  1. Here's a very recent thread:
    There are several very good threads on this subject if you do a search.

    1. We love the porterhouse steaks and everything else at The Knickerbocker on University & 9th, and everyone we've taken there has been happy. You're not limited to the typical steakhouse menu. The steak for 2 easily feeds 3. Portions are large. Atmosphere is lovely.

        I love the Knickerbocker - great service, good steak and other food too (had an outstanding salmon tartare when I went) - love the booths. Not really talked about on this board though...Keen's is great for old NY ambience too. Enjoy!

        1. Try Gallagher's. It is very old and looks just like an old steakhouse. At the entrance is a large glass walled aging room full of huge cuts of beef that are being dry aged. The waiters are old school, a bit gruff and the food is great. No surprises, no culinary pyrotechnics, just straight ahead good steakhouse fare.
