Steak in NYC

by Troy McIntyre » Mon Nov 07, 2011 11:04 pm

Heading to NY, NY in a few days for a poker tournament and want the best steak the city has to offer.

Any suggestions?

Looking to treat myself and friends, so, unlike most times, price is not an option.

If you want Old School, Peter Luger is about as good as it gets:

For something more modern in style, STK in the meatpacking district is fairly trendy.

This post may have arrived too late for your trip, but I'm a long-time fan of Smith & Wollensky's, in mid-town Manhattan. http://www.smithandwollensky.com

Thanks for the recommendations.

We ended up at Peter Luger per Robin's suggestion. Robin, your "old school" description fits this place perfectly and was exactly what we were looking for. If you are looking for the newest fad in dining, you will be very disappointed here. This was one of the best steaks I've had. I also went back for lunch and really enjoyed their pot roast special.

John - Smith and Wollensky is one of my favorites from back home. When I lived in Las Vegas, it was one of my go to places. The Vegas location is in a freestanding location, which is rare there. Its a nice option if you want to avoid the casino hassle. I am heading back to Vegas early next year and can't wait to get their marinated cajun ribeye.

The food highlight of the trip was Lombardi's Pizza. Hands down the best pizza I have ever had.
