  1. I don't have an opinion on Ben Benson's ( I liked the prime rib I had there a few years ago) but I think steak for two for 90.00 is probably the average price at most steakhouses, so it's not really a deal.

        Sorry, I didn't realize you were talking about the steak dinner for two. I assumed when you said steak for two, you meant porterhouse for two.

          Looking for best steakhouse special for 2, sorry I wasnt clear. Thanks

          1. re: wojiparu

            do you mean the cheapest deal or the best steak?

            1. re: erica

              Not cheapest deal, best value for a steakhouse.. I notice palm has a special, so does ben Bensons.

      2. re: SomeRandomIdiot

        This is a standard steakhouse deal - Morton's does does app/salad/steaks/desserts for two for $99.00

      3. Believe it or not, Benson's has an unbelievable Veal Parm. The best I've had at any restaurant, anywhere.

        I haven't been there in years (moved out of NY) but I'd bet money it's as good as ever. My frequent dining companion when there was a regular (his name was on a gold plaque on the wall) and he ate it a couple times a week for some years.

              This does and doesn't surprise me, wojiparu. Benson's has never had the buzz or cache that other NY steakhouses have. Always been big with the midtown expense accounters, but never beyond that.

              1. re: Mister Meatball

                Wow I guess you are correct. I remember watching a documenatry on Ben benson's. It always made me want to go. I am going saturday night, I will post my thoughts.

                1. re: wojiparu

                  Enjoy. Hope it's swell. I haven't been there for several years. Now I'm hungry.

                    Dinner for 2 for $90 was Fantastic! We had our choice of soup which I had the beef barley and my Wife had Spilt Pea, We both preferred the Spilt Pea. Than we had Amazing ceasar salads where you can taste the anchovies! Them we spilt a 26 oz chateaubriand which was great. We had so much left over we had chateaubriand and eggs, great Brunch!!! It was an amazing deal!
