    Interesting list. I used to haunt steak houses before the last re-boot, and did a couple of the nouvelle ones- Craftsteak when it was in the meatpacking district, BLT, a few others. I was a Lugers guy for a long time, but can't really eat that way any more. It appears that Bern's is missing-they used to have a wine list that was the size of the NYC phone book. Steak of note: Beeman Ranch has a hybrid cow- Angus/Wagyu - which i prefer to a true Kobe or Wagyu anyway--that is phenomenal. Jeffreys of Austin used to serve it- haven't been there for a while.
    Steakhouses are really a "guy" macho thing- and there is a formula- the dark wood, the heavy suit crowd, and lot's of expense account types. Lugers was fun, at least on the '80s and '90s, because it didn't matter who you were- movie star or stevedore- the old waiters were surly to everybody. Every once in a while, I'll fire up a fat, aged, bone-in rib eye here--it really is hard to beat. Last time I saw Trump (who owes me a steak from Lugers), it was at a joint in Westchester that we used to frequent. Flames. Very solid place pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
