Cut in Beverly Hills is our new favorite. It's one of Wolfgang Puck's restaurants that open in the spring of 06. My wife and I like it better than Luger's in NYC. Being a New Yorker, I feel that Luger's has become a bit overrated.

I've eaten at the three mentioned by Katie in the original post, but none would be the BEST I've ever eaten, although all were "fun" places.

The Pine Club in Dayton, Ohio still remains one of my favorites of all times. I thought after many years' absence a return there a couple years ago might prove to be a disappointment, as often the experience doesn't live up to the memories, but not in this case. I sat and devoured that sirloin strip steak -- as good as they get.

I live in NY, so I've been going to Peter Luger's for over thirty years - only the original in Williamsburg though, not Long Island. Last week, I went to Wolfgang's in Tribeca - the steak was identical to Peter Luger. Wolfgang was head waiter at PL for many years and his son recently backed him in this venture - he has a 2nd restaurant on Park Ave S. I think I still prefer the PL atmosphere and German waiters.

Oh, and I finally got to eat at Babbo recently - they serve a steak for two - I tasted my friend's - it was sublime as was everything else that we ate.

Had the filet mignon of my life (wrapped in bacon) at a divey place outside San Angelo, TX; actually, it wasn't really divey, just simple. The owners of the adjacent cattle ranch ran it. If I remember the name, I'll post it, but it was 12 years ago, and the last steak I had, so... maybe not so helpful!

NewBe... from a google search, I'm wondering if it's Lowake Steakhouse.

The full list of spots we mentioned is here by the way: http://www.fodors.com/news/story_2967.html

I haven't been to a proper steakhouse in awhile---probably the last time was before a Ranger's game at Nic & Stef's at MSG.

I did have a great steak about a year ago at a steakhouse in Northern New Jersey... would like to remember it's name...but cannot. Any New Jersey folks out there?

1. The Hilton Steak house in Bangkok though, to be fair, it was kobe beef.
2. The Club Grill at the Sagamore Golf Course in upstate New York: the surroundings and view are pretty special too.
3. Billy Bob's Grill at Sam's Town in Las Vegas: three filet mignon with a variety of sauces - absolutely stunning and the cheapest of these three by a considerable margin!

I wrote a restaurant review of Cabana Las Lilas back in June/July 2004. It was posted on the South America forum.

I always recommend it to Fodorites traveling to Buenos Aires.

katie h,

you're probably thinking of the river palm terrace on river road in edgewater, nj.

it's very good but it's not peter lugers and neither are any of the others mentioned. i've been to most of the list. some are good, some are ok and some are just plain awful.

The steak lovers in our area all rave a restaurant here in Akron called the Diamond Grille--absolutely no atmosphere but everyone loves the steaks.

We eat there frequently. The restaurant closes down when the professional golfers come into town to play tournaments at Firestone--they open for just the golfers and their guests.

O.K. It has been a few years and things change as we all know. But, the absolute best steak--hands down--can/could be had at the Regent Inn in Revelstoke, BC.

It's a long story but the best steak I've ever had was at a breakfast buffet at a Shoney's in Columbia, S.C. Nothing will ever compare.
