steak or italian in Bergen County for Xmas eve?

rubenhan | Dec 21, 2010 06:09 PM


I'm looking for a restaurant that can either be a steakhouse or an italian restaurant in Bergen County, hopefully in the vicinity of Palisades Park, Fort Lee, Edgewater, Paramus, and Teaneck.

My party is 3 people.

I've looked into River Palm Terrace in Edgewater and Prime & Beyond in Fort Lee, but we are skeptical at this point because 1) we are rather picky with meat being raised in South America for 13 years and 2) we were always disappointed by the steaks at the major famous steak houses in Manhattan including Keen, Uncle Jack, Del Frisco, and many others. The only steakhouse that was consistently good was Peter Luger in Brooklyn.

So we are kind of scared to try a new steakhouse because we got burned a few times even after doling out a few hundred dollars.

So my question is, is there a steakhouse in NJ that is worth paying that much money?

Or would we be better off finding an italian place? If it is, which Italian place would you recommend?

I'm looking into Di Palma, BV Tuscany at this point.

Thank you.
