    Do you mean you don't want to do a steakhouse, or you don't know of any near your friend's place?

      Friend is at 80th and 1st . 5 guys in the party, money not really an issue, but not looking for fancy per se (no pun intended :). Want to be somewhat casual, fun, great food. Steakhouse would be great, do not know of any in the area.

        10 blocks north on 3rd is Parlor Steakhouse. Nice space, reasonable prices. Nice service. http://www.parlorsteakhouse.com/

          That's the one I was thinking of. Though we haven't been to Parlor Steakhouse, our daughter and son-in-law who live right near it have tried it, and they said the food's good.

            Parlor is okay, not worth the money in my opinion.

      What are the cross-streets of the apartment? How much do you want to spend per person before tax, tip, drinks/wine/beer? How many people in your party?
