I live in northern westchester so I don't know too much about manhattan restaurants. As a christmas gift I wanted to treat my friend to a nice restaurant. His favorite foods include red meat (his favorite steak is a ribeye), ice cream, scotch (Lagavulin), and donuts. I narrowed it down to these three restaurants and I'm not sure which to pick.
I read some posts on chowhound and yelp. And I think these are must have dishes of each restaurant.
Craft-sweetbreads, crispy bacon, shortribs, jerusalem artichokes, hen of the woods mushrooms, and a pastry (probably some donut) with ice cream.
Quality meats-64 ounce double cut ribeye, corn brulee, portabello fries, and donuts and ice cream
Keens-prime rib, mutton chop, carrots with brown butter, creamed spinach, hot fudge sundae
If you guys have another restaurant in mind feel free to post.
Any input would be appreciated.
Happy holidays and thanks.
