Really like Gayot's Top 10 French Bistros in NYC - but how can you really list the top 10 Steakhouses in America? There are probably 10 very good ones in NYC alone (I really liked Bobby Van's was it - huge bone in ribeye that could stand up to anything and StripSteak in Greenwich Village is always highly rated http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc...anhattan%2C+NY )
and a number in Chicago - where some think the fabled Gibson's is down the list, not to mention Dallas, Portland, Seattle, Montana, Idaho (The Pioneer in Sun Valley for example http://travel.nytimes.com/2010/12/12...l/12hours.html serves a great steak - charcoal grilled right in front of your eyes). Washington State - and on and on.

Hey - there are 3 good steakhouses here in San Diego alone, and a couple more in Palm Springs/greater Coachella Valley - as well as Phoenix, and even several small towns in Oregon (where they raise Kobe Beef - see http://www.wagyu.org/oregon.htm) and so forth.

Heck - we raised our own beef where I grew up in Southern Oregon (Klamath Falls) and the Angus and Hereford were second to none - as we have the best Alfalfa you can find! It was so good (due to the volcanic based soil/former lake bed) - that the Japanese were buying up land/ranches in the area back in the 90's - so they could ship this premium "grass" back to Japan for their Kobe Beef.

Guess the Kobe Beef/Wagyu Beef Assoc in Oregon didn't print - but there are a number of ranches raising these cattle - with help from research at Oregon State University. Here is one for example: http://www.suttoncreekcattlecompany.com/

And Oregon Kobe Beef was served at a White House/State dinner for the President of Mexico.

At least the list stayed away from the omnipresent chain steakhouses.

Yawn. Any steakhouse list that overlooks the Land of Magic Dinner Club in Logan Montana (don't blink) is seriously lame.

I've been to 6 of the 10 so here is MHO

Alexander's #1? - not in my book
Bern's and Gibson's could share the #1 spot
Peter Luger and Prime could share #2 spot
Bone's in #3 spot

can't comment on the rest, but Alexander's would probably not make my list or if it did it would be #10 spot.

JMHO.

I'll agree about Gibson's and so glad there weren't any restaurant snobs in attendance when I last ate there.

You are having the wrong list, 2011. The good one which just got published is for 2012 at http://www.gayot.com/best-restaurant...uses/main.html.

Could you, please, correct. Thank you Sophie Gayot GAYOT.com

Mais Non! Good for you Sophie for being so diligent.

Again, loved your NYC Bistro list - and we wound up at a tres reasonable, traditional Bistro - Tout Va Bien, where they have a nice house wine - but also poured a very good Sangria (complimentary), but next time I do want to try at least a couple on your list.

And maybe get to Jubilee for their Sunday brunch and complimentary (unlimited?) Bloody Marys or Mimosas.

Merci Beaucoup.

Well, this makes more sense - the steakhouse capital of the country (Dallas) is represented in this list, it wasn't in 2011.

the steakhouse capital of the country (Dallas) is

don't think so

Chicago area has about 140-145 steakhouses

Dallas area has about 40

What's the steakhouse capital in the nation?
