Dan M. was at our recent New York meetup, but apologized that he couldn't stay long because he was due to meet friends for a massive steak dinner. No apology was needed, since that's a perfectly valid reason to skip out of a Sporkful event. Before he left, we had a conversation about favorite steak house sides. I professed my love for a good creamed spinach alongside my beef.
He's got a point, especially if the potatoes are a slightly charred to a crisp on the outside. /markPhoto: Flickr CC / dongkwan
