surf and turf

Seafood (surf), especially fish or lobster, served with beef (turf). Sometimes stylized as "surf 'n' turf." I've never understood the appeal of surf and turf, personally—I love steak and lobster, but their flavors don't really go together. I know a great place down by the beach that does excellent surf 'n' turf.
