3 Best Steakhouses in New York City
It's not everyday we get to eat steak (or at least I don't). If you are craving for steak in New York City, though, it will be kind of hard to choose which restaurant to go, since steakhouses have become a dime a dozen.
Not all of them can serve perfect melt-in-your-mouth steaks, though, so it best to choose wisely. To help narrow down the choices for you, below are the three best steakhouses in New York City that have been raved over and over again.
Delmonico's is one of the oldest restaurants in New York City today, but this does not mean their steaks can ever be overrated with age. It's also the first-ever fine-dining restaurant in NYC, so it'll always be a whole new level to be able to say you have tasted its stakes. The company is not just a hype, though. It seems that with age, the restaurant is continuing to show why it's still thriving in the business, attracting new fans and loyal customers alike.
According to Billy Oliva of Insider, Delmonico's played a huge role in making steak what it is today. Way back in the 1800s, the Delmonico brothers were butchering meat out in the street and learning the trade through experience. Now it has boneless ribeye that can make people forget their names.
This year, Delmonico's steakhouse even has plans to open a Times Square outpost at the Cachet Boutique New York Hotel. The restaurant already signed a 15-year lease for 20,000 square feet at the base of the 105-room hotel located at 510 West 42nd Street, so there is no more stopping it from attracting more steak lovers. According to CoStar Group data, the company's rent on this new location is nothing to scoff at since it amounts to $1.2 million a year. But with the company's sought-after steaks, this is not a problem.
Peter Luger is iconic. The company has its fair share of controversies and bad reviews, but nobody can still deny it's an absolute experience to be able to have dined here and eat their steak. The steakhouse reportedly has been around for centuries, but it shows no sign of vanishing soon.
Fans would say it is arguably one of the best steaks out there today. The porterhouse for two is a must-try, regardless if you have a companion or not. Reviewers said the steak is a bit charred and crunchy on the side, but the insides just melt in the mouth, making it a joy to eat.
Even if the pandemic is relentless and restaurants are affected gravely, the company is quite resilient. It was recently reported that when restaurants are allowed to return but only to serve 35% of clients, Peter Luger placed statues from Madame Tussaud's to make people feel better eating alone.
Keens has existed since 1885. It is already an institution among restaurants cooking steaks. The steaks are cooked as flavorful as possible, and if you still have room in your stomach, their mutton chops are to die for.
Apart from its steaks, muttons, and lamb offerings, the company is known for having lavish wallpapers and interior designs.
