ISO grass-fed steak

My friend and I are planning a steak dinner for tomorrow and I'd like to have grass-fed steak, not industrial meat. Can anyone help with recommendations?

I'd like to go somewhere nice with a solid reputation for steak, such as Keen's, Strip House, Sparks, or Wolfgang's. However, I'm trying to change my eating habits and eat better food (yes, steak is healthy in my opinion); hence, the search for grass-fed meat. I'm hoping for some insight from chowhounders, rather than calling every restaurant and asking where/how they source their meat.

We don't eat out at steak houses often (especially my friend) so it's somewhat of a special occassion and we're aware that prices will be high. Since I'm picking the place, I'd like it to be worth the money. Any suggestions or guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  1. I know your occasion is probably past, but for future reference - Craftsteak was as far as I know the only steakhouse in the city that served grass-fed steak. Unfortunately it's been closed. However if you don't have your heart set on steakhouses, there are some options. I know that Cookshop and Five Points both serve grass-fed steak for dinner on daily basis. Some other possibilities: Back Forty, Mas, Savoy, and other farm-to-table style restaurants.

      Thank you so much for your recommendations! We went to Keen's and thoroughly enjoyed it but I will definitely keep these in mind for the next steak occasion. Slowly but surely, I'm hoping to eat better food.

        Another suggestion-if you are willing to make the trip to Williamsburg Brooklyn- apparently the restaurant Diner has good grass fed steak and burgers too.

          Oh yeah, we actually had a ribeye from Diner not too long ago. It was pretty good, can't really be compared to steaks from Keens or Peter Luger, but since my husband won't eat non-grass-fed meat, it hit the spot. Great suggestion! (if you don't mind crossing the bridge.)
