Steakhouse for BF's Birthday - Primehouse, Quality Meats, Old Homestead?

hunnibee714 | Oct 5, 2009 09:39 PM

I am trying to decide on a steakhouse for my boyfriend's birthday dinner and was hoping to get some help! We both love dry-aged steaks - preferably the rib-eye or new york strip cuts. Neither of us like filet mignons. We've been to the following steakhouses in the past:

Del Frisco - Amazing ribeye, quite possibly our favorite steakhouse in NY
Keens - One of our top 3 steakhouses for great steak and atmosphere
Strip House - Great interior and great strip steaks - one of our top 3.
Uncle Jack's - Tasty and often well cooked.
Sparks - Have been there a handful of times and thought the steaks were good but not amazing.
BLT Prime - Maybe because of high expectations, but experience there was underwhelming.
Ben & Jack's - Not very memorable though I think the porterhouse was pretty good. Decor felt outdated.
Frankie & Johnnie's - Inconsistent. Can be very good at times but also quite mediocre other times.
Capital Grille - Fine steakhouse but not one that I would return to when there are better options.
Craftsteak and Porter House - Both were mediocre at best when we went.

The BF has also been to Wolfgang's, Shula's, and Robert's.

We like to try a different steakhouse for his birthday each year so I'm considering Primehouse, Quality Meats, and Old Homestead. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated! And if there are other places that I missed, please let me know!
