This place might as well be called "Quintessential American Steakhouse". It is what you would expect and what you would want. On one hand, you'll get the old-school feel of a men's club of beefy politicians and big-business power players with a scotch in one hand and a pipe in the other. On the other hand, it is contemporary in treating men well and ladies as such. They welcome all and are happy to serve. You'll get attention, satisfaction and no hovering. They anticipate needs and seem to nail them. You'll enjoy a sumptuous experience of beef, mutton or whatever you choose. Sides are spot-on and generous. The wine list is a sight itself yet you won't feel overwhelmed if you need a simpler choice. After some amazing dessert, take a look around at the historic artifacts displayed and their signature collection of celebrity-signed pipes. You'll leave very happy that you just experienced an American classic!Recommended for:

One of the best steakhouses in NYC. The atmosphere is very cool with all the old pipes hanging from the ceilings.
The mutton chop is their signature (and it's as big as your head and really good) but my favorite is either the Prime Rib or the NY Strip strip with mashed potatoes or creamed spinach!. The boiled baby potatoes are also a must have as is the smoked bacon.
The Crudités they bring you at the beginning of the meal is a nice treat and the dipping sauce is to die for! I'd rate this in my top 3 steakhouses in the country!Recommended for:
- Keens Steakhouse
This steakhouse has been around for over 100 years, and the Porterhouse and Chateaubriand steaks are two of the reasons why. Many tourists flock to Peter Luger's in Brooklyn, but the old-school ambiance and flawless execution on the classics (shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, creamed spinach, etc.) make this a great splurge.
