    Just an FYI a quick search will turn up and endless threads on this subject.

    For myself Ben and Jacks on 5th Ave.

      What cuts of steak? Not every place has every cut or does them equally well. How dry aged/funky do you like it? Does it have to be a steakhouse?

      How important are the other factors like drinks, apps, sides?

      What's the budget per person before tax, tip, wine/drinks?

      When is this dinner?

      Out of the three you chose I like Wolfgang's and Keens over QM but you should also consider Peter Lugar, Minetta Tavern, etc. I've also had great steaks at non-steakhouses.

          Really depends on the vibe that you are going for. Keens is more of a old school spot for meat and caters to a older crowd. I like strip house as another option.. the vibe is cool and has some great service.

            I always enjoy Capital Grille and MarkJoseph's.
