Need a Steak Frite Birthday Dinner (help) for tonight (Uggg)
So, I just wanted to say I am not procrastinate , I just did not plan anything because next year is a big birthday for my husband and I did something big for him last year... so this year my intention was to do something low key... and last night when we were settling in for the night he asked if I had dinner reservations for his birthday (tonight) and I said no... that I thought we would just go somewhere. I thought I was about to see a grown man cry.
So, I need someplace that serves Steak Frites (with a vegetarian [not a salad] or fish option), because I think a classic, heavy dinner full of saturated fats is really the only way I could save face.
Strip House, maybe, on E.12th off University.
The food is good there, and the ambience weird enough to make you feel like you're at a birthday without clowns, if you know what I mean [think bordello-mellow & easy.]
I'm sure the Outer Boroughs threads will tell what's good along Smith St.

re: Phil Ogelos
I love striphouse!
i also heard Keens and Peter Luger fry their fries in beef fat making their fries killer. there's also balthazaar too. Quality Meats may also have interesting sides and choices for vegetarians but I think the meat is lower quality than Keens and Striphouse. (probably PL but i haven't been there so can't say)

Les Halles or Schiller's for something that won't break the bank - I prefer Les Halles since there's a wider variety of steak choices. And there's always Balthazar if you want to go a little fancier - certainly there's an extensive non-steak menu there.
