Avert your eyes, B.R. Myers, it’s once again time for the unholy gorging fest that is the Beacon’s beefsteak! For $200, you can get your bare hands on an absurd amount of meat, as usual (1,000 mini-burgers, 35 pounds of crab meat, 75 pounds of shrimp, 600 lamb chops, 40 pounds of bacon-wrapped kidneys), beer (900 pints), and bourbon (36 liters), but this time around, some of chef Waldy Malouf’s buddies are getting in on the action; David Burke, Charlie Palmer, Tom Valenti, Michael Lomonaco, Marc Murphy, and other meat masters will man the carving stations. The meal ain’t cheap, but you can make back some of the money you spend by selling Rolaids to your tablemates. Besides, is there a more appropriate way to celebrate Fat Tuesday on March 8? Reserve at 212-332-0500.
