Steak Knife Restaurant & Bar - New Orleans
Seafood and prime steaks get equal play at this revered New Orleans institution, which has been around since 1971. Steak Knife Restaurant & Bar had to close briefly in 2005 when it was affected by Hurricane Katrina. During that time it operated from a temporary location, so fans could get their fill of signature dishes such as the seafood gumbo, flash-fried oysters and prime New York strip.
In its restored state, Steak Knife aims to be better than ever, offering an atmosphere that feels warm and neighborly, yet upscale enough to take business clients.
In addition to prime steaks, entree specialties includes the likes of fried jumbo Gulf shrimp, Gulf fish "Robert" (pan-sauteed fresh fish filet, topped with lump crabmeat, mushrooms and a classic Buerre Blanc sauce).
