Mastro's Steakhouse - New York
For some of the best steak in the city, served in an atmosphere of laid-back ease and sophistication, Mastro’s Steakhouse offers the food and the ambiance you’re looking for in a steakhouse. With generous offerings of seafood, steak, and sides, Mastro’s Steakhouse has made a name for itself as the center of the meat-loving universe in Manhattan.
Starting with seafood is traditional at steakhouses, and Mastro’s makes it easy to find something you like, with a truly remarkable selection of fish and seafood, including a colossal crab cocktail, Alaskan king crab legs or claws, oysters, raw and Rockefeller, sautéed shrimp and scallops – a separate menu section for sushi – and many other gifts of the surf will set you up to feast on the gifts of the turf.
Once we get to the steak portion of the menu, it’s all about high-quality and wide variety: you can have your filet, strip steak, ribeye and porterhouse in a number of sizes and preparations. Whatever steak you choose, and however you select to have it prepared, you can be sure you’re getting some of the best meat…perhaps even a “power steak.” “Business Insider” reports that they “reached out to readers, asking them to identify the best new power steak in Manhattan. A power steak is not only delicious but also comes with the atmosphere and company to match. Despite being new on the scene, Mastro’s won the survey handily, with two of its cuts — the ‘Chef's cut’ rib-eye chop and the double-cut porterhouse taking the first and second spots, respectively. Together, both steaks took 67% of the vote.”
All across the country, Mastro’s Steakhouse locations have garnered praise for their atmosphere, enhanced by live music performances that lend a supper club vibe to the sophisticated downtown atmosphere. To make everything even better, there’s a good selection of craft beer and cocktails (including some gluten-free options), and, of course, wine, usually the best red meat’s best partner.
