What would you say is the best steak tartare in Manhattan (traditional and non-traditional)?

  1. i love the tartare at's cut in chunks which i enjoy. the meat is perfect. their fries are some of the best in the city.

    oddly enough, employees only has a great steak tartare...mixed table side.

    1. Can't say "the best", but I really enjoyed the steak tartare at Le Bilbouquet a couple of weeks ago. And the one at Le Caprice is also quite good - and the mayonnaise with the frites is one of the best I've ever had.

      Hope to try Employees Only one day.

      1. I don't know whose is best, but the steak tartare I got at a Restaurant Week lunch at Quality Meats was excellent. It was marinated in a spicy sauce and, therefore, "cooked" like a ceviche. Some of the other things I ate there were too aggressively salty to my taste, but the steak tartare stands out as one of the highlights of that lunch.

        1. re: Pan

          Just replying to myself: It definitely was not traditional, and was in strips, rather than chopped meat.

        2. It was traditional and very good at Patroon last week.

          1. 21 club. Cliche perhaps, but still very good.
