Chophouse New Orleans - New Orleans
Chophouse is one of New Orleans' most prestigious steakhouses for many reasons. It serves only USDA grade prime for every cut of beef, and that includes filet. The steaks are aged a minimum of four weeks for extra flavor and cut to the exact weights shown on the menu. New York strip and Porterhouse cuts are trimmed of fat and the Porterhouse is authentic with both filet and strip sides.
You'll find only two types of fish here: steak cuts of sea bass and a local Gulf fish. By limiting variety, they move fish out before they can get old in the coolers so each fish is really "the fish of the day." Chophouse also boasts using U-10s or larger for shrimp dishes like the baked shrimp entree. There is a tremendous price premium for these giant shrimp versus smaller ones. And the crab meat cocktail is made with jumbo lump crab meat only; double the cost of regular crab meat.
And finally, desserts are always a crowd please, particularly for those who choose the gigantic chocolate cake. It's enough for the entire table and arrives with plenty of ice cream.
