My mom is coming into the city for her birthday this evening and I am looking for a restaurant that has a great steak, but is NOT a steakhouse. I had been thinking that Buenos Aires Restaurant in the EV would be great (they have a KILLER steak,) but it's not the nicest atmosphere for the food/money. (Personally, I recommend everyone go there for incredible Argentinean food - just not if you are with someone who likes a fancier feel restaurant for a big occasion)
I also have liked Rue 57 quite a bit, and even City Crab on Park Ave S...
Any suggestions of places within relative proximity to the East Side?
