Does NY have good steaks?
I always think of NY as the place to go for ethnic food, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, etc....I never think the classic steak. But I heard Frankie and Johnnies Steakhouse is very good, affordable and has a neat atmosphere. Should I trust my reports?
Not sure why you dont think so but New York probably has the best steakhouses in the country. It certainly has the most famous in Peter Lugers even though I dont think its the best in the city.
Yes, I would rather go to NYC steakhouses than Chicago. Skip the chains. I repeat, skip the chains, if you want a NYC steakhouse. I would suggest, in no particular order:
Keen's, Peter Luger, Wolfgang's. These are all noted for their prime, dry aged beef, and the first two have long decades of history. Wolfgang's is a knockoff, but still good.
