Best steak in Westchester - that isn't charred? Regardless of price

With price as no issue - where can you find the best steak in Westchester?
Thinking about one where they don't char the outside so that it tastes like charcoal.

Where do you think the best steak comes from?

  1. The best steak comes from Peter Luger, either location, or the steakhouses in NYC -- in this part of the country, that is.

    As for Westchester, never a bastion of choice for SO many cuisines, regardless of price and the a la carte bogey, I would have to say Ruth Chris has a very good filet mignon. I like Willett House but many don't.

    If you are comfortable with prices that require you to get a second mortgage, you can try Mo's in New Rochelle.

    Too bad Ye Olde Tollgate is gone, they had good steak.

    Recent threads have pointed to Flames in Briarcliff, which is on my 'must try' list.

    1. Ye Olde Tollgate was by far the best steakhouse in Westchester (IMHO) , very sad to see that go. I haven't tried Marc Charles yet but I've heard mostly positive things about it.....
      let us know if you try it.

        I haven’t tried Marc Charles but I’ve been to all the others. I don’t go to any of them any more except Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse. It has everything from food to experience. I have no desire to go anywhere else for steak in Westchester. I can still taste the awesome rib eye that I had there this past Saturday night. Amazing ! I have watched steakhouse threads on Chowhound in the past and everyone will tune in with their favorites but I find this The Place and The Steak.

      2. I know it's not the popular opinion on this board, but BLT Steak has some excellent steaks - especially if money is of no issue. If you are into more of a traditional steakhouse, then this may not be for you, but if you are looking for a modern twist on steaks with much more exciting appetizers / sides then I think you'll be very happy with BLT.

            I've heard that before, but have not had that experience myself.

          1. What cut of steak? I question the whole "no char" statement, because I don't find, if done right it tastes like charcoal, I think it tastes almost sweet.

            I had a great ribeye at Morton's recently. Perfectly cooked. Nice char, and delightfully pink on the inside. My brother went to Frankie & Johnnie's and said his steak was amazing. I've heard very mixed thing about Flames and Willett House, but have not tried them myself.
