Tad's Steaks, Times Square, NYC R.I.P.

Tad's Steaks in Times Square is no longer in business. It was founded by Donald Townsend in 1957 on the theory that a T-bone steak, baked potato, garlic bread and a tossed salad could be profitably sold for $1.09. Coined by Townsend as a "steak show," for a tenth of the price of a fancy steak dinner at a sit-down restaurant, customers could watch their steaks being cooked with flames leaping up right near the front window.
