Any suggestion for an affordable Steakhouse in NYC?

Any suggestions?

  1. Depends what your take on affordable is. I say Del Frisco's is a great steakhouse, and bit more affordable than Spark's or Strip House.

    1. What is affordable? Pretty much all the top steakhouses charge comparable prices. Upper $30's-$40's for the steak, $8-14 for sides, etc. You can go one step lower to an Angelo and Maxies which will be a few dollars cheaper but not worth the savings. other ideas would be to go to a french bistro for steak frites or maybe try some of the argentinian steakhouses around.

      1. not a traditional steakhouse, but Azul on the LES is really good and reasonably priced.

          Seconded. I went with a party of four. We all had steak, shared a bottle of malbec, and got out for less then $150. Beat that!

            thirded. their skirt steak is fantastic, and if you go on sunday night there's a $20 special that includes salad and a glass of wine.

        2. Roth's on the UWS isn't bad (this is second hand, I haven't been there yet), and isn't ridiculously expensive.

          1. Again, not a traditional steak house, but The Knickerbocker on University and 9th, serves a fabulous porterhouse steak with delicious sides (including creamed spinach). The steak for one is enough for two. We're always happy with the food there.

              That's funny, I just recommended the Knickerbocker in another thread. I grew up in the area and have been going there with my parents since I was a little girl! We were just there on Saturday, (I'm 28 now) and we still love it! Had the bar menu, so we could watch the game.

                The Knickerbocker would be my suggestion, too.

                1. re: tsiblis

                  It's very good, but it's not a Porterhouse. Knickerbocker serves a T-bone, which is similar but has a much smaller tenderloin section.
