Lincoln Square Steak - New York
Live piano music and a convenient location make Lincoln Square Steak the place to go before the theater for USDA prime steaks, and price breaks are appreciated by everyone who comes come through the door. There’s much to like at Lincoln Square Steak, including some exceptional seafood and Italian options, in keeping with the steakhouse tradition.
Winner of the Open Table 2013 Diners’ Choice Award, Lincoln Square Steak on the Upper West side is a throwback…in the best way. Emulating the vibrant décor of higher end restaurants of the American 1960s, and featuring a brightly colored mural by artist Giancarlo Impiglia, Lincoln Square Steak is luxurious without being too overbearing, and they serve up some excellent red meat.
This is another restaurant from the famous Selimaj brothers (of Club A Steakhouse and many others), and these guys know their way around red meat. At Lincoln Square Steak, USDA prime steaks include New York strip, Dry-Aged Double Eagle strip bone-in, and porterhouse.
So, how are they doing? Well, according to “New York Daily News,” the steaks at Lincoln Square Steak “could hardly improve. The house rib eye is a colossal tomahawk of perfectly charred, gorgeously marbled beef. Its salty, mineral crust is the perfect foil to the buttery meat. The more modestly portioned hanger was tender and lush with grassy flavors.”
As at other Selimaj brothers’ places, there’s a lot of attention paid to seafood, lobster, blue fin tuna, sea scallops, branzino and sea bass.
Sides tend toward the Italianate, with lasagna, chicken Parm and beef tenderloin meatballs.
To accompany all of this, there are thirty wines under $30, giving your pocketbook a break, which can be a rare courtesy at steak houses. And in line with that consideration, there’s a $42 prix fixe menu from 5-6:30pm (perfect for quick dinner before catching a show at Lincoln Center).
