Beware. Not the best beef..
You sit down at Black & Blue, ready to pay top price for the highest quality steak cooked just how you like it. But what Black & Blue doesn't tell you is that they're serving you USDA Choice beef (according to their Executive Chef).
This falls in the middle of the grading system (Prime, Choice, Select) and is the same grade used at chains such as Outback and Longhorn.
Top steakhouses like Peter Luger in New York and even some chains like Morton's and Ruth's Chris use only USDA Prime Cuts of beef.
Actually, among three top Rochester area steakhouses - Black & Blue, Prime Steakhouse and Max Chophouse - only Prime offers USDA Prime steaks every day - a 10 ounce Filet and a 16 ounce Strip. Max Chophouse offers USDA Prime occasionally, but it varies from week to week, so you won't know unless you call ahead that day.
Hopefully Black & Blue will someday step up to the big leagues and offer Rochesterians the best beef available.
