Rare 650 Prime Steak & Sushi - Syosset
Though it’s known for serving outstanding sushi and other wonderful fish items, Rare 650 is perhaps the best place on Long Island to enjoy the best steaks around. For friends, family or business associates, Rare 650 is a perfect place to gather, enjoy some exceptional USDA prime red meat and sip some wine from an award-winning 850 bottle collection.
The Rare 650 menu is headed up by seafood plateaus and other gifts from the sea on the left side of the menu and tantalizing turf offerings on the right of the menu. All USDA prime and dry aged for 45 days, there’s a classic porterhouse for two, a 22- or 30-ounce bone-in ribeye, a 10- or 14-ounce filet mignon, 32-ounce T-bone, 16-ounce New York strip steak and an 18-ounce marinated skirt steak.
Patch reports, “With elements of the classic steakhouse mixed with a trendy sushi lounge, Rare650 has become one of the most popular spots on Long Island to drink, dine and mingle. While Rare 650 is not what you would think of as a typical happy hour spot, the bar opens at 4:00pm every day of the week. If you left the office early or feel like stopping by for cocktails after work, be sure to ask your bartender for drink recommendations and/or specials.”
To follow up on Patch’s recommendations re: liquid refreshment, you should know that every Wednesday, you can get 50% off any wine over $150, and that includes respected names you know like Stag’s Leap, Screaming Eagle, Opus One, and La Tache. It seems like nothing goes better with a big slice of red meat than a big glass of good red wine, and Rare 650 is making it even easier to get a bottle or two to go with any dinner you select to enjoy.
To sweeten the deal, Rare 650 offers the iPhone-based Good Life Rewards Program. It’s a kind of frequent diner program, so that every time you buy a steak or a bottle of wine or anything else at Rare 650, you receive points that you can use to get even more. You don’t even need a card; it’s all managed through the mobile app. It’s the future.
