Wall Street – Steak Tartare

“Wall Street” in the 80s? There are only two key words in order to make a break in this incredibly rough and chaotic world: power and money. And of course, success is the main dish of the movie.

Brokers from all over the world debate and Wall Street is their boxing ring. But there is one element that brings to certain success, and his name is Gordon Gekko, a sort of guru for the young New Yorkers. The protagonist, Buddy Fox, doesn’t let this opportunity slip away and, with one slight move, jumps on board with Gekko’s winning team.

There’s nothing more fabulous than two successful working men living in NYC, spending good money on food, clothes and whatever is in sight. Remember the mouth watering steak tartare? Gekko teaches his disciple the proper lifestyle, treating him to a fine dinner at the 21 Club Restaurant where the notorious tartare is served.

Watch out Buddy! Success is attractive at first, but he better watch his back. Try the steak tartare at home for a fancy dinner with your boss and colleagues: it will, surely, make an impression!
