Best steak and best lobster in northeastern Bergen County?

  • 5

We live in Englewood and are looking for really good steak not at a ridiculous price and honest steamed
lobster (don't have to be the same restaurant). Help.

    We always enjoyed ourselves here at Barcari Grill...

    1. The best steak value is the New York Strip Sliced Steak Sandwich with fresh cut french fries @ Dinallo's Restaurant, on the lunch menu, in River Edge on Johnson Avenue just off Route 4 East service road. It's a 16 ounce steak for about $22. The same steak on the dinner menu is around $35.

      For simple steam lobster, I would suggest you look for a Spanish/Portuguese restaurant. Most will have a Twin Maine Lobster Special from $20-25 with salad, rice, vegetables and chips.

      I'm not a fan, but there's a place in Maywood called Seafood Gourmet that others like. Last time I was there, a single 1 1/4 pound steamed Main Lobster was $24.

      The best lobster deals are probably had in the Ironbound section of Newark .....but I would rather go to the Lobster Buffet at The Manor Restaurant in West Orange for my Maine lobster fix.

      1. If you're looking for quality, (You did say "best") River Palm Terrace says that they dry-age their steaks, the best method for this process. (See Tommy re/ dry-age vs. wet age).

        For lobster, Newark-type places will give you extreme quantity with mediocre quality. Actually, Oceano's in Fair Lawn does a wonderful grilled lobster at a reasonable price. Other seafood dishes there are excellent as well.

        River Palm has 2 locations near you, Edgewater and Fair Lawn.

        Oceano's, ironically, is only a few steps from River Palm in Fair Lawn.

          Try El Cid in Paramus for lobster. When you order the double lobster, you sometimes get three!

            That depends on the current price of lobsters. However, the steak at El Cid is mediocre supermarket quality at best.
