Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse - New York
Located in an old townhouse once owned by legendary actor John Barrymore, Frankie and Johnnie’s Steakhouse has mahogany walls, stained glass windows and other accoutrements that set the stage for a memorable steak dinner. Winner of the 2017 Diner’s Choice Award, Frankie and Johnnie’s is a crowd-pleaser with some of NYC’s best steaks and seafood.
Pine Island oysters and Little Neck Clams are a fine way to kick off a classic dinner at Frank and Johnnie’s Steakhouse. But you’re here for the steak, right?
The selection is traditional and prepared perfectly. There are USDA prime dry-aged steaks – sirloin, ribeye, T-bone and porterhouse, for two or three – as well as a range of other meat options including double loin lamb chops, veal chops…and liver. Liver is not a common feature on many steak house menus, but it used to be a common feature on many family dinner tables. If been years since you’ve had a good slice of liver, consider letting the accomplished chefs at Frankie and Johnnie’s show you how excellent this offal can be.
Potatoes are the traditional accompaniment for steak, and Frankie and Johnnie’s Steakhouse might as well be called Frankie and Johnnies Steak and Potato House, as they offer a big range of spud preparations, including cottage and French fries, potato pancakes, au gratin, Lyonnaise, baked, hash browns, and garlic mashed.
For lighter bites, there’s a pub menu with more whimsical selections including mac n’ cheese puff poppers and F& J mini-burgers.
If you want to try to duplicate the Frankie and Johnnie’s Steakhouse experience at home, you can get packs of raw bone-in filets, prime dry-aged rib eye, sirloin and porterhouse. You can even grab some of Frank and Johnnie’s exclusive sauce to complete the experience. Good luck with that, because while the quality of these ingredients is undeniably excellent, it may be challenging to pull off the traditional Frankie and Johnnie’s Steakhouse experience at home
