Trip Reports - Another Steakhouse suggestion
Dec 12, 99, 9:36 am
Sparks, Manhattan (NYC) 46th Street between 2nd and 3rd avenues...
I went here with the visiting Quantum Leap and Marie... and we all loved it (I was here before to celebrate Geo1004's birthday and glad I came back.)
A very old style clubby steakhouse with exception service and terrific steaks and entrays. The place gets crowded so they advise to get an early reservation.
Yes, I like going to other steakhouses besides Ruth's Chris.

When you come to Tucson we will take you to El Corral.
The prices in the review may not be quite up to date.

Raleigh, NC has a great place near the airport called Angus Barn, www.angusbarn.com (http://www.angusbarn.com) .. A little pricey but great steak.
I'd go but my chauffeur is too frightened.

Catman... glad to see you returned to the scene of the crime. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif
The Angus Barn outside of Raleigh is good... I've only been there once but it was a great experience...
While we are tossing out suggestions, Harris's in San Francisco... I ate there this last weekend and it was great. This was a second visit... the porterhouse was wonderful (as was the 1997 Ridge Geyserville that went with it). http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

Gibson's in Chicago is one of the best in the country. Also Gene and Georgetti's.
Out in the wild west, Traildust is the best if you are really hungry. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif
... well, once more, I miss competent contributions of other 'overseas american' countries like Brazil and Argentina giving advice for their favorite Churrascerias.
and I soon might add a special column on the best swiss cheese fondue (and raclette) places if you don't stop to make me hungry!
... or how about a special 'Kobe' beef place in Japan?

I have never had swiss fondue. I must try it.
Maybe we should do a round the world trip just going to steakhouses and have steak and wine and beer and write trip reports when we come home! http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

There is only one true Kobe shabu-shabu and if it is served properly, it doesn't matter where you are.
As for Churrasceria's, I don't recall names, but I've been to a couple of great ones in Sao Paulo.
However, neither is a Steakhouse. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but a "Steakhouse" is a U.S. invention and it's only done well in the U.S.
Of course there are other similar places around the world, but the U.S. style is quite distinctive.
