Best Steak House in NYC?

Decor and price are not important....just the best steak

  1. I haven't had it but three people have told me the steak at Perry Street (Jean Georges) served with some sort of fondue dipping sauce was the best steak they ever had. I should add that this is not a steakhouse.....just has good steak.

    My favorite is Del Friscos.....pretty touristy and very loud but they have the best sides.

        i actually really like the filet as boring as that is,
        its as soft as ive had
        but u cant beat the strip in my opinion
        love the goose fat potatoes and u cannot miss the choc layer cake
        ive had it all there and never disapoints
        love the clams app too

      2. Peter Lugar..nothing comes close

        1. Peter Luger, porterhouse for two, medium rare, creamed spinach. Steak nirvana. Get a sundae for dessert--I'm not kidding. Go there now.

            tomato and onion salad, their bread, and, I'm not kidding,
            a side order of bacon. Shrimp cocktail as it exists nowhere else.

            1. re: serious

              Actually, I think the shrimp cocktail at Nemo/Prime 112 in miami is actually better, but it is close. Prime 112 is coming to nyc btw. Steak not even close to PL though.

              PL is easily the best steakhouse I have ever been to. Go for lunch so you can share a burger as an app :). Maybe the best burger ever.

              yes, plus the potatoes. ahhhh--sooooo good!

            3. Peter Luger's, no question. Though we went to Wolfgang's for mothers day and it came pretty close!
