Harry’s is a classic steakhouse, but rather than old wood floors and taxidermied animal heads like at Peter Luger or Keens, it’s been renovated to look more like a futuristic saloon with an implicit dress code of dark jackets and white button-downs. The dark, underground dining room has suede booths, and walls covered in bottles from its very long wine list. Whether you go with the relatively small portion of filet mignon or the tender bone-in ribeye (the best cut here) make sure to get the perfectly buttery, whipped potatoes to share. If you want a more casual experience, get a bar seat in the pub room, and drink a very good classic martini.

The Shake Shack in FiDi might as well be Goldman Sachs’ company cafeteria because it’s essentially right next door and full of suits eating burgers.

Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
Keens is a Midtown steakhouse with tons of history, but even if you don’t care about Albert Einstein’s smoking pipe, you’ll eat some great meat.

4 Charles Prime Rib
4 Charles Prime Rib is an underground West Village steakhouse that should be approached with reckless intent. This is not a place to eat a salad.
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
