    Diner, revisit again. I so love my steaks and its so darn consistent. If you willing to go to New Caanan, check out Bonne Nuit for steak.

      You will not be disappointed in the steak at BBN. The onion soup or the tomato tower to start is also recommended.

      Never had a bad steak or meal there but pricy. Capital Grille, IMHO, is not consistent. Forget Chuck's Steak House.

        Haven't been to Morton's since I lived in Denver years ago, but I m found it formulaic and chainish.
        I may have to try again as they seem to be running a sale: three courses for two: $109. I'm sure that they find some way to a la carte you into serious money, and at some locations, as they say, prices may vary.
        But still tempting.

        Best budget steak- I'm not kidding, their kitchen is headed by a former chef at eclisse- is Bradford's. I know, it's a bar, and it has a blue collar bias, but their soups and steak specials are fabulous, and fabulously cheap. Currently I think they are featuring a porterhouse (angus), with vegetable and potatoes for $16 (lunch and dinner).
        In Stamford, downtown on Bedford Street. Just stay off politics when the owner is around, which is all day long.

          Ribeye, mushroom port sauce, mashed, grilled veggies, garlic bread.

            Okay, I tried that which I have been touting and it was not as good as I thought it would be. Second string cook, but still the meat was not trimmed, and the mushroom sauce had an a-1 tang to it. Nice steamed veggies, mashed potatoes, and garlic bread. Still better than bar food, but not stellar steak.

          The Delmonico cut at Capital Grille with the porcini rub, cooked to the chef's liking (medium rare).

            This is a really involved question with not that much info! But if you want a great steak, just go to Giovanni's Steak house on the Post Rd. in Darien. You can't go wrong. You can get just about any cut with all the fixings, plus they throw in nice warm garlic bread....awesome. Prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. Go give them a try!
