Our tradition to serve 'numbered steaks' dates back from 1870. It was a simple method to let the waiters know on what tables the dishes needed to be served. In the old days may wealthy citizens, journalists and traders on the stock exchange enjoyed the numbered steaks.
Still today, each steak we serve comes with a numbered certificate. The 'Steak-o-meter' in Maximiliaan indicates that over 5.8 million steaks were sold so far.
Should the number on your steak end with '00' (hundred), a bottle of house wine is served free of charge.
