Best steakhouse for ribeye steak

Can anybody recommend the best steakhouse in Manhattan specifically for ribeye steak?

  1. I've tried many and I still love Strip House.

    1. I had a fantastic, utterly fantastic one at Mark Joseph. Some of the other cuts haven't loved, especially the dried out, football sized filet.

      1. Fourseasons,

        1. Wolfgang's
        2. Ben and Jack's

        Personally, I do not go to them, I go to the original that spawned them but that is Luger in Brooklyn which is probably off limits for you and the fam. They started serving ribeye last year.
        My compatriot who is about the same in taste(less critical a bit though) on steaks has recommended Wolfgang's(I think Tribeca location but should not matter) as surprisingly good.
        Ben and Jack's gets good feedback on this site, whatever that is worth.
        Both serve ribeyes.
        Ribeye is not the most promoted cut in NYC amongst the high end houses as you probably have figured out.

            I never tell a lie. At least not on this board.
            Not sure how much they stock, how often it is ordered, if they ever run out but they do serve it. Hope it is great for you if you get it. Nice to have another option.

            Why (ahem!) is Luger's serving ribeye?

              There is a shortage of porterhouse up to their standard it seems. At least there was so they started serving the ribeye last year to obtain more quality beef. Could they take it off the menu at anytime? Sure.


          2. Great recs so far but I would like to add Uncle Jack's Fred Flinstone chop. I had it a few months ago and it was one of the best steaks Ive ever eaten.
