Traditional Steak House

We live in Jersey, and in the past for my birthday we used to celebrate at a steakhouse that was reccommended here some years ago: Mignon in Rutherford. Sadly, the restaruant is now gone, and though we tried other steak houses in NJ, my wife wants to treat me to a real traditional steak house in NYC. I've heard of the usual places like Smith & Wollensky, Sparks, Peter Luger, and we'd like to try one of them. Although any other suggestion would be appreciated.

  1. Keen's is the front runner here. It's a fantastic steak in a great space with a real traditional feel. sadly, i've never been to Peter Luger.

    1. When is the birthday? Luger books up well in advance (several weeks).

      In Manhattan, I like Wolfgang's and Keens for an old school feel.

      1. Keens, and maybe Benjamin or Club A.
