New York's Best Steak Houses

First let me say that there is not one single Steak House in New York that you could call the best.
There are so many of them. I’m talking about the really great ones. But to get started, lets start with "The Strip House" Truly a excellent Steak House in the greatest city in the world
You won't find a better steak anywhere than the double-cut New York strip steak served in this famous and almost impossible to get into Steak House. Make your reservation at least 30 days in advance and you’ll have a chance to indulge in this meat lovers paradise. . Eat your way through their exquisitely seasoned, tenderest, most mouth-filling, flavorful beef imaginable
But unless you have plenty of time to spare dinner this can be a problem here. You are going to have to be ready to wait about one hour or more past your reservation time for a table. Is it worth the wait? Oh Yes! Wait up front, at the old fashioned looking bar where the drinks are sensational and where your going to find guys in jeans and in suits, and the ladies in everything from mini skirts to gowns. The clubby looking wood-paneled dining room has that old steak house look to it even though this place is fairly new.
This place is one of the "hottest tickets" in town What draws them in are two things, one, it’s such a hot place that everyone wants to see it and try it, but secondly and most importantly is the steaks, you can compare the steaks among the best the city has to offer, juicy filet mignon, porterhouse for 2 or 3 or 4, rib eyes, and sliced steak bordelaise. There are thick pork chops and meaty veal chops, and for those who don't like meat, check out their mammoth broiled lobsters. I’m talking about lobsters that start a 2 ½ pounds and go up to 6 pounds. Sides are the usual steakhouse choices, although the creamed. spinach 6-8 kinds of potatoes, here they are famous for their crisp goose-fat potatoes. mounds of onion rings and salads that are the best you’ve ever had, toped with every kind of cheese imaginable
The steaks are cooked to perfection, they have an enormous wine list that will complimented the food nicely The wine list is said to be among the most extensive in Manhattan, and there are plenty of affordable choices and the service is always spectacular I can’t say enough about the service here, these guys know their jobs. And most of them have been with the restaurant from day one.
Oh just one more thing, be prepared to spend from about $125.00 to $150.00 per person for a steak dinner with a glass or two of wine.
