Fish at a Steakhouse???

I have to take someone to a steakhouse but I do not eat any meat but do eat fish. Fish at The Palm, Morton's, Del Frisco's, Smith & Wolensky and most steakhouses is miserable at best. Any suggestions???

  1. Looks like you've made the rounds of fish in local STEAKHOUSES! Why suffer some more?

      Here's a restaurant with very good steaks and equally good fishe dishes: Minetta Tavern.

    2. Can you take them to a non-steakhouse restaurant with excellent steak? Like Tertulia, Craft, Momofuku Ssam, etc?

      What about Costata?

        The steaks at Costata are marvelous but I can't say the same about the seafood (the selections of crudo or the lobster in particular).

        A non-meat eater dining with a carnivore at Costata would be better served with one of the many pasta dishes.

      2. I've always been told that the steak at Le Bernardin is excellent.

        Seriously.

        1. I don't mean to sound obnoxious here, but next time don't get the fish. Most steakhouses have a baked potato that is good sized, a decent salad or veg option and good wine. No fish involved. And then "next time" your dining partner lets you pick your favorite fish restaurant.
          Or,
          Like kathryn suggested skip the old school steakhouse altogther.

          1. I've never had it myself, but I have a friend (whose tastes I generally agree with) who swears by the salmon at Strip House.
