Birthday Dinner: In Search Of Filet Mignon, Friendly Service
I need some help deciding where to go for my birthday dinner! I've read tons of posts on the best steakhouses and I think I've decided that Strip House is my top choice (I'm a sucker for chocolate cake!), but I was curious if there's a non-steakhouse restaurant that might be a good choice. The only thing Strip House doesn't match for me is the sides- I love mashed potatoes and they don't have 'em. I'd really appreciate any suggestions you have!
Strip House is great choice. You'll forget you're missing mashed potatoes when you try their goose fat potatoes!
Just beware they tend to back up a little bit past your reservation time.
My first suggestion is that you eat rib eye or porterhouse rather than a filet. My second suggestion is that you go to peter lugers.
The filet at Dylan Prime was delicious. I've ordered it twice and never been disappointed. I find the restaurant to have a lot more choices than a typical steakhouse (it has a great fondue as an appetizer!).
