I am a Steak Freak. I've been to just about all Steakhouses in the City. Here's how I would rank them.
1. Peter Luger
3. Palm (Palm Too & Palm West)
4. MJ Steak House
5. Post House
6. Dylan Prime
8. Old Hempstead
10. Smith & Wollensky
I have never been to Mark Joseph, Del Frisco, Tuscan Steak, Gallagher, Ruth's Chris, Mark Joseph, and Les Halles, so I couldn't make comparison for these restaurants.
However, I do think that One CPS, Angelo & Maxie's, Malloney & Porcelli, Nick & Stef, Soho Steak, Rothmann, Frankie & Johnny's, Keen, Pampa, Chimichurri Grill, and Delmonico's are not at the same level the ten restaurants mentioned above.
Additionally, if I can put Del Monico, Prime, and Charlie Palmer's (Las Vegas), Gibson's & Chop House (Chicago), Manny's (Minneapolis) to the top ten list, Peter Luger will probably be the in top three, especially when comparing it with Manny's and Gibson's.
Just want to some of my Steak knowledge.
