chowhounders, please, i need your help!
the occasion: boyfriend and NY resident of 5 years is leaving the city. looking for a terrific steakhouse to take him and his 4 best friends for a farewell dinner. we are a group in our late 20s and are looking for a festive atmosphere with great drinks and to-die-for steaks. price is no object.
1. would like to stay downtown-ish, i.e. no BLT Steak, and in Manhattan i.e. no Lugers
2. no cheesy chains i.e. Morton's, Ruth Chris
3. no Dylan Prime, as most of us have already been there.
thanks for the help!
