A quick list....
Rothmans - One of the best in Manhattan, they do not get enough credit. There isnt as much charm to the place like the palm or old homestead, but they just never get it wrong. Best bone-in ribeye in the city. At least you can smoke outside too. 9/10
Bobby Vans - Great steaks, great sides, real old school menu, the way it should be, great wine list. Always the best cuts. 8.5/10
Old Homestead - The original in Gotham. Lots of charm here, old school menu, great cuts, there is just something missing for me though. They do have the $40 burger tho... 8/10
Wolfgangs - Peter Luger in New York, but not quite as good. They char a little bit too much for my tastes 7.5/10
The Palm - There are about a million of them, 3 in the city alone. Eat at the original if you are going to go to any (even the palm too is accaptable to me, but dont go to the one on the dity west side, there is no charm at that one). The meat is good, the sides are good, the lobster is good, but its nothing amazing. 7/10
Smith and Wollensky - I live right around the corner from this place, and I have been here twice, that should say enough. Not much charm, the food is good, but its nothing amazing. When your in walking distance of about 5 other top notch steakhouse, its hard to show up here 6/10
Mortons - Eh, its good, but come on. Ive actually had some fantastic steaks here, but being in Manhattan, and eating at an international chain just hurts for some reason. At least the palm and s/w started in NY. There is ZERO charm here. 5.5/10
Uncle Jacks Steakhouse - Easily the worst steakhouse Ive been to in my life Black on the outside, blue on the inside. Everything was just bad, from the steak sauce on down. Never, ever, ever eat here. 2/10
And remember kids, real men eat Bone-in Ribeyes. That is by FAR the best cut of meat. A fillet may be tender, but there is no flavor.
Post.Script - Who no lugers?
