Striphouse: food is fine, but is decor offputting?

ronnie56 | Jul 14, 2008 04:58 PM

I am hosting a business dinner for four individuals visiting from Asia in roughly three weeks; They requested to go to Peter Lugar, but unfortunately, I was unable to get a reservation there for said occasion. I am looking for an alternative.

I have read the boards, and "the best steak in NY question" has been endlessly debated here.
Good steaks obviously can be had in many places. My question is slightly different.

I am also interested in a nice setting/ambiance, and not overly loud noiselevel (I hate having to shout/strain to hear dinner conversation).

At this point, I have made a reservation at the Striphouse -- but I am concerned about the decor being offensive or uncomfortable for the female in our group It is giving me pause. Is it just me or would you not want to take a mixed group for a business dinner at a place with artsy photos of women in various states of undress ?

If this concern is valid, I can also get a reservation same nite at Wolfgangs and several other places named here. Please comment.
