Looking for the best steakhouse in Toronto

Hey fellow Chow Hound-ers
I'm sure there was already a thread about his already but...
My family's in townfor the hoildays, and my dad is itching to go to a steakhouse to get all those things my mom frowns upon him eating: the 24-ounce steaks with a lobster, the whipped potatos with butter, the creamed spinach dripping with cream washed down a big, lovely,lingering bourdeaux... you know, that indulgent stuff my mom is convinced even one tiny bite will lead to a shortened lifespan. SO, fellow gastrnomes, where would you go for that perfect steakhouse experience with the perfect steak to match??

P.S. I actually have a personal fav in the Tulip. But they don't so much do the Lobster thing!

  1. Well, if money is no object, try Harbor 60 at the bottom of York St. I believe, and Lakeshore (by the old Harbor Commission building).

    1. In no particular order:
      Harbour 60
      Ruth's Chris
      La Castille
      House of Chan

      1. harbour 60 first place

        ruth chris second (far second)

        morton last

        have yet to try the rest

        1. I'm curious if anyone's been to Houston's lately? I heard when they first opened up that there were some problems. Anyone been there recently?

          As for others... Bardi's and the Tulip top my list. Keg will do - average, but at least they're consistent.

          1. Barberian's is classic... great old-school atmosphere and you'll definitely be able to find a good Bordeaux..

            Very dad-appropriate.
