DiningBuzz! - Where is your best/favourite steak tartare place in the US/Canada?
Although one usually gets decent steak tartare at a steakhouse, where are everyone's favourite steak tartare places?
My old standby was the Movenpick restaurant in Toronto, but sadly the Canadian franchise was sold a number of years ago and the restaurant only exists as Marche, a prepared foods outlet. Recently, I've been frequenting the bar at the Fairmont Boston Copley as their steak tartare is very generous with the olives :D

Olives in a steak tartare ???? :eek:
There are a number of places in Montreal where steak tartare is prepared comme il se doit (horse meat for the purists or quality beef, hand cut to order, etc).
Yup, green olives. Sounds weird but it works.
I usually get the bison tartare at Pied de Chochon but when traveling I often wonder about hidden gems that are not steakhouses.

speaking of olives, I go to the Olive Garden for my steak Tartare

good steak tartare is tough to find, recently we enjoyed it recently at Leopold in Chicago:
slagel heart of ribeye tartare | $16
shallot, caper, farm egg yolk, frisee, whole grain mustard, chef's toast
meat was finely chopped.
With some good Belgian beer, Mrs Sweet Willie & I were 'yumming' it up, our waiter had a chuckle as I guess we were being a bit noisy:D

(and if you go, get the main entree of the smoked rabbit, out of sight!!)
We have a number of very good Middle Eastern restaurants in Chicagoland, I'm looking forward to trying some lamb tartare next time I go to one.
