My younger brother is staying with me for a couple of days for a little birthday vacation. He would like to go to a steakhouse (or any restaurant that serves a good steak) this Saturday or Sunday. The place should have a very good filet mignon, as that is his favorite cut of steak. I doubt Peter Luger would be an option this late in the game...am I right? (I know they don't have filet mignon, but he could have the filet portion of the porterhouse.)
What other suggestions would you suggest we look into at this point? Location and price do not matter too much. Ambience should not be too dull, it is his birthday after all. But more than anything else, a very very good steak is what we are after. And it has to be a place we can either go to without reservations or call today or tomorrow and still be able to grab a reservation. If not, maybe we'll just end up taking an early reservation at BLT Steak, which I have never been to. Who knows.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot for your help!
