Origin of surf-and-turf

  • From the environments of the animals used in its preparation (surf being the sea and turf the land), chosen for the rhyme. The earliest-known published use is in a 1967 advertisement in the Buffalo, New York Yellow Pages, placed by a restaurant called Michael's House of Steaks.
