Great Steak in NO?

Visiting NO for the first time in January. Where is the best steak in NO?
From high end ( although no National chains please) to neighborhood joint. Creole? Cajun? Or just a great steak. Will be staying near FQ. Can you help a steak lover out?

Many thanks in advance

  1. La Boca. Look no further.

    1. I second La Boca but Emeril's Delmonico's has good steaks also.

      Emeril's Delmonico Restaurant & Bar @ 1300 Saint Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 525 - 4937.

        IMO, Delmonico's is overrated. I am neither a fan of the restaurant nor their steaks. La Boca's skirt steak is delicious.

        1. re: JazzyB

          I agree to disagree with you. I never had a bad moment at Delmonico's. Every steak I ever had there was outstanding. The ambiance, service and food at Delmonico's is outstanding. I like the room, the bar and Bob the piano player.

          Skirt steak is for fajita's. I never had a skirt steak that was not tough as nails. I don't mind tough steak as long as it's cooked in soup. I like a tender piece of meat for dinner at a fine restaurant. I'm sure La Boca has something besides skirt steak.

          Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Even Kibbles does not like La Boca.

            You've obviously never had a skirt steak at la boca if every one you've ever had was "tough as nails."

              If you didn't eat skirt steak at La Boca, what did you eat there?

                Skirt steak is not just for fajitas.

                1. re: Littleman

                  Though no longer a "local," I have to say that the cuisine at Delmonico was very good to great. The only rub that I had was the wine service, but then I grade very hard.

                  Have not dined at La Boca, so cannot compare.

                  Going back in history, Delmonico was not known as a "steakhouse," but the beef was quite good, when we last dined there.

                  1. Mr. John's is the best steak in the city, imo. all USDA prime cuts, even the filet. preparation is simple: butter, salt, pepper, chives to make it sizzle. the rest is ala cart; i go w/ the mushrooms in red wine reduction, and spinach au gratin. local, terrific service.

                    people love la boca but after sending an over-cooked american kobe back they argued w/ me about it for 10 minutes while my companions ate. owner never responded to a letter. never been back.

                    1. La Boca is in a class by itself.
