"A mighty porterhouse steak an inch and a half thick, hot and sputtering from the griddle; dusted with fragrant pepper; enriched with little melting bits of butter of the most unimpeachable freshness and genuineness; the
precious juices of the meat trickling out and joining the gravy, archipelagoed with mushrooms; a township or two of tender, yellowish fat gracing an out- lying district of this ample county of beefsteak; the long white bone which divides the sirloin from the tenderloin still in its place."
~ from the writings of Mark Twain, while touring Europe in 1878
