Gallaghers Steak House, a 93 year old institution, in mid-town Manhattan was forced to close as a result of the virus. The owner had to make a decision on what to do with its perishable meats as well as all the special cuts that take 28 days to age. Mr. Poll decided that he would treat first responders to his choice meats. His chief chef, Alan Ashkinaze, prepared and wrapped orders for firefighters and police to pick up as a way to say thanks. All in all, 4,000 to 5,000 lbs. were given away that Friday at a cost of $50,000.
