Best steakhouse in Phoenix
i'm coming to Phoenix to visit family. I'll be near Tatum and Thunderbird. Any recommendations for an awesome steakhouse? I prefer it not be a chain. I'm partial to old school. Thanks
I was taken to Bourbon Steak for my birthday and was extremely disappointed. Maybe it was over-hyped, but I was not impressed by the steak or the sides or the service for that matter. For my money Durant's, Capital Grill and City Hall.
I don't care if it's a chain, the melt in your mouth steak of Ruth's Chris gets me every time. Either that, or if the facilities you're staying at permit, grab a prime beef steak at costco/aj's, rub it down with salt pepper oil and butter, sear it quickly on high heat on all sides, then broil it for 5-10 minutes in the oven, depending how you like it done. Let it rest for 10+ minutes with a slab of butter on top. Cheaper and sometimes yummier than all of the restaurants!
I would go to Mastro's Ocean Club. Technically, it is a chain, but it is super high-end, and the steaks are the same as the ones served at City Hall or Mastro's. Also, this is closer to where you are staying, as it is in Keirland Commons.
