The steaks at Harmons are much better, which they should be for price difference.

I would recommend talking with a local restaurateur about buying from them. The prices they get are far superior to the grocery store and butcher prices (in most circumstances) and if they can make a couple of bucks off of you just for placing a phone call, they will probably be very happy. I don't know the state to state legality of this, but it is worth a shot. Another bonus of buying from a restaurant is hermetically sealed packaging. I can keep my steaks on the shelf for a minimum of 28 days (as long as they don't have a bone and the packaging isn't damaged). You don't dare try that with a saran wrapped grocery store steak.
