Steak au Poivre

  • j

Okay, I checked the boards, searched a number of terms, and found almost nothing on this dish, so here goes:

Where's the best Steak au Poivre in NYC? Keep in mind, please, that I like my sauce with a little heat.

And let me know if this question has been answered elsewhere and point me in the right direction.

  1. I always liked the steak au p. at Les halles (but haven't been ther in about 6 months). I also have friends who swear by the version made at Smith & Wollensky.

      A different animal, perhaps, a creamy comfort-food beast, but I have always liked the pepper steak at Florent.

        I really liked the Filet Mignon au Poivre at Le Bonne Soupe with cognac sauce. This combined with their french onion soup is a killer meal...


        1. re: Jason Perlow

          The online menu for La Bonne Soupe shows the filet mignon au poivre to be $18.95 (quite reasonable) but it also shows the onion soup to be $12.95 which does not jive with the $19 filet mignon. What's in their onion soup for that price?

            Raouls makes me a wonderful "french" steak au poivre.
            With a side of frites. A glass of wine and some creme brulee for dessert.
            A cardiologists dream! :~)

              If my memory serves, the $12.95 onion soup is part of a prix fixe: salad, soup, dessert, and either a glass of wine or cup of coffee. I'm not sure if that's the exact deal, but I know that whatever deal there is it is available with a few other soups, too.
