Where would one go to find the best steak in Minneapolis or St. Paul

    Morton's IMO.

      1 vote for Manny's here (hand raised). I would recommend Morton's or Ruth's Chris, but those are chains, and you can find them in other places. Lots of other places have good steaks on occasion (if you find a Thousand Hills ribeye at Cafe Levain, order it pronto), but for consistency and excellence in overall experience, I say Manny's.

        I've always enjoyed Murray's.

          It looks like the TH ribeye is now on the regular menu at Levain.

          Depends on what cut(s) you favor, but all-in-all, Manny's.

            Whole Foods, Clancy's, Widmer's.

            Oh, you mean a restaurant...well, we had an insane hanger steak at Campiello in Uptown a few weeks ago. Best beef I've had in a restaurant in the Twin Cities in a long time and I've been to Morton's, Murray's and Manny's.

                Jim...does an insane hanger steak come from a mad cow?

                  The D'Amicos apparently gave up the location at the end of their lease.

                  I like Morton's for the atmosphere. I think all the steaks are about the same but I was disappointed in the appearance of Manny's. Hopefully their new location's appearance will match up with their prices.

                    Yeah, learn to appreciate grass-fed beef. Strip Club is pretty damned good. Had their NY Strip with the "Love You Long Time" sauce-- yum!

                    I gotta agree with most people here, your top choices in general are; Manny's, Morton's, and Ruth's Chris. They all have good steaks. Manny's is the place to go to "see and be seen." Morton's probably has the best Steak House atmosphere. Ruth's Chris, maybe a combination of the two.

                    Manny's has a 40 oz. Ribeye they call "The Bludgeon." I opted for the smaller 20 oz. variety on my last couple of visits, with no complaints. And the desserts, I went with the Brownie Sundae, which could feed three or four people.

                    Ruth's Chris had an excellent Porterhouse the last time I went. I'm guessing they finish it off in the oven with a stick or two of butter.

                    Another place that I haven't seen mentioned yet is Rossi's, in downtown Minneapolis. Last time there I ordered the Prime Rib, and it took me a minute to figure out why it tasted so delicious and different. They grill their Prime Rib, which was new at least to me.

                    Was not impressed with R. Norman's, nothing special. Same with Lindeys Prime Steak House, seemed to me to be the quality of an Outback.

                    Look forward to hearing which places you check out, and what you think of them.

                      Murrys, and Mannys are my personal favorates for overall steakhouse quality. I have to admit i enjoy the atmosphere of Mancini's however.

                        Yeah but the steaks at Mancini's are downright nasty. I felt really bad when I brought my husband there for (one of ) his 40th b-day meals. Obviously frozen and has that tell-tale powdery, mealy taste. Not good unfortunately..too bad, it is cool..
