Alexander's Steakhouse - San Francisco
All-American meat dishes with a touch of Japanese flavor make this San Francisco steakhouse unique. Alexander's Steakhouse boasts four locations in Cupertino, Pasadena, Taipei as well as in the hot SOMA district of San Francisco. That right there lets you know what to expect: a modern-focused steakhouse with a nod to the classics.
Throughout the menu are hints of Japanese influences, from smoked foie gras with koshihikari rice, toasted nori, braised seaweed and charred scallion to an impressive number of authentic Wagyu steaks. As far as American steaks, the list is small, yet mighty. Featuring a variety of classic cuts such as Porterhouse, t-bone and New York, Alexander's specializes in Certified Angus beef grain-fed from the Midwest. The restaurant also highlights dry-aged steaks.
