For years, acclaimed chef and restaurateur Neal Fraser (of Redbird and Vibiana concepts) has been hosting Beefsteak events in Los Angeles. For the first time ever, he’s taking the show on the road and teaming up Director of Culinary Operations & Executive Chef Anthony Endy at The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort. The 10,500-acre luxury working cattle ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley’s Solvang, who was just recognized this month as a “Top 15 Resort in Southern California” by Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, will be hosting this event on Thursday, October 21, open to the public, overnight guests, and The Alisal members.    


In 1939, The New Yorker’s Joseph Mitchell wrote an article called, “All You Can Hold for Five Bucks,” describing a feast of epic proportions known simply as a “Beefsteak.” A rite of gluttony that waged war on the livers of politicians and gangsters alike, the Beefsteak thrived in the saloons and political halls of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The menu was always the same — sliced steak served on toast, au jus or gravy, and all the beer you could drink. Knives, forks, plates and napkins were forbidden. Sadly, the practice died out after World War II, and Fraser is bringing the Beefsteak back.  


The carnivorous carnival will begin at The Alisal with passed hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail and wine reception at 5:30 p.m.with partners including Frey Ranch DistilleryMulholland DistillerySaarloos + Sons, and Shaun Cassidy’s My First Crush 

followed by a sit-down dinner at 7 p.m. with an unforgettable feast from Newport Meats. Respecting the grand history of Beefsteak, the final menu will be a surprise revealed at the event with feasting tables comprised of 10+ guests in true Beefsteak style. Throughout the evening, attendees will experience a handful of surprise and delights—elaborating on the traditional Beefsteak experience with a ranch twist—ranging from musical guests and visual elements to experiential productions and talent, all to be revealed as guests arrive.  


In addition to onsite fundraising, 15% of each ticket purchase for the event will benefit No Kid Hungry, working to end child hungry in America by ensuring that all children get the healthy food they need every day to thrive.
