Best Bone in Ribeye or filet

kjrumley Oct 28, 2009 12:12 PM

This is my 1st post so I hope I'm doing this right! I have read several reviews of restaurants here but couldn't find exactly what I wanted. My husband and I are headed into the city this weekend and want a GREAT steak. Love bone in cuts... We are staying in Mid-town but would travel a bit if needed. Would like to keep the total bill < $200. Also like great martinis and wine and a nice ambiance wouldn't hurt! Thanks for your help!

      As I've said a bunch of times, all the top steakhouses in NY charge around the same price, about $35-$40 per person just for steak (literally a steak on a plate). Then figure around $8-10 for sides.
      My favorite ribeye is at BLT Prime (get it without the butter on top).

        65 day dry aged ribeye from Primehouse NY. Spectacular, not overly expensive, good ambiance and location.

            Oh it's an experience alright. But the food isn't very good... and definitely not the steak. You're paying for a lot of schmaltz (literal and figurative) with Sammy's.

            Bring an appetite and go to Morton's on 5th Avenue (212)972-3315. I haven't been in this location but have dined in the Toronto restaurant several times - very good, but all ala carte and may over run your budget. Try the gigantic porterhouse for 2 . They serve it tableside, and carve it for you.....

            The Don Shula's at the Westin Times Square is "average", but very cool decor if you're a football fan.
