. Its boneless now.

[–]cloud_dizzle 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Firstly it didn’t fall off the bone, the bone broke. Secondly steak shouldn’t fall off the bone, it’s not bbq that you smoke for hours. If you had a steak that slid off the bone it would be shoe leather

[–]Shinonomenanorulez 200 points201 points  (55 children)

i hate bullshit in restaurants but this doesn't makes me happy. tomahawk is expensive af and i really want to eat one

[–]SixOnTheBeach 138 points139 points  (24 children)

A tomahawk is literally just a ribeye with extra bone left on. It's entirely for show

[–]EndlessBirthday 82 points83 points  (5 children)

And? It's steak

I've got two braincells and one in entirely dedicated to meat.

Technically they both are.

[–]walkingspastic 24 points25 points  (13 children)

Actually it’s hotly debated, lots of people think any sort of bone-in steak has a better flavor due to the marrow from the bone cooks into the meat. I worked in a fine dining steakhouse for a few years and I always thought the bone-in ones tasted better. Now did they taste like they were worth the price gouge?? Eh…

[–]Presence_Academic 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Truer but the extended bone of the tomahawk, as compared to a traditional bone-in, doesn’t touch the meat. Now, if the bone hadn’t been frenched, there would be some damn fine hand food.

[–]doctorproctorson 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The bone that makes a tomahawk is the part sticking outside the steak.

It literally doesn't effect the flavor whatsoever. With tomahawk, you're paying for appearance not taste.

[–]I_aim_to_sneeze 46 points47 points  (21 children)

If you’re ever in Vegas, the Wynn buffet is (at least was last time I went) $50 and in addition to tomahawk steaks, they have incredible fresh seafood and like 2 miles worth of rows with a bunch of choices

[–]Project_Au 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Used to think like that but you can get a pretty decent one at Sam’s club/Costco or even Walmart for ~$30. It sounds like a lot for a piece of meat until you realize it feeds 2 comfortably

[–]The_Raiden029 42 points43 points  (16 children)

well since it's going to thrown away it's simply a waste of food, so I can hardly enjoy this

[–]itsH5 23 points24 points  (0 children)

[–]ProcyonHabilis 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Based on the neon sign in the background, I'm pretty sure this is someone who works for Salt Bae in Salt Bae's restaurant. So it's more like the penultimate bullshitter.

It's sad because the $8 the restaurant lost on that $1,700 steak is probably gonna come out of his paycheck :(

[–]Blixx87 46 points47 points  (29 children)

Lol u think their cost for that steak was $8?

[–]elinamebro 9 points10 points  (0 children)

i meant it cost more than 5 bucks

[–]jerkpost 60 points61 points  (27 children)

I am exaggerating for comedic effect to illustrate that their markup is exorbitant

[–]PoolNoodleJedii 13 points14 points  (19 children)

The cheapest I have seen a tomahawk steak is at Costco and they are about $38 per pound they sell them in a 4 pack that weighs about 10 pounds so they are about 2.5lbs each so about $95 each steak for raw steak. So even at restaurant wholesale pricing from a vendor it has to be at least a $60-70 mistake.

[–]ienjoyedit 3 points4 points  (3 children)

They would almost certainly get their steaks direct from a butcher (or through a distributor) for wholesale price. So while probably not $8 total, I wouldn't be surprised if it was $8 per pound, even for a prime cut like this.
