Smoke's Big Rib (pictured above)
There's no denying what's on your plate when you order this dish at Smoke. While flesh can be ground, molded, shaped and stuffed into a terrine to resemble any number of things, a bone is a bone, and this dish is straight up animal parts. Make baby cow noises while you pick up the rib and gnaw at it. Your friend will stay a vegetarian forever -- which means more meat for you.
The Grape Burger
Nothing says carnage like ground meat. Why not horrify your vegetarian friend with a massive burger topped by bacon? While brunching one weekend I watched a small child become frustrated while trying to manage what was a sizable hunk of beef. I think there were tears in her eyes. For extra gratuitous anti-vegification, order yours with extra pig strips.
Meddlesome Moth's Bone Marrow
If a large bone protruding from a huge hunk of tender braised meat isn't enough, why not split one with a band saw to expose delicious marrow? Perfectly roasted, marrow spreads like rich, unctuous butter, cut with the tangy zing of caper-laden salsa verde.
