I posted this on the Manhattan Board, not realizing this Board exists. Someone there suggested I post here as well, so here goes.
I'll start by acknowledging that there are a million threads on NYC steakhouses already, but there is different info in all of them, and my question is fairly specific, so I thought I'd ask it here.
I'm planning a bachelor party in NY next April. We'll be a group of about 15 guys in our mid-20s, and we'll be going to a Nets game on a Friday night. We'll want to go to a steakhouse afterward, so probably for a 10pm reservation. We'll want a place that can take a group that large, and doesn't mind if we're a bit rowdy.
Ideally we won't have to travel too far from the Barclays Center to the restaurant, and ideally we'll be able to go out to bars after dinner within walking distance of the restaurant (but a short cab ride would be fine if necessary). We won't want to do nightclubs, but rowdy bars would be good, and a strip club in the area wouldn't be bad either.
It doesn't matter if we're in Manhattan or Brooklyn - we can choose a hotel based on where the restaurant and bars we go to are.
