Old Homestead Steakhouse - New York

The landscape in the former Meatpacking District has changed, but the iconic steakhouse known as Old Homestead continues to crank out prime aged USDA Texas-size slabs of beef. The restaurant, which has been around since 1868, specializes in sirloin, porterhouse or filet mignon, but also non-steak dishes like Colorado rack of lamb, grilled chicken and crabmeat-stuffed shrimp.

Those looking for something extra special may indulge in a 12 ounce Japanese Kobe beef that's $350. The delicacy doesn't come with sides, but the menu offers a number of appropriate accompaniments such as sauteed mushroom caps, a truffle butter baked potato and garlic mashed potatoes.
