Chain Reaction: LongHorn Steakhouse

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 5 comments

LongHorn's Black and Bleu burger offers a welcome one-two punch. The rich and creamy melted blue cheese has some serious tang to it, with the beef to hold its own, thanks to LongHorn's 7-pepper seasoning, which completely encrusts the patty and provides a super spicy kick that you'll still feel on your tongue hours later.

Chain Reaction: Morton's The Steakhouse

NYC: Keens Steakhouse Burger Delivers Plenty of Juice

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 14 comments

Despite $50+ prices for dry aged steaks at night (plus more for à la carte side dishes), steakhouses can offer some of the best lunch deals in town. We've previously commented on a few of Keens Steakhouse's lunch steak options, as well as the awesomely decadent Prime Rib Hash, and I'm happy to report that if you're into brick-thick steakhouse-style grilled burgers, theirs is a steal worth braving the dark, oak-covered, and suit-filled pub room for.

In The Midnight Hour: Wollensky's Grill

New York Zachary Feldman 1 comment

Like most steakhouses, Smith and Wollensky's is a power scene—a place for women and men of business to soak their stresses in red wine and beef fat. And though it's an impressive 33 years old, the space feels older, dressed in dark woods, cream tones, and soft lighting nestled into atmospheric fixtures—suggesting money as much as meat. But unlike most steakhouses, this one can go late-night. More

Lunch for One: Wolfgang's Steakhouse

New York Kathy YL Chan 3 comments

[Photo: Kathy YL Chan] I love lunch at the Tribeca location of Wolfgang's Steakhouse, a place that is very much out of my budget for evening meals. Lunch specials start at $10 for pasta, $13 for a burger, and... More

Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote is a wildly popular steakhouse concept in Europe, where long lines form outside—though I am not sure you will see the same thing happening in the newly opened New York branch. More

Did You Watch the 'Bon Appétit' Food Network Special?

Ed Levine 4 comments

I'll admit it. We didn't go out this past Saturday night, so I found myself watching the Bon Appétit Best American Restaurants special hosted by Alton Brown on the Food Network. The show itself was reasonably entertaining, though no one would call it suspenseful. Brown is perhaps my favorite Food Network personality, but he looked totally bored and disengaged on this particular show. Andrew Knowlton and Barbara Fairchild of Bon Appétit were knowledgeable and credible as the magazine's on-camera experts, but they kept talking about passion without exhibiting very much themselves....

Porter House New York

Ed Levine 3 comments

Porter House New York: A steakhouse with a chef back where he belongs. Photograph courtesy of Jason Perlow Steakhouses don't usually have chefs in charge. For example, who's the chef at Peter Luger? Or Gene and Georgetti in Chicago? Or the Pacific Dining Car in Los Angeles? I don't know, and I am willing to wager a steak dinner at Luger that nobody else does either. That's because steakhouses are traditionally not chef-driven; they're prime, preferably dry-aged meat and perfectly golden hash-brown-potato driven. Although celebrity chefs have gotten into the steakhouse game (because they love red meat and love developing concepts that can be cloned and yield profits with minimal oversight), I can think of only one serious chef...

It's Like a Waiter Wrote It

Augieland hits the nail on the head most of the time he writes, but his essays on tipping, respecting your server, and not ordering filet mignon in a steakhouse get it especially right. Augs, on behalf of food-service workers everywhere, thank you.... More
