      A bit farther east of Weezie's, pretty good steak tartare at Table 17 -

      More centrally, and I've never been here, but apparently Bistro 990 has good steak tartare

      I had a taste of a friend's steak tartare at Didier and it was excellent -

        I have had steak tartare at both Bistro 990 and Didier.
        Both were very good particularily because both make excellent frites which are for many an indispensible side with tartare.

        1. re: JamieK

          I have to second the tartare at Didier. He uses tenderloin for the tartare while many of the other restaurants mentioned are using lesser cuts. It is hands down my favourite in the city.

            I found Table 17's tartare to be really overpowered by the beets, and thus haven't ordered it since.

          1. had a decent one at Citizen

            1. Le Select on Wellington has an excellent Steak Tartare, you can even ask them to do it a bit spicy... love it.

                I second Le Select, the best dish of the restaurant.

                  Just fyi Le Select just changed their tartare from beef to bison.

                    Leaner and sweeter. How do they adjust the seasonings?

                    1. re: Cat123

                      I really enjoyed the bison tartare on my last visit, but had not tried the previous version to compare. It was so wonderful, though - and I am a huge tartare fan.

                2. I had some good experience at Thuet a while back when it first opened. Don't know if it's still on the menu now after changing to Conviction.

                  On a side note, you can also get raw flavoured beef called Kitfo at Ethiopian restaurants like Lalibela. It's served similar to steak tartare but of course with different mixture of spices. Very tasty & a different eating experience.
