SteakHouse in Manhatan

TeoHV Apr 21, 2011 01:58 PM

Hi there
I will be in NYC for the weekend of the 15th of May with my company, and after a meeting at saturday lunchtime, we are looking for a good steakhouse, not touristic place, but something properly american with good steaks, burgers etc. for a good price.
We came from London.
Any good suggestion folks?
Thank you for your advices?

    Hi TeoHV. Welcome to both Chowhound and the Big Apple. I'd say Keens is your best bet:

    Here are some threads on Steakhouses that might be helpful:

      Another possibility is Smith & Wollensky's Grill. It shares a kitchen with the S&W restaurant but is more casual. Still great steaks, but also burgers and that wonderful roast beef hash.

        2nd this. I like S&W more than Keens. do not miss their coconut cake too. My favorite steakhouse is Striphouse but I believe they don't do lunch.

          I had one of the worst meals in recent memory at Ben & Jack's. Avoid.


          Although not sure what a "good price" means to the OP.

              The food was awful, I mean every single thing we (a party of 4) ate. Including the steaks.
