My favorite steakhouse cuts

As always, more stuff on the blog: http://ramblingsandgamblings.blogspot...

There are a lot of really good steakhouses in NYC. I have many favorites, because many of these steakhouses tend to each have a unique signature cut. Below are some of my favorites listed with the signature cut that I go there for and must-get extras that I've had (I might be missing some stuff though since I can't say I've sampled everything on the menus at these steakhouses).

Peter Luger (Brooklyn. Cab it)

Signature cut: Porterhouse (I prefer the "for two" option)
Extras: creamed spinach, German fried potatoes, slab bacon, tomato and onion, schlag

Keens (36th St, 6th Ave)

Signature cut: Mutton chop, sizzling porterhouse
Extras: jumbo lump crab cocktail, indian pudding, hot fudge sundae

Prime House (27th St, Park Ave South)

Signature cut: 65 day dry aged ribeye
Extras: caesar salad with anchovies, slice of prime (7 layer fudge cake)

Strip House (12th St, University Place)

Signature cut: New York Strip
Extras: goose fat potatoes

Del Frisco's (49th St, 6th Ave)

Signature cut: Double eagle strip, bone-in ribeye
Extras: crabcakes

Morton's (46th St, 5th Ave)

Signature cut: Double cut filet mignon, double cut prime rib
Extras: shrimp Alexander

I would love to hear about the many other great steakhouses in NYC that I haven't mentioned above, but I'm really interested in the signature special cut, not just "I like steakhouse X, everything there is good".
