the strip house is one of my favorite steak houses, along with dylan prime. good food without the old man feel of some of the traditional places.Good recomendations so far guys...... L&B Spumoni Gardens, Balthazar & Minetta Tavern are all in Eater NY's Essential 38 NY Restaurants
Any opinions on any of the others in that list?
yakitori totto is japanese meat on a stick, so you might not like it. the place is good though.
bbq is something american and dinosaur is really tasty. if i had to choose just one restaurant on the list i'd go here.
not a fan of chin chin, but i think i'm pretty picky about chinese food and not their target audience.
