What are the Best Steakhouses?
I'm looking for the best steakhouses in the GTA. I've already been to the run of the mill places like the Keg, Baton Rouge and Le Biftheque.
Jacobs & Co., Harbour 60, Barberian's, etc. A lot of high end restaurants also serve really good steaks, like Bymark and Splendido. I think there's a bunch of other threads on this, if you use the search box. Keep in mind that these places are much more expensive than The Keg, Baton Rouge, etc.
Many people become very excited at any mention of the House of Chan on Eglinton. I haven't been there in ages, so don't know whether anything has changed. We are talking aged USDA Prime steak here - NOT the "Jewish Chinese" food.
Since learning how to choose and age meat, and getting an infrared grill, I order expensive restaurant steaks only when compelled to by a group decision or when nothing on a menu tempts.
Hey B_y J___gay! Hah!
tjr covered it. You're looking at places that can get prime and above beef that is dry aged. Besides all the famous steak houses (the ones mentioned + Carmen's (garlic!), Hy's, Tom Jones, etc....), you're looking at fine dining restaurants offering dry aged. Splendido and Nota Bene both offer 60 day dry aged from Cumbrae's, McEwan's restaurants offer 52 day dry aged USDA prime.
Barberian's has the best wine list of all the steakhouses, ballersville though my friend.
If you're up for it I suggest you just get some Cumbrae's 60 day dry age, sear it on a cast iron pan and throw it in the oven until rare/med rare. Rest, slice, finish it w/ some maldon salt and it's as good as what you can get at these restaurants, minus the service.
Can I come over?
