Steve was a third-generation restaurateur at his family’s sports bar in Tarrytown, New York. Jon was a footwear executive who frequently stayed in Tarrytown on business. Every night, Jon would head to Demeter’s Tavern & Sports Bar for dinner, where he struck up a friendship with Steve. The tavern quickly became Jon’s home away from home, so much so that eventually the Demeters invited him to have dinner with them every night, right at their own kitchen table.
Over the years, Jon would invite Steve and their friends to travel city-to-city with him, and wherever they went, they had steak.
