Need Best Value for Steak and Baked Alaska

My DH and I want to make a trip to NYC for an exhibit but also would like to enjoy a nice meal as well. He loves Steak while I am craving Baked Alaska for dessert. Can you recommend a decent, preferably not an extremely expensive restaurant that would have the two on the menu?

    I'm not sure of restaurants with this combination )or baked Alaska at all) but I know that CH-ers who want to help will ask - how much per person including drinks, tip, tax (8-3/4% I think), and also the location you prefer.

      I did a quick "find a food" search on menupages, and these were the only two restaurants I found with both steak and baked alaska (which I think is almost extinct). I haven't been to Sardi's recently enough to comment on the food there, and I've never been to Swifty's, but I don't think either restaurant is especially well-regarded.

        Strip House has Baked Alaska on the menu. And it is one of the best steakhouses in the city. In my top 3.

          I think strip house will be too far from the moma. I found a place in philly for steak so I am switching gears and looking for steak and panna cotta, near the moma for 2 people at $100 total.

            Never went to the Philly restaurant, so I am exploring my Steak and Baked Alaska options again. Should I try The Strip House?

              Strip House is good....but look at the menu....probably over your budget...

                There aren't any prices on the website. Can anybody let me know how much appetizers, steak, drinks and desserts are?

                    Thank You! Definitely something to consider. I would rather not spend $100+

            Really, didn't see it on their menu at the website; do you know if they had a recently?

            Now it is expensive but it is the definitive restaurant for Baked Alaska and their presentation is lovely. We had lunch at Delmonico's last Thursday (seared foie gras, lobster newburg and a New York strip steak) and if you can swing it this would meet your culinary criteria! It claims to be the first place in NY to served Baked Alaska and it is wonderful!
