Need a traditional NY steakhouse recommendation near Radio City

kam0424 Jan 3, 2011 11:16 AM

I am taking my fiancé to a concert for his birthday and would like to take him to a special dinner at a traditional NY steakhouse. I have done Keen's already so hoping for something else, but in a similar style. Great food and great service would both be must-have's.

    There's nothing like Keen's. Keen's is unique.

      Del Frisco's is a block away. Consistently very good steaks. Great ribeye. Decor is more new school versus Keen's classic old school. Can't beat the location and convenience to Radio City.

        How "near" are we talking?

          I can be flexible with the "near" for good steak : )

            I had a great meal, recently, at Club A Steakhouse. It's located on 58th, between 2nd and 3rd. Their bacon makes Luger's look like a strip of Oscar Meyer's.

            I happen to like Morton's better than some of the classic places, but its a "chain."
            Bobby Vans E53rd st.
            Maloney & Porcelli E50th st.
            NYC classics a bit furthur east
            Sparks E46th st.
            Smith & Wollensky E49th st
            Palm 2nd ave near E45th
            or furthur West
            Gallagher's W52nd

            They are all about the same IMHO. Ive had great and bad meals at all of them.

              I like Ben Benson's, and it's closer than some of the others mentioned here.
