4 Charles Prime Rib
4 Charles St., 10014 New York
$$$$ · Steakhouse

Some dishes here may break with tradition, but offer nothing short of tasty results. The menu showcases a sense of depth by going beyond the eponymous dish, which is served three ways. Others are firmly footed classics, served alongside creamed spinach, roasted garlic, and butter-laden mashed potatoes. Bookend your meal with cocktails and a wedge of Valrhona dark chocolate pie in an Oreo-cookie crust.

16 W. 22nd St., 10010 New York
$$$$ · Korean

First-timers here should head for the “Butcher’s Feast” where you’ll get four different cuts of beef and a luscious egg soufflé that’s a meal in itself. The USDA Prime meats are first presented raw for you to admire their marbling and color. Your server then rubs the smokeless grill with oil before expertly cooking them. The supporting cast of accompanying flavors—from the kimchi to the ssamjang—are all there to enhance their succulent and persuasive flavor even further.

228 W. 52nd St., 10019 New York
$$$ · Steakhouse

Gallaghers fresh sparkle is exhibited by the display kitchen, set behind glass panes. The chefs here turn out contemporary-minded fare like hamachi crudo with a yuzu-jalapeño vinaigrette to go with choice cuts of meat grilled over hickory. The rib steak is a bone-in ribeye that arrives mouthwateringly tender with a side of warm and savory house sauce.

10 E. 33rd St., 10016 New York
$$$$ · Korean

Hyun is a luxurious take on Korean barbecue, focusing squarely on top-notch Japanese A5 Wagyu, butchered in-house and grilled table-side. The omakase is a veritable feast that includes silken chawanmushi and hand-chopped tartare, but it's merely a precursor to the Wagyu slices, each of which arrives more beautifully marbled and deliciously grilled than the next. 

Macelleria Italian Steakhouse
142 Fifth Ave., 10803 Village of Pelham
$$$ · Steakhouse

“American classics with Italian flair” is how this polished Pelham spot bills itself. The beloved steakhouse has wooed neighborhood hearts by offering perfectly rendered steaks at reasonable prices, but it doesn’t stop there. Daily specials are also well worth a second glance. Sole is bathed in a tart, buttery sauce and paired with spinach risotto; diver scallops are bound in a fragrant truffle sauce studded with peppers, corn, and mushrooms.

Porter House
10 Columbus Circle, 10019 New York
$$$$ · Steakhouse

The Central Park views here are worthy of the price tag alone. The food can be straightforward—crab cakes with horseradish-mustard sauce, charred cowboy rib steak—but don’t shy away from sweet, slightly al dente corn bathed with a delightfully rich and creamy sauce. South Carolina coconut cake is one fluffy layer after another topped with a smooth, not-too-sweet icing and a heap of shaved coconut for crunch.
