A good steak is easy to find in New York. The chain restaurants, like Applebee’s and Friday’s (there are several branches of these throughout the city), offer a decent steak for an affordable price. If you are in the mood for an excellent steak, cooked to perfection and are willing to spend $50 to $70, go to Smith & Wollensky! Not only a great, dry aged steak but an impressive looking restaurant in Midtown East. Another location for a good quality steak is Wolfgang Steak on Park Avenue. Established 4 decades ago, they know how to cook a steak! The same can be said for Ikinari Steak too. At this East Village restaurant you eat standing up, at tall tables. I not only had one of the best steaks ever here, their sauce is amazing too. Finally another recommended place is Strip House. With a few locations across Manhattan, and a decent cocktail menu, you have the makings of a great night.
