Necessity is the mother of invention. For Henry Ford, inventor of the gas-powered vehicle, that necessity was finding a way to turn a profit on the wood scraps used in the production of his Model A. With some help from Thomas Edison, he came upon the idea of using them as briquettes for outdoor cooking. Now, the steaks at Downtown Grille (and Aberdeen, for that matter) are not cooked outside—but it’s just as well. Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right. Each one that comes out of the kitchen is cooked to perfection and accompanied by first-rate sides like baked potatoes or, at Aberdeen, clams, if you so choose.
