I'm looking for the best steak house in NYC? We are staying with some friends so we want to treat them good for letting us stay with them due to the Bed Bug issue.....
The Old Homestead blows, sorry.Ahhh Peter Lugers is over rated !! BLT Prime, Wolfgangs, Mark Josephs. Either of those would be a good choice. If your looking for an all around place you still cant be the OLD Homestead also...
True, but the classic steak house cut is the porterhouse, and the best size is the steak for 2.not every steak house makes each cut of meat the best..
I have been to all of em and i know my steaks.
Dino what cut of cow do you crave?
i finished the porter for 4 last time i was there) luger is known throughout the world for their prime rib actually.True, but the classic steak house cut is the porterhouse, and the best size is the steak for 2.
The exception for me was when the staff at Prime 112 in South Beach talked me into a bone-in rib eye...was great!
Sure seems you know a lot more than me, but I've been to Lugers no less than 60 times, and have never seen a prime rib on any plate, ever.i finished the porter for 4 last time i was there) luger is known throughout the world for their prime rib actually.
all the steakhouse who I sell to (i am a rancher who raises, angus, wagyu and brahman) display their filet as the house steak. they can be more creative with it. more often than not the filet found in a steakhouse will also be a better quality than the porter. a good filet will also cost more per oz than a porter will.
most in the industry go to lugers for prime rib more so than the porter as porters are more of a texan thing nowadays.
next time i suggest that you order a cowboy ribeye...also called a tomahawk steak...its a lot of bone but its the best steak that i can professionally recommend. most places dont have it on the menu but keep it...and if they dont know what it is...walk out.
but in the end its all about what the person prefers. what you, dino, or I prefer in a steak will differ greatly.
thats why i have a list of of who makes a certain cut of beef the best...this includes all the steaks from the old fashined american primal cuts (more common) and the new trend of the british primal cuts.
blt prime american wagyu ribeye. order it rare to medium rare (tell em lipstick pink) and you are good to go.
ribye is where the american waygyu shines over full wagyu (kobe) the marbling is a little more diluted so you dont feel like you are eating a bunch of fat.
i raise only full wagyu professionally but i do have a personal herd stash of american wagyu. which is made by breeding angus and waygu.
