But as an afterthought to that. Has anyone tried taking a good piece of meat and dry-aging it at home, and then cooking it right? And then compare with the big-buck steaks at a high-name steakhouse? I do it with roasts and thick steaks, and it comes out great. At far less that the beef houses. And potatos the way I really like them


I lay some paper towels on a refrigerator shelf topped with a wire rack. Lay my steaks on it for at least 3-5 days (I can't do it any longer) and the tenderness and flavor is night and day. I suspect that any longer for a grocer cut steak would be to have a hardened skin on the meat and at home that might be a problem.

    Is it still good? Or, do you have another recommendation for us in the same price range?
    Thanks everybody


    The chateaubriand was still great at Johnny's when I last ate there in June and July 2004.

        A truly great steak house, Kyoto Hotel, Okinawa, Japan. Kobe beef prepared on a grill table right in front of you. Super tender, great taste. True Kobe beef is really something too good to miss out on.

          Reply to Hillbilly. I tried the cattlemens cafe. A good deal on all you can eat, low price, but I thought the quality of the meat was a little lacking. Though for an all you can eat special they have to cut back somewhere.

            In response to Big George request for where to get great steak. If they are still around, The Haunted House in OKC. Prime rib and NY strip really good. Super service, mucho stars all around. Drawbacks, need to dress formal, make reservations, and very pricey. A definite good choice for a special occasion. A little known place set back in the woods. The restaurant is in a converted mansion. Great atmosphere, probably see many limos in the lot. A clue that its not cheap, and rich mucky mucks dont eat in dives.

              I never knew that they had an "all you can eat" at Cattlemens. The one I go to in OKC is at the stockyards, and their meat has always been their biggest strength. Are we talking about the same restaurant?

                For Hillbilly I seem to think it was called Cattlemen's, am I confused with Cattle Rustlers? This place had a steak or rib all you can eat special, or just order a T-bone, porterhouse, whatever. It was ok, but seemed they could do better. I know this is posted, not sure if I responded correctly. My other post mentioned the Haunted House for the best steak. I lived in okc many years, during which many people never heard of the Haunted House. They usually went to Sirloin Stockade, or Sizzlers. I hope i answered correctly.

                  For fans of Luger - just across the Brooklyn Bridge on the Manhattan side a couple of ex-Luger guys opened MarkJoseph steakhouse. It's on Peck Slip near the South Street Seaport. I've been to Both Luger and MJ many times and I have to admit I give the nod to MJ. The service is phenomenal and I have had the best steak of my life there. And they take credit cards.

                    Interesting. I went to MJ a few months ago, and was actually a bit disappointed on pretty much every front, as were my tablemates. But, sometimes you can't make a definitive judgement based on one visit, so maybe I'll try again. To date, I still prefer Luger's and Wolfgang's (the other Manhattan place opened by an ex-Luger guy).

                      Ruth'sChris, Pgh., PA. fabulous. they cook the very tender steaks in butter, they come out sizzling hot, the side dishes are fantastic, and the beef carpaccio (a app.- a pc. of filet pounded out paper thin, served raw w/ a garlic sauce, parmesan curls, and toasted bread)melts in your mouth. i usually get ribeye or filet.

                        The steaks at Ruth's Chris in Pgh., PA and their other locations, are mediocre at best. The steaks at Morton's of Chicago are in the same category. Huge portions, huge tab. Mediocre food.
                        When I go to Iowa, I eat what my brother-in-law suggests.....either USDA Prime Rib, a double thick cut "Iowa" pork chop, or Prime rib-eye or a sirloin steak.

                          Recently relocated from the Northeast to Scottsdale/Phoenix area. A lot of people here say Mastro's is the steakhouse of choice. Anyone have any recommendations for me?

                                    Another of the great San Angelo, TX steakhouses would have to be Twin Mountain Steakhouse just south of town. They put out perfectly seasoned steaks, wonderful grilled veggies and garlic mashed potatoes and a bottomless salad bowl..

                                    If ever travelling in the Missoula, Montana area, try Guy's Lolo Creek Steakhouse about 15 miles south of Missoula. Great Montana style steak dinners and a little history on the side since it is right on the Lewis and Clark Trail.

                                      Ate at a Korean steakhouse in Manhattan last night, called Woo Lae Oak, in the SoHo area. You cook your meat and vegetables on your table's own grill: filet, lamb, tongue, etc. Really good stuff. Not cheap ($60 a person for our group), but the six of us ordered enough for eight.

                                          Is this limited to just traditional steakhouses? Or can we also mention churrascarias, rodizio steakhouses where the waiters bring out various types of skewered meat (i.e filet mignon, turkey sausage, roast beef) in quick succession for all you can eat? If so, Brasa Grill in Cleveland hits the spot. Great meat, good salad bar, good tropical mixed drinks in the Warehouse district.

                                            Funny that you mention that place. Its old location in NYC was a childhood favorite. My family would love to finish off a hearty meal of barbecue with a bracing bowl of neng myun (Cold buckwheat noodles in broth). However, I haven't been to Woo Lae Oak since it reincarnated in SoHo.

                                              Up in the 40's (I'm thinking 46th) between 5th & 6th (Avenue of the Americas to you out-of-towners). I used to get lunch there quite often and I was no kid then either. If you're in to 'cook at your table' Korean places, take a ride on Northern Blvd from Flushing out to Great Neck; you'll find several and some are open 24hrs. Also try 33rd or 32nd east of 6th in Manhattan.

My family would love to finish off a hearty meal of barbecue with a bracing bowl of neng myun (Cold buckwheat noodles in broth). However, I haven't been to Woo Lae Oak since it reincarnated in SoHo.

                                                Ate at a Korean steakhouse in Manhattan last night, called Woo Lae Oak, in the SoHo area. You cook your meat and vegetables on your table's own grill: filet, lamb, tongue, etc. Really good stuff. Not cheap ($60 a person for our group), but the six of us ordered enough for eight.



                                                Up in the 40's (I'm thinking 46th) between 5th & 6th (Avenue of the Americas to you out-of-towners). I used to get lunch there quite often and I was no kid then either. If you're in to 'cook at your table' Korean places, take a ride on Northern Blvd from Flushing out to Great Neck; you'll find several and some are open 24hrs.

                                                Yeah, I've heard about the places in the 30s -- a friend is asking some Korean co-workers which ones are the best. Actually, while I enjoyed Woo Lae Oak, it's not really my kind of place. I don't especially like going to places where you've got to share food. Too many people end up getting things I don't feel like eating, and too many end up eating what I really want.

                                                  Okay, couple of good ones here in the NY area. Del Frisco's Double Eagle, near Rockefeller Center - was there a month ago, food was first rate, service was also - a touch pricy, but I'd go back.
                                                  On Long Island, there's a couple of really good, lower priced places - Major's, in Woodbury and East Meadow. They're owned by Coopers and Bryant, so they get terrific meat, but they have neighborhood atmosphere (and prices). Always good blackboard specials, good selection of draft beers and wines, and good, dry aged beef. Good place to go when you don't want to take another mortgage on your house to pay for the meal!

                                                    What do you all think of those ads in airline inflight magazines for organizations such as "Independent Cattlman's Assn", or "Last of the great Independents"? The places that they advertise look interesting, but I'll admit that I have never been to most of them. I like the 111 Chop House in Worcester, Ma., and I have also had nice prime rib at Chuck's (oops a chain)

                                                          I read thru all these posts, including several from NY City and I'm quite surprised no one has mentioned Sparks Steak House. I've been to Luger's and the Palm, both great, but to me Sparks is even better. Been going there at least once a year since the days when they were a little storefront operation on 18th Street.

                                                          I live in NJ. Someone mentioned Steve's Sizzling Steaks in Carlstadt. I went there with my family about 2 years ago and we all agreed it was just awful. They put some kind of Salty Worcesthere sauce all over everything, the waiter was totally useless, and we reeked of cigarette smoke on the ride home. Maybe they treat regulars differently. ---Ken

                                                            Speaking of New Jersey, I used to get a nice steak lunch at Arthur's in Hoboken. I recall the beer was good too.
