I am taking my boyfriend for his birthday dinner next month and want to take him for a nice steak. I feel like I've read so many posts and opinions about possibly every steak place in the city and outer boroughs and I am looking for recent reviews.
We're not going to Luger's so please refrain from going there. He has been there before so I am aiming for something new.
The places I've looked into and considered....
Sparks, Old Homestead, Dylan Prime, Keens, BLT Prime (but i went to BLT burger once and was not impressed), Craftsteak, Striphouse, and I think there were a couple others I was thinking.
Basically, the food and service are the most important things. Ambiance comes after those. I dont want too trendy and I dont want too many suits spending other people's money and not giving a shit about their really nice meal. Yeah....a $200 dinner is something I save up for and appreciate with every moment. :) p.s I guess the other people around me don't really matter. I just really dont love too trendy i.e Chelsea isnt my scene (I am aware of Craftsteak's and Old Homestead's location).
We're both 28, live in the Slope, work in the city, we're pretty laid back and we love dining out together.
Gimme whatchyou got.
