So...what's yer fave?

 

I'm a big fan of Alfred's. It's like a 50's mob joint. Diagram of a cow on the first page of the menu. They mix a mean drink. The steak is the main event of the plate (skip the veggies. But you can't wreck a baked potato). Plus last time I was there they had free corkage on Monday nights.

 

I liked Acme. Went once. The mac and cheese side was incredulously swell.

 

But I just keep going back to Alfred's.

I went to Lark Creek Steak after a movie a week or so ago. It was my second visit. Throwing caution (and money) to the wind, I ordered a 28 day dry-aged usda prime bone-in ribeye steak - 16oz for $51.00 while my BF ordered a usda prime New York strip steak - 14oz for $44.95. We also had lots of appetizers (buttermilk biscuits, VERY mediocre tartare, a reasonable salad with pear, prosciutto, and cheese, whole-fried shrimp) and several sides (creamed spinach, mashed potatoes), and sauces (bearnaise and blue cheese).

 

Overall, I am just not impressed with steakhouses. For the price, I think you can go to Bryan's, get a *fabulous* cut of meat, and cook it yourself for a fraction of the price.

 

I think it is just something I don't "get" about steakhouses in general. The meat is usually a la carte and so every side, sauce, and accompaniment is extra. It ends up being a very expensive meal for what one is served.

Sounds fancy. I'll have to check that out someday.

 

I wanna make a pilgrimage to NY to eat at Peter Luger's.

 

Someday when I win the lottery or get a fat raise....

I have heard a rumor that Alfred's may be closing soon. I've had several steaks at Acme and have always been pleased. And though the food at HOPR is consistently good, it's to me the kind of place you go more for the (atavistic) experience than for the food. Original Joe's does well with steaks -- too bad they're closed at the moment. You can get a decent steak downtown at either Tadich or Sam's Grill. Oh and at Jeanty at Jack's as well.

Love O-Joes. Hope they open up again, soon.

 

I would never think of going to Tadich for a steak. I have never had anything other than the cioppino there.

 

Same at Jeanty...I'm all about that cassoulet. Resistance is futile!

 

I have never made it to Sam's. I'll give that a shot sometime. My sister was in there when the secret service came and cased the joint, then quickly ushered some dignitary into one of the booths. She didn't see who. Always wanted to take my mom there though. She's a big fan of sweetbreads, and they have them on the menu there.
