Steak (again?)

I apologize. This discussion has probably been done before (although I didn't see it).


My friends and I can argue this for hours, until someone ends up with hurt feelings.

My brief analysis:

The best steaks can be found at Carman's. Also good are House of Chan and Steak Pit (surprising, given it's shoddy appearance and lack of sides).

Hy's and Harbour Sixty are impressive, but they don't focus enough on "the food". And, when you strip away the Versace-esque decor and obsequious but truly unhelpful service, you don't have too much. Morton's is good but, please, don't take that cart around giving an uninformative lesson in Beef 101 as if we've just arrived from another planet. That corny routine doesn't really even help a beginner to select a piece of meat.

I think that Barberian's, Senior's, and Le Biftheque are ridiculously bad restaurants. Reasons on request.
