1 Peter Luger Steakhouse
It doesn't get much more authentic than a Brooklyn beer hall setting with old-school waiters and aged beef. Originally Carl Luger's Café, Billiards and Bowling Alley founded in 1887, the Williamsburg mainstay has earned its title as top rated steakhouse in New York for decades on end. With one Michelin star and a strict no-credit card policy, Peter Luger's offers a true old-world steakhouse experience.
178 Broadway (Brooklyn)
2 American Cut
Iron Chef Marc Forgione's 180-seat stunner is a TriBeCa steakhouse staple, complete with fine food and spirits with a convivial atmosphere and a modern-meets-art-deco setting. Chef's personal style and edge shine with a unique take on fine dining, offering signature dishes like a 42oz 28-day dry aged Tomahawk ribeye chop for two. Or one, if it's that kind of day.
363 Greenwich Street between Harrison and Franklin Streets
3 Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House

With 20 years under their belt and USDA prime beef as the menu's cornerstone, Del Frisco's offers a true NYC experience, perfect for any occasion. Wagyu longbone, anyone?

4 Quality Meats
Quality Meats presents modern interpretations of nostalgic dishes and flavor combinations in a one-of-a-kind setting. The prominent décor, by designers AvroKO, consists of beautiful white marble, stainless steel, and warm-hued wood, evoking the feel of New York's old-school butcher shops. The steakhouse is renowned for its fine chops, sweetening the deal with homemade ice cream.

5 Keen's Steakhouse
In a labyrinth of wood-paneled rooms, Keen’s Steakhouse serves the ultimate steaks and authentic mutton chops. The collection of prestigious banquet rooms includes the Bull Moose Room, Lambs Room, Lillie Langtry Room, and the Lincoln Room. Still not convinced? Let us also note that this steakhouse institution boasts the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world. The legendary Chateaubriand steak for two doesn't hurt either.
