Steakhouse Stakeout

Ours is a meat-loving town. Back in the 1990s, the high-end steakhouse – defined by a la carte menus and pampering tag-team servers – took the city by a storm of 28-ounce Angus porterhouses. The trend eventually petered out, hit hard by the 2008 recession. Diners may have tightened their belts, but didn’t lose their palate for high-quality steaks. The 2016 arrival of Rare Steakhouse and the nearby, yet-to- be-built Westin Hotel’s steakhouse could signal a return to beef indulgence. We guarantee that our roundup will stir a craving sated only by red meat.
