Best Steakhouse on Long Island

by Best Of Long Island on January 5, 2010

There are few pleasures in life that come close to comparing with the sophisticated taste, juicy texture and melt-in-your-mouth tenderness of a top-notch, dry-aged prime cut of beef cooked medium rare at a high-end steakhouse. It’s a pleasure you should really enjoy at one of the best Steakhouses on Long Island.

Peter Luger in Great Neck Won Best Steakhouse on Long Island!

Peter Luger
255 Northern Blvd.
Great Neck

In a time when steakhouses seem to branch out to every city and casino, Long Island steak lovers know we are blessed to have the only sibling of the 1887 Brooklyn institution. In the past decade, legions of imitators have attempted to copy their signature dry-aged porterhouse but none come close. That’s because Luger’s carefully selects only the finest USDA prime beef, which is dry-aged in temperature-controlled coolers at the Brooklyn store. You don’t even need to scan the menu. Get the signature porterhouse, a plate of broiled hash browns and cream spinach…and pity the silly vegetarians.

2nd Place – Blackstone Steakhouse, 10 Pinelawn Rd., Melville. 631-271-7780. www.blackstonesteakhouse.com

A hot new place to be for an intimate lunch or dinner or even just a gathering after work. Favorites include their Kobe beef appetizer served on a sizzling stone, their spectacular seafood tower built with fresh Alaskan king crab legs, and other delectable delights.  There is also their classic steakhouse favorites that include mouthwatering filet mignon, tender prime rib and thick, juicy Porterhouse steak grilled to perfection.

3rd Place – Bryant Cooper, 2 Middle Neck Rd., Roslyn. 516-627-7270. www.bryantandcooper.com

The energy of the people in the restaurant gives high expectations that your meal will be memorable.  With fresh bread at the table to start with, it’s just beginning.  There’s the succulent sirloin, amazingly tender filet mignon, sushi quality tuna or you can indulge in the jumbo lobster.  With a variety of sizes, portions, and specially prepared dishes, the sky is the limit.

Peter Luger’s is all name, you are not cool if you do not say Peter Luger’s is the best steak place in the country because for years and years and years they had no competition. A great steak should have a nice crust on the outside, Peter Luger’s does not have a crust it has char. I do not like my steak burnt, char is not a good flavor in anything. Bryant and Copper’s and Morton’s are both very good. If you go away from the richie rich Northern Boulevard strip Teller’s in Islip also make a very very nice steak, they also have another place called PRime which I have not been to but have heard good things about. Never been to Blackstone’s but from what I hear they do have very nice steak.

Majors is OK, Bryant and Cooper Good but not the best, Ruth’s Chris, good especailly for a chain, but to me Jimmy Hayes in Island Park is Tops. Great tender meat, great ambience, polite staff, and always consistant. Pricey but worth it!!!
