Hi hounds, I need advice on a truly great New York steakhouse that meets the following criteria:
1, Absolutely stellar meat but also very good sides and desserts.
2, We are celebrating a BIG birthday so I'd like it to scream "special occasion" place. All things being equal, I'll pick a place with elegant decor over, say, Keens or Lugers.
3. Anywhere in Manhattan, prefer midtown or points south.
4. Birthday boy likes correct, excellent service and we don't want to be rushed.
5. Money is no object.
All recommendations are most appreciated! Thank you.
