When the protein hungry carnivorous craze hits there is nothing quite as satisfying as a nice juicy steak. Solo or with delectable sides, here are five haute picks to keep your enzymes calm.
1 Peter Luger
For consistent quality and a slab of meat served at a size that may just keep you dining till the cows come home, it's Peter Luger. The family run business has been an institution since 1887. In fact, only family members select perfectly marbled, USDA Prime cuts from wholesale markets on a daily basis to make sure you have the best quality meat possible.

2 BLT Steak
When a French bistro married an all-American Steakhouse the result was BLT Steak. Enjoy a cocktail at the 23-foot zinc bar before settling down for an eye and palate satiating feast. Must order items include the Tuna Tartare, 22oz Rib Eye, Curried Cauliflower, Parmesan flavored Gnocchi and the Caramelized NY Cheesecake.
3 Keens Steakhouse
The legendary status rings true. After serving customers for over a century, Keens Steakhouse has perfected the art of the steak. Decadent dishes include the Aged Prime T-Bone Steak, Aged Prime Porterhouse, and the Prime Filet Mignon. History buffs will enjoy perusing Keen's collection of 90,000 pipes which include J.P. Morgan, Teddy Roosevelt, Babe Ruth and "Buffalo Bill" Cody.

4 Old Homestead Steakhouse
The Old Homestead has a comfortable feel like a broken in pair of Levi's. For a warm and toasty belly-warming sensation enjoy Roasted Onion Soup, Wedge of Iceburg Lettuce, and the 10oz Filet Mignon served with Herb Roasted Potato and Bordelaise. Pair with a big juicy red from their Award Winning Wine list.
5 The Strip House
For a strip in more ways than one, enjoy yours charred to perfection in a steamy atmosphere of shades of red and at black and white images from of seductresses at The Strip House. Business dinners or large gatherings are well accommodated in the private rooms. Be sure to check their website for the dining events, like Bourbon and Beef - Autumn's Perfect Pairing.
