You decide that your New Jersey steakhouse needs to serve a 22-ounce prime rib.

It needs a name, so you think and think and think...

The "Chris Christie" cut - oh, of course - is the new addition to the menu at Charley’s Other Brother in Mount Holly. It's $37.99 and comes with vegetables and potato.

Maybe the beef is good, but this promo is in poor taste.
