One New York City restaurant has decided to take the sour lemons of the Carmelo Anthony-Kevin Garnett feud and make lemonade. Inspired by the recent sweet and tasty teasings of Garnett, who told Anthony that his estranged wife La La tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios, chefs at Old Homestead Steakhouse have developed an exclusive new meat sauce.
Marc and Greg Sherry, the restaurant owners and the executive chef George Elizalde took a porterhouse 40-ounce steak and “made a classic French Bordelaise sauce infused with pulverized Honey Nut Cheerios and poured it on,” said a staffer. “It’s a little sweet. It’s got other extra secret ingredients that I can’t tell you about, but the Cheerios are in there.”
Another source of inspiration for the glaze, Anthony’s reveal that after completing a 15-day fast that he was in the mood for both a big juicy steak and a bowl of Cheerios.
So far, only the owners and chef have tasted the new sauce but the trio say they sincerely hope that Melo will be next. If he likes it and it meets his approval it will be added to the menu, according to the restaurant staffer. One person not invited to sample the special concoction is Garnett. When it comes to the Anthony-Garnett feud the Old Homestead Steakhouse sides exclusively with Team Anthony.
The restaurant staffer adds, “Melo was insulted and we want to help him. Garnett’s messing with the wrong town.”

Kevin Garnett went head to head with Carmelo Anthony over his estranged wife LaLa. Allegedly, the couple have been living apart for at least two months.

According to Black Sports Online, Garnett told Anthony, “Your wife tastes like Honeynut Cheerios,” during an Eastern Conference Game at Madison Square Garden. The star players immediately had to be separated on the court and were charged with technical fouls.
But for Anthony, it was not over. He yelled outside the Celtics’ locker room after the 102-66 Knicks loss and tried to confront Garrett again as the Celtics team boarded their team bus leaving the Garden. It took Madison Square Garden Security, five New York Police Department cops and New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson to diffuse the matter. Once cooler heads prevailed Anthony had plenty to say about the confrontation and dust-up.
“It’s something you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said following practice at the Knicks’ training facility according to the New York Daily News.
NBA sources say Anthony, 28, did call Garnett, 36, after the confrontation at the Garden bus ramp.
Anthony admitted, “I lost my cool. It just was out of character,” he said. “I allowed some negativity to come into my circle. It’s over with for me. Whatever happened… happened. The words that were being said between Garnett, and me it happened; can’t take that away. I accept that, but there’s just certain things that push certain people’s buttons.”
