The Strip House
The Strip House opened up in our neighborhood about 4 years ago, maybe longer. At first, the place was slow and you could always get a table. How times have changed.
The bar was packed and the table were packed last Thursday night. No surprises. I think the steaks are some of New York's finest.
Ambiance is very bordello like. Lots of red and low lighting. If it wasn't 2006, there would be a small window at the front which would open when someone knocked at the door to see if it was alright for you to come in.
Steaks are always excellent. Our dinner partners brought 2 bottles of wine from their cellar which is always a bonus. The corking fee is only $20 which is incredibly reasonable. We all had steaks. I started with a simple mixed green salad served in a crispy Parmesan like bowl, others had the Roquefort salad which is also delicious. All the basics. The ribeye is huge but juicy, tasty and cooked to perfection. We also had a side of the sumptuous truffle creamed spinach and sauteed mushrooms where you absolutely can not go wrong.
As far as steak restaurants go in the city, I always recommend The Strip House. The food is good, the service is good, the vibe is good. You can't beat it for a good steak.
