The Manhattan Board has steakrules85. Does the Capital Region have a "steakrules" ? A poster who knows everything about steak?
This poultry and fish eater needs a steak restaurant rec for this Wednesday. It cannot be 677 Prime in Albany.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions. . . fdr
Some pretty-good steak, more or less south-to-north:
Hollywood Brown Derby
No restaurant in the Capital District provides the steakhouse ambiance of say, The Palm; Jack's might come closest. Only 677 Prime/Prime and Cliff's offer dry-aged beef (Cliff's is a roadhouse, not a steakhouse.) Prime is Saratoga's only steakhouse. Chianti has a terrific filet; Max London's usually has an expensive cut, haven't tried it. I've had good beef at 8 Tables.
On this list, only The Brown Derby,The Standard, Barnsider, and Prime, maybe Jacks are steakhouses; the others are restaurants that serve decent steaks. I've deliberately left Filet 7 in Latham off the list.
