National Steak Day

National Steak Day

What makes a perfect steak? Certainly, the quality of the meat is fundamental. Many of the best steakhouses in the country only serve the highest grade of beef available in the United States — USDA Prime — that features extensive marbling and melt-in-your mouth texture. Only 1-3% of all beef produced in the country is rated Prime. Others contend the breed, age and diet of the cow are the most critical elements. A dry- or wet-aging process brings out flavor and tenderness and is truly an art. And, without a doubt, the expert flick of the chef’s wrist and precise timing at the grill is where the alchemy really begins. But where do the best steaks reside? We visited chophouses across the country and found where beef is king, sides are queens, and cocktails are kinda like a weird duke or something. Here are a few places that do steak better than anyone else.
