I know steakhouse discussions have been beaten to death, but here is my situation:
I am planning for 5 diners, one of whom is from Italy and wants a New York Steakhouse experience, while another does avoids meat and generally has fish.
We want to stay in the central midtown area and these are the choices I have available:
Strip House - great sides, does fish well but only one cut of steak they serve is dry aged but in general the steaks have reviewed well
Del Friscos - good steak, attractive New York setting
Benjamin - excellent steaks - Lugar Style but the fish and sides reviews spotty
Wolgangs 41st ST - again Lugar style - some stellar reviews others eh.
Keens is not available and I don't want to venture too far out of the midtown area for various logistical reasons.
I am leaning towards the Strip House because it seems as if it is the closest to fitting the bill and delivers on things other than the steak.
Your thoughts and feedback are appreciated!
