Best NY strip steak
where? just got a real hankering for a great slab of beef and a few stiff drinks to go with it. sides don't matter nor do desserts, but if those are good to, that would be like the icing on the cake.
THE best steak that I’ve had in SoCal was a 30-Day Dry-Aged New York Strip recently self-prepared at home. The best steak that I’ve had at a SoCal restaurant was the Grilled Bistecca Fiorentina several years ago at Angelini Osteria followed by a more recent Bone-in Rib-Eye at Jar.
Hmmh? The common denominator? All three steaks came from Harvey’s Guss Meat Company.

I've had excellent USDA Prime steaks from several Costco stores in S CA during the past few months. For those that haven't tried them, they are always packed in a blue styrafoam tray. My only complaint is that most stores pack about 6 steaks per package so they cost about $70 per package. One store put 2 or 3 per package which at least for me was much better.
There are those who may knock it as just a chain, but it's a high end chain, and I gotta say, hands down, the best value for the dollar and the most flavorful NY Steaks that I have had were all at various branches of Morton's. At least back when I was patronizing them, on the expense account, all of the beef for all of their locations came from one, central commissary, and the quality and consistency was always the same, whether in Chicago, Atlanta, New York or Boston.
I can still almost smell and taste that big slab of prime beef, a behemoth charred goodness, cooked perfectly medium rare with wonderful meat juices oozing on to the plate that I could drag individual slices of rosy goodness through.
