It's a sad shadow of its former self, when Frank Giuffrida
would strut through the restaurant, bossing his friends and
relations, who in turn would boss the customers, who would
meekly line up to be treated to Abuse 101 and the full
stockyard experience from the victim standpoint and then, if
they were lucky, some of the best beef this side of Omaha
(remember that this was before the proliferation of Capital
Grille, Ruth's Chris, Morton's, and so on and so on). Only
one room was open, and I forget which one it was, probably
Kansas City, the others gaping dark and ominous.
And the cows are gone, aren't they?
