  1. Both in Chicago:

    #1 A 20+ day Dry aged K.C. Strip @ Saloon Steakhouse in Chicago, the best steak I have ever eaten

    #2 An 8 oz prime filet @ Joes Seafood, Prime Steaks, and Stone Crab in Chicago. The steak was paired with 3 select stone crab claws, otherwise I would have chosen a bigger cut of beef.

    Both were cooked rare to medium rare, and were perfect coming out of the kitchen.

    I also cooked an incredible prime 12 oz filet @ home for New Years Eve dinner that was top notch as well. Hats off to my local butcher for that beef.

    1. Peter Luger, Brooklyn N.Y. Porterhouse medium rare. Going back in March.

      1. re: phantomdoc

        That makes two of us, I'm also going back in March. Even if other's say it's going slightly downhill, I still think they have the best steak in NYC.

        1. Not exactly "ordered" but the best recently was a 16 oz frenched, bone-in ribeye from Marin Sun Farms in Point Reyes Station, Marin County CA. (Washed down with a Stag's Leap cab.)

          1. NY Strip at Ray's the Steaks in Arlington, VA with blue cheese and cognac cream sauce.
