Best Steakhouse for Four 20 year old guys

My friends and I are looking for a good place to have a steak dinner after work to celebrate our new apartment. We all work in the city, and so far Kean's and Sparks have been recommended. We do not want to go to Brooklyn to go to Peter Lugers. What does everyone recommend, preferably stay near Midtown.

  1. Since you want to stay near Midtown, Del Frisco's is very nice on 49th and 6th. Had a great ribeye, mac and cheese, and creamed spinach one day for lunch. There are tons of steakhouses in the area (Smith and Wollensky, Ruth's Chris, Gallagher's, Morton's, Palm, Blari Perrone, Michael Jordan's to name a few) but I haven't been to many. If you are willing to go outside of Midtown BLT Prime is great.

    1. My favorite is Wolfgang's. I love porterhouse and Wolfgang's does it justice. Del Frisco's is also good, but I always feel like I am in Vegas when I go there.

        Gotta try Wolfgang's.... heard awesome things as well about them.

      2. Keen's is the best, BUT, it is really old school and 4 20 yr olds might think it's just too "old". If you want something a little more hip maybe you want to look into BLT Steak.

        1. are you 20 or in your 20s?

          id probably go with blt steak or quality meats.

              I can't comment on Sparks personally but it seems like, based upon past comments here, it is love it or hate it.

              If you are looking for something between the old school of Keen's and the new school of BLT Steak maybe you can check Frankie and Johnnie's. I haven't been there in a little while but I always liked that place.

                Downhill based on my last few visits there. Go to BLT Prime.
